  • Initial release


The JUnit plug-in does not require configuration, like other types of UrbanCode Velocity plug-ins. To use the plug-in send an HTTP Post request with the data to parse. Whenever a there is a hit to the endpoint, the data is parsed and displayed as metrics in UrbanCode Velocity.

Integration type

The JUnit plug-in is a parser type plug-in. It parses JUnit XML data.

Invoking the plug-in

You can invoke the plug-in manually using a REST Call or by using a Jenkins plug-in to integrate UrbanCode Velocity in a Jenkins environment.

Invoke using Jenkins plug-in

Install the UrbanCode Velocity plug-in into your Jenkins server. In your freestyle job or pipeline use the UCV-Upload Metrics File to UrbanCode Velocity step and provide the required fields. This step allows your build job to upload generated coverage results files to UrbanCode Velocity.

Invoke the plug-in using a Rest call

When using a REST call to invoke the Code Coverage plug-in, it must be a POST method and include the location of the UrbanCode Velocity quality data endpoint.

The following request sample shows a REST call that you can copy and update as necessary. Key points about the snippet:

  • The URL points to the UrbanCode Velocity quality data endpoint. Update with the server location for your installation of UrbanCode Velocity.
  • The BODY of the call is a multipart/form data. It includes information about the payload.

URL: https://<url_urbancodevelocity_server>/reporting-consumer/qualityData 
BODY (multipart/form-data):
  payload: <payload_json_object_string> // See below for schema format
 testArtifact: <junit_xml_file>

The following shows the schema for the payload. Replace the angle brackets with your values for the parameters.

  "tenant_id": "<tenant_id>",    // required Tenant ID
  "metricName": "<metric_name>", // optional: name for recurring test set
  "application": {
    "name": "<application_name>"  //Name of application
  "record": {
    "recordName": "<record_name>", // optional: Name for this record
    "executionDate": 1547983466015, // optional: UNIX Epoch
    "pluginType": "junitXML",
    "dataFormat": "junitXML"
  "build": {  // Optional: One of the following fields must be included 
    "buildId": "<build_id>",
    "jobExternalId": "<external_job_id>",
    "url": "<build_url>",
  "commitId": "<commit_id>",  // optional
  "pullRequestId": "<pullrequest_id>", // optional
  "environment": "<environment_name>" // optional
