Failed NUnit tests show as skipped

I created a NUnit test and it works fine when everything passes, however once a test fails, then that test is shown as Skipped/Quarantined rather than failed. I found this issue which got solved by adding ";format=nunit2" to the result option. In our Bamboo version (7.0.3 build 70016) this gets done automatically already.

How to make Bamboo understand NUnit results?

Test result from log:

I think I fixed it. Needed to add

--result TestResults.xml;format=nunit3

 into the console parameters. It seems the NUnit parser expects nunit3 style, but the runner by default still produced nunit2 style

While this fixed the test showing incorrectly as skipped and it shows correctly as failed, it does not show the error log why it failed.


Edit: Turns out it does not show lines written to TextContext.Error. When using the error messages in Assert.Fail() or similar it works
