Lots of Tests, VSTest.Console, and trx Result File Parsing



  1. Not specify tests through checked in code
  2. Use VSTest.Console
  3. Execute all tests in a single result file
  4. Have Bamboo read results

I have 1-3 working using a powershell script I wrote.  I search for dll's named with a specific pattern, such as *Tests.dll.  I pass this array into the execution of VSTest.Console, and I get a single trx file in folder named TestResults which VSTest.Console creates.

Problem 1, I can't specify the name of the trx file.  I believe this can be done with a settings file, but I'm trying to have all the configuration in Bamboo so that changes don't require me branching and doing pull requests, etc.  

So I'm attempting to fix this by renaming the file to result.trx and setting up a MSTest Parser. Problem is, it never finds the file.  

In the MSTest Parser task, I've specified the "MSTest Test Results File/Directory" value as result.trx and TestResult\result.trx and ${}\TestResults\result.trx. Unfortunately, none of it works.

FYI, I got this working by copying the result.trx file to the root bamboo build folder and removing all pathing information from the MSTest Parser task.

The error I get from the MSTest Parser task is; Could not find test result reports in the C:\Bamboo\Agent-3\xml-data\build-dir\DEV-MAS-DEV directory.

I have the same error

Failing task since test cases were expected but none were found.
