Neoload Web needs to be set up and ready, the docker container just triggers Neoload Web to via the nlweb API. I would suggest reviewing the NLWeb training in the academy: https://academy.neotys.com/courses/neoload-web/

Jenkins can instruct Neoload Web to launch a test via the Neoload Web API, to make this simple, we have provided a Docker wrapper around the API, have Jenkins launch the Docker container with the required settings and that will contact the api and run the test. I don’t have the link handy on my phone but search Docker HUb for Neoload and you will find it

Hi Neil, Thank you for the response. I tried to use below command in the neoload executable of the jenkins build. But it failed. Please let know where I am going wrong.
docker run -d --rm \ -e MODE=Managed -e NEOLOADWEB_URL=full url\ -e NEOLOADWEB_TOKEN=token value \ neotys/neoload-controller
I get the exception
java.nio.file.InvalidPathException: Illegal char <:> at index 57:

Thank you, very much -Neil
Do I need to trigger command line from Jenkins build or execute a Neoload scenario?
if I use the command line trigger, I need to trigger the neolaodcmd.exe in neoload web controller and then run below command. How to trigger neolaodcmd in controller?
docker run --rm\-e NEOLOAD_PROJECT_URL=giturl.zip\-e NEOLOADWEB_URL=nlwebapiurl\-e NEOLOADWEB_TOKEN=token value\-e TEST_RESULT_NAME=Git-Jenkins-NL\-e SCENARIO_NAME=SN\ neotys/neoload-web-test-launcher

If I use the 2nd option of using Neoload plugin in Jenkins build, again how to point to the executable and other project settings. Sorry , am very new to Jenkins usage on a docker. Is there any documentation with examples?
