GitLab CI/CD artifacts reports types

Use artifacts:reports to:

  • Collect test reports, code quality reports, security reports, and other artifacts generated by included templates in jobs.
  • Some of these reports are used to display information in:

The test reports are collected regardless of the job results (success or failure). You can use artifacts:expire_in to set up an expiration date for their artifacts.

Some artifacts:reports types can be generated by multiple jobs in the same pipeline, and used by merge request or pipeline features from each job.

To be able to browse the report output files, include the artifacts:paths keyword.
