Running Unity in batchmode gives a result file with the wrong test type

Deployment Management



Priority: 7Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 3Workaround is possible

Repro Steps:

1. Open command prompt
2. Write this command: "{UNITY_PATH}\Editor\Unity.exe" -batchmode -runEditorTests -projectPath "{PROJECT_PATH}" -editorTestsResultFile "{PROJECT_PATH}\results.xml"
3. Open the "results.xml" file
4. See that the "type" is equal to "TestSuite" and not to "TestRun"

Expected: The "results.xml" file to show that the "type" is equal to "TestRun"

Actual: The "results.xml" file to show that the "type" is equal to "TestSuite"

Reproduced on: 5.6.0f1,

Can't reproduce on : 5.5.2f1: just doesn't create the "results.xml" file, 5.4.0f3: Aborts batchmode due to failure. "An exception was thrown when running unit tests"

The user also attached the "results.xml' file.

    I can still reproduce this error in version 5.6.2f1.

    As mentioned above, it is currently not possible to properly publish the xml-reports on a Continuous Integration System.

    We also have this issue and cannot parse the xml automatically, which makes Unit test reporting impossible.

    Specifically, the issue is that any reports produced now are malformed XML that doesn't follow either the NUnit3 or NUnit2 format specifications. This means that we cannot parse them automatically to actually *use* the results for anything meaningful.

    We have this issue too, running unity on Mac OS X 10.11.6 and triggering batchmode tests through Jenkins over SSH.
    Coupled with issue 892798 (inexplicably closed as by design?), these prevent any automated testing, which unfortunately means 5.6.0 is off limits for a lot of studios doing anything beyond indie/hobbyist projects, including us.
