Last Modified: August 15, 2019

Publish test results, log parametric data, and attach additional files to results for review or analysis using the SystemLink Test Monitor API.

The Test Monitor API, which is available in G, Python, and .NET, communicates with the Test Monitor service over an HTTP connection.

If you use TestStand, refer to Integrating Test Monitor with TestStand in this manual.

  2. In NI SystemLink Web Application, click Test Monitor. Results from the test you created will instantly appear here and update in real time.
  3. For a report attachment, use the File Ingestion API, or File Transfer API, to upload an attachment to the server.
  4. To download the report attachment in NI SystemLink Web Application, complete the following steps.
    1. In Test Monitor, select Test Results.
    2. Double-click the test whose attachment you want to download.
    3. Expand Attachments to select the attachment and click Download.
