AWS CodeBuild Test Reports for Gradle builds

Although AWS documentation has instructions for adding Test Reports for a maven build they currently lack instructions for a gradle build.

You can find the maven instructions here: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/devops/test-reports-with-aws-codebuild/

Assuming you have your gradle wrapper in your code commit repository, you just need to update two sections in your buildspec.yml

First, update your buildspec.yml to call the gradlew test by changing the “phases -> builds -> commands” to “bash ./gradlew test”.

Second, update the buildspec.yml to where gradle stores the test reports by changing “reports -> ReportGroupName -> base-directory” to “build/test-results”.

Here is an example of a buildspec.yml with the updates.

version<span class="token operator">:</span> <span class="token number">0.2</span>
phases<span class="token operator">:</span>
  build<span class="token operator">:</span>
    commands<span class="token operator">:</span>
      - bash ./gradlew test
reports<span class="token operator">:</span> #New
  TestReports<span class="token operator">:</span> # CodeBuild will create a report group called <span class="token string">"TestReports"</span>.
    files<span class="token operator">:</span> #Store all of the files
      - '**/*'
    base-directory<span class="token operator">:</span> 'build/test-results' # Location of the reports
cache<span class="token operator">:</span>
  paths<span class="token operator">:</span>
    - '/root/.gradle/**/*'
