OnAfterTestRun Trigger

Executed after a test function of a test codeunit has been run.

OnAfterTestRun(CodeunitID : Integer;CodeunitName : Text[30];FunctionName : Text[128]; FunctionTestPermissions : TestPermissions; Success : Boolean)



Type: Integer

Specifies the ID of the codeunit that has run.


Type: Text

Specifies the name of the test codeunit that has run.


Type: Text

The name of the test function that has run.


This parameter is empty when the OnAfterTestRun trigger is called for the whole test codeunit.


Type: TestPermissions

Specifies the permission set level to use on the test run. The value is retrieved from the TestPermissions property of the test codeunit or test function that is run. The parameter accepts the following values:

  • Disabled
  • Restrictive
  • NonRestrictive
  • InheritFromTestCodunit - Specifies that a test the function uses the TestPermissions property setting of the test codeunit to which it belongs.

For more information, see Testing With Permission Sets.


Type: Boolean

true indicates that the test function run succeeded; otherwise, false indicates that the test function run failed.

Applies to

Test runner codeunits. Test runner codeunits have the SubType property set to TestRunner.

Note: This trigger is optional and not available on a test runner codeunit by default. To implement this trigger, you must manually add it as a function.


A test runner codeunit manages the execution of test codeunits that are run from its OnRun function. When a test codeunit runs, it executes each test function one at a time in the codeunit. When implemented, the OnAfterTestRun trigger is called after each test function has run and after all of the test codeunit has run.

The OnAfterTestRun trigger suppresses the automatic display of the results message after the test codeunit runs.


To return the error message for a failed test function run, use the GETLASTERRORTEXT Function.

You can use the OnAfterTestRun trigger to perform post-processing, such as logging, or to automate tests by integrating the test runner codeunit with a test management framework.

The TestPermissions parameter, enables you can control how to handle applied permission sets, if any, after the test is run. For more information about testing with permision sets, including an example, see Testing With Permission Sets.

The OnAfterTestRun trigger is run in its own database transaction.


The following OnAfterTestRun trigger code logs test results to a test reporting system. This example requires that you create a record variable named log.

log.UnitId := CodeunitId;
log.Unit := CodeunitName;
log.Func := FunctionName;
log.Before := Before;
If Success THEN
  log.Status := log.Status::Success
  log.Status := log.Status::Failure;
  IF FunctionName <> '' THEN
    log.Message := GETLASTERRORTEXT;

The GETLASTERRORTEXT function returns the text that was contained in the last error message.
