Bamboo Build should NOT fail if JUnit parser task fail


We are using Bamboo Built in Maven task to compile  java code , run tests  and  Junit Parser to parse the test results as shown below

Stage 1 

             Job 1

                      Maven Task1 

                      Junit Parser1

Stage 2 

              Job 2

                       Maven Task2

                       Junit Parser2


If any test cases fail , Junit task is failing  the entire build.

Is there a way we can make Junit parser NOT to fail the build?

Hi @Venkat Pasula ! Welcome to the community!

In fact, I believe this is by design: we should not consider a build as "green" if it has failing tests.

As far as I remember, even without a Junit Parser task, the build would fail because Maven output would have an error code (this is why we always put our Junit Parser tasks as final).

Hope this helps!

Hi @Cristiano Mariano 

I understand the intention behind the Junit parser task to fail for the test failure. But we have a specific need in our deployment pipeline - apart from unit test run, we recently included API contract testing as one of our stage and we want to display the test results in the artifact but do not want to fail the build (as we do not want to stop the deployment because of the failed test runs for now as its a new capability) Note: As this contract testing stage is not in the end, and we have other stage as final - we can't get a way out by making it as final


Is there any alternate options for this ?
