This page describes how to configure a Bamboo task to parse MSTest results.

.NET builder tasks in Bamboo (for example NAnt) do not parse test information as part of the task. To have the test results parsed, you need to configure a test task such as MSTest Parser.

(info) Note that each test results file must have a unique name. You can use Bamboo variables to achieve this. Here is a customer-supplied example that includes the revision and build numbers in the name of the test file:


To configure a MSTest Parser task:

  1. Navigate to the Tasks configuration tab for the job (this will be the default job if creating a new plan).
  2. Select the name of an existing MSTest Parser task, or select Add task > MSTest Parser to create a new task.
  3. Update the task settings:

    Task description
    Enter a description of the task, for display in Bamboo.

    Disable this task
    Check, or clear, to selectively run this task.

    Add condition to task
    Make task run only when a certain condition is met. 
    You can find conditions on Atlassian Marketplace or implement your own.  

    MSTest Test Results File/Directory
    Enter the name of the test results file. The test file must be in MSTest format. For more information on MSTest, see this MSDN page.

  4. Select Save.
