How do we integrate soapUI test created using soap UI Free version

Hello team,


How do we  integrate and run soap UI tests as part of continuous Integration process ?

our Soap UI tests are created using SOAP UI free version .Can anyone outline steps ?



  • when start gets removed .....i don't see the build running on the build exectutor status window  however build  still got executed and failed with this below message. I tried command line option and testrunner.bat is gettting called from commandline with no issues

    I have had testrunner running on jenkins build

    The only difference I am using a pro version

    open source should be not much different

    Is that the correct location

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.2.1\bin\testrunner.bat"


    Try your command using command line prompt

    I usually do that before adding it to my jenkins build.

    There are multiple ways to achieve the same.


    • Using testrunner utility of SOAPUI. Call this utility from Jenkins
    • Using apache-ant, which internally calls testrunner of SoapUI. Call the respective target. You need to write the build scripts.
    • Using maven, there are plug-in available for free version.

    You may have a look at this short demo

      Thanks you folks for all your suggestions ! I opted to choose to integrate our existing soapUI tests (created using soap UI Free version)   and  to call test runner utility from Jenkins .


      I followed these below  steps however job seems to never finish : I had to abort the job , Not sure how we can check if utility is getting called at this point ? Any advise is much appreciated . Let me know if i missed any configuration steps or not calling utility correctly via windows command line options


      Downloaded jenkins locally -Jenkins ver. 2.76

      Create a job in jenkins  and configured job to execute window command line option :


      start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.2.1\bin\testrunner.bat" -sGetRenBatchesTestSuite -cGetRenbatches -r -a -f"C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.2.1\bin\TestResults" -I C:\Users\xyzusername\GitHub\ren-api2\Tests\Automated_Test\GetRenBatches-soapui-project.xml


      click build now on new job created 

      Job never finished so aborted the job and  console output log shows as

        Does the same command work form command line? what if you remove start in the command?
