  • You do not have to install anything on your machine.
  • You are probably already familiar with Jenkins.
  • While the tests are running, you can continue using your machine as usual, because everything is happening in Jenkins.
  • Debugging failed tests will be reasonably easy, since you will see logs and screenshots of the test run.
  • It will be reasonable fast.


  • You will need internet connection while running the tests.
  • You might not be familiar with Jenkins, so you will have to learn how to use yet another tool.

Check if the Jenkins job is configured to run for a repository[edit]

- project:
    name: RelatedArticles
    repository: mediawiki/extensions/RelatedArticles
