  • We have a job which triggers three other jobs and aggregates their test results using post build actions: * Aggregate post build test results (german: "Nachgelagerte Testergebnisse zusammenfassen") *- [x] Aggregate all post build jobs *- [x] Aggregate failed build result * Build jobs (german: "Weitere Projekte bauen") *- [x] trigger only on build success *- [ ] trigger even when build is instable *- [ ] trigger even when build fails When starting this job it fails quickly with an NullPointer exception: {code} Started by user anonymous Building in workspace /ps/devop/jenkins/data/jobs/selenium_firefox/workspace ERROR: Publisher hudson.tasks.test.AggregatedTestResultPublisher aborted due to exception java.lang.NullPointerException at hudson.tasks.test.AggregatedTestResultPublisher$TestResultAction.getProject(AggregatedTestResultPublisher.java:173) at hudson.tasks.test.AggregatedTestResultPublisher$TestResultAction.<init>(AggregatedTestResultPublisher.java:146) at hudson.tasks.test.AggregatedTestResultPublisher$TestResultAction.<init>(AggregatedTestResultPublisher.java:135) at hudson.tasks.test.AggregatedTestResultPublisher.perform(AggregatedTestResultPublisher.java:90) at hudson.tasks.BuildStepMonitor$1.perform(BuildStepMonitor.java:20) at hudson.model.AbstractBuild$AbstractBuildExecution.perform(AbstractBuild.java:785) at hudson.model.AbstractBuild$AbstractBuildExecution.performAllBuildSteps(AbstractBuild.java:757) at hudson.model.Build$BuildExecution.post2(Build.java:183) at hudson.model.AbstractBuild$AbstractBuildExecution.post(AbstractBuild.java:706) at hudson.model.Run.execute(Run.java:1703) at hudson.model.FreeStyleBuild.run(FreeStyleBuild.java:46) at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:88) at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:231) Finished: FAILURE {code} The aggregation is crucial for our dashboard which displays the overall testresults history chart.
