How can I take screenshots of failed testcases in Jenkins pipeline?

How to take screenshots of failed testcases in Katalon, but save them in Jenkins? When saved, how exactly do I open them? A further helpful thing would be to know how to create a ticket in Jira when a testcase fails and attach the screenshot with the fail message.

I have tried WebUI.screenschot(path) but I did not know which exact path to give for Jenkins, nor how to extract the Screenshot.

Thank you very much for your help!

Welcome to Katalon Community.

Can you please try this WebUI.takeScreenshot(path): [WebUI] Take Screenshot | Katalon Docs. With the path location, you can refer to: Ralative path for screenshot in Jenkins stores file in installation directory to set the relative path with integration in Jenkins.

In terms of ticket, I will need to ask help from my team whether it can be done. Back to you soon.

I don’t know if it will work in Jenkins, but the screenshots will go where you indicate in the “path” parameter, such as below. I save the screenshots under my Reports folder and each Test Suite will have its own as well. KS will make the folder if it does not already exist.

gReportPathway = ".\\Reports\\Screenshots\\RT WP 012\\"

and in your code, you would add a filename to your screenshot; in this case, “Authors1.png”.

WebUI.takeScreenshot(gReportPathway + "Authors1.png")

If you have a somewhat larger web page, there is also:

WebUI.takeFullPageScreenshot(gReportPathway + "Authors2.png")
