      Description

      The JUnit Result Archiver will fail the build if the test result files that match the filemask do not have a very recent modification time. The error message it prints is this:
      "Test reports were found but none of them are new. Did tests run?"

      This can be inconvenient in several settings; notably, when the clocks on the master and slave fall out of sync, or when the test results were generated by some process that isn't part of the build itself – maybe they were scp'd from somewhere else, for instance. Or for testing the JUnitResultArchiver itself.

      In my opinion, the behavior should be changed such that check-for-recent-modifications should be off by default. Additionally, the user should be able to specify a "recent" threshold via a setting.

            Is there any progress on this? We are also hit by this, so currently we have only the option to disable junit recording at all...

            Echoing what Alex Dubrouski said, this totally breaks incremental builds from tools like Gradle.

            I'm also blocked by this – I use a single Jenkins pipeline job to execute tests (across multiple environments – we want reporting on a per-environment level), and then another job executes which pulls those JUnit results into the workspace, and builds a report. I am encountering this on XMLs that are ~5 seconds "old".

             

            This Powershell script works, but still not the greatest:

            $files = Get-ChildItem "${WORKSPACE}"
              foreach ($i in $files) {
              $i.LastWriteTime = $(Get-Date)
            }
