Installing the new ExentX Reports

I am using the ExtentX reports for automation reports. Now I had upgraded to ExtentX. The below steps describes the way to install MongoDB, Node Js ans Sails.

Step 1 – Download NodeJs and Mongod-   |
Step 2 – To configure the Mongodb
Step 2.1 Run cmd as admin
Step 2.2 cmd  – cd “C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.4\bin”
Step 2.3 cmd  – mongod  –dbpath C:\AutoReports  // [Create the folder and give the reference – Mandatory Step]
After Step 2 there will be cmd running and waiting for connection. Next Step will create the connection from extent X
Step 3 – To configure the Extent X reports and Node Js.
Step 3.1 Run cmd as admin // Open a new cmd.
Step 3.2 cmd  – cd C:\ReportEngine\extentx-community-1.0.1  // Extract the ExtentX to any location
Step 3.3 cmd  – npm install
Step 3.4 cmd  – npm install  sails -g

if sail lift didnt work 

add new 'node' commands like 'npm', using batch scripting.

Create a sails.cmd file in your desktop. (new text file -> rename to 'sails.cmd').
Right-click on sails.cmd and select Edit.
Copy and paste this code into your sails.cmd:

SET arguments=%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
node %APPDATA%\npm\node_modules\sails\bin\sails.js %arguments%

Save and copy your sails.cmd into your Node.js installation directory, for example: C:\Program Files\nodejs

Now the Sails lift must have established the connection with the MongoDB
To view the report – http://cmtest02.clearmatch.local:1337

*cmd – to run in console application

Hope it helps someone somewhere 🙂


Note : If it didn’t work. Just Install any registry cleaner software like CClearner and clear all registries

Then npm install sails -g

After that try npm install
