    Insert Screenshots of a Failed Test Cases in Extent Reports:

    In this post, we see how to add Screenshots in Extent Reports – Selenium WebDriver.

    Check this post for Latest Version of Extent Reports.

    Pre-requisites to Insert Screenshots in Extent Reports:

    1. Java should be installed (Link to Install and setup Java )
    2. TestNG should be installed
    3. Extent Report Jars (Version 2.41.2) – Download
    4. extent-config.xml – It allows to configure HTML Report

    Steps To Generate Extent Reports:

    1. Firstly, create a TestNG project in eclipse
    2. Now download extent library files from the following link:
    3. Add the downloaded library files in your project
    4. Add Selenium WebDriver Jars
    5. Create a java class say ‘ExtentReportsClass’ and add following code to it

    NOTE: In this post, I am not explaining everything. In the earlier post (i.e., Generate ExtentReports), I have mentioned detailed explanation. In this I just explain how to capture screenshot and pass it to the extent reports.

    Below mentioned method is to capture the screenshot and returns the path of the screenshot.

    Same code (getScreenshot method) I have placed in the below TestNG Class. You could also place this code in your utilities function class.

    If you are a beginner and wants to know how to capture screenshot then check this post on how to capture screenshot in Selenium and this post to capture full page screenshot using aShot

    Program to insert captured screenshots in extent reports:


    By using this external XML file (extent-config.xml), we could change the details such as Report Theme (either standard or dark), Report Title, Document Title etc.,

    We use extent object and use loadConfig() method to load this xml file.

    Refresh the project after execution of above file. You could find an HTML file named “STMExtentReport.html” in your test-output folder. Copy the location of the STMExtentReport.html file and open it by using any browser. You could see a beautiful high rich HTML reports as shown below.

    Extent Report – Test Summary Report Which Contains Screenshot of a Failed Test Case:

    Screenshot Failed Test Case Extent Reports


    This way we could add screenshots of a failed test cases in extent reports.

    1. Thanks for the superb post on capture screenshot in extent reports.

      • Hi Ramesh, try this OutputType.BASE64 instead of OutputType.FILE
