Autotest Reporting API

The Autotest Reporting API allows you to embed TKO spreadsheets, tables and graphs into your own HTML pages. This can be used to create powerful, customizable dashboards based on Autotest results.

Currently, only graphs are supported. Spreadsheets and tables are coming soon.


In order to use the Autotest Reporting API, your HTML page needs to load the Autotest Reporting API Javascript library and then call it to create widgets. Here’s a simple skeleton:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="http://your-autotest-server/embedded-tko/autotest.EmbeddedTkoClient.nocache.js">
  <script type="text/javascript">
    function initialize() {

      // code to setup widgets goes here.  for example:
      var plot = Autotest.createMetricsPlot(document.getElementById("plot_canvas"));
      plot.refresh(...); // see below

<body onload="initialize()">
  <!-- document outline goes here.  for example: -->
  <div id="plot_canvas"></div>

The first script tag loads the Autotest Reporting API library. The initialize() function then calls Autotest.initialize(), which tells the library where to find the Autotest server running the TKO web interface. Finally, it can proceed to call Autotest.create* methods to create widgets. All Autotest.create* methods accept a DOM Element to which they will attach themselves.


You can create a MetricsPlot widget using Autotest.createMetricsPlot(parentElement). Metrics plot widgets have one method, refresh(parameters). This interface will be changing soon so it won’t be documented in detail; please see the example in frontend/client/src/autotest/public/EmbeddedTkoClientTest or ask showard if you would like to use it and have questions.
