Test::Reporter::Transport::Metabase - Metabase transport for Test::Reporter


version 1.999008


    my $report = Test::Reporter->new(
        transport => 'Metabase',
        transport_args => [
          uri     => 'http://metabase.example.com:3000/',
          id_file => '/home/jdoe/.metabase/metabase_id.json',

    # use space-separated in a CPAN::Reporter config.ini
    transport = Metabase uri http://metabase.example.com:3000/ ...


This module submits a Test::Reporter report to the specified Metabase instance.

This requires a network connection to the Metabase uri provided. If you wish to save reports during offline operation, see Test::Reporter::Transport::File. (Eventually, you may be able to run a local Metabase instance to queue reports for later transmission, but this feature has not yet been developed.)


See Test::Reporter and Test::Reporter::Transport for general usage information.

Transport arguments

Unlike most other Transport classes, this class requires transport arguments to be provided as key-value pairs:

    my $report = Test::Reporter->new(
        transport => 'Metabase',
        transport_args => [
          uri     => 'http://metabase.example.com:3000/',
          id_file => '/home/jdoe/.metabase/metabase_id.json',

Arguments include:

uri (required)

The uri argument gives the network location of a Metabase instance to receive reports.

id_file (required)

The id_file argument must be a path to a Metabase ID file. If you do not already have an ID file, use the metabase-profile program to create one.

  $ metabase-profile

This creates the file metabase_id.json in the current directory. You can also give an --output argument to save the file to a different location or with a different name.

client (optional)

The client argument is optional and specifies the type of Metabase::Client to use to transmit reports to the target Metabase. It defaults to Metabase::Client::Simple.


These methods are only for internal use by Test::Reporter.


    my $sender = Test::Reporter::Transport::File->new( $params );

The new method is the object constructor.


    $sender->send( $report );

The send method transmits the report.
