Code and Documents




TestStand XML reports can be converted to other formats using eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT). This can be useful for importing Analyzer Warnings or Errors into a tool that is not compatible with the TestStand XML report schema.



This example stylesheet can be used to convert TestStand Sequence Analyzer results to a JUnit format compatible with the Jenkins JUnit plugin. This allows users to view basic analyzer results in Jenkins:



This example stylesheet was written for TestStand 2016 - to use it with a different version of TestStand, modify the PropertyObjectFile stylesheet version reference:


<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ts="http://www.ni.com/TestStand/19.0.0/PropertyObjectFile" exclude-result-prefixes="ts">

Hardware and Software Requirements
