QMetry v8.6 introduces a brand new reporting module. In this guide we will run you through upgrading QMetry Test Management Reports in your environment. These steps are to be followed on your QMetry Reports server hosted on the linux machine.


  • Please write to QMetry Support by sending an Email at,  to get the latest version of QMetry reports.

  • Download the file on your report server's /opt directory once you receive the report upgrade package.

Step 2. Check the running containers using the following command

  • sudo su -
  • docker ps

If they are not seen running start them using command : docker start qmetry-reports-db qmetry-reports


  • Enter QMetry Report Path  -  /opt 
  • Wait for the .jar to finish executing.
  • Type exit to exit the docker.

Step 8 - Restart Reports Services

  • docker restart qmetry-reports-db qmetry-reports

Step 9. Configure Run a Force Sync of Reports and Trigger a Sync (Post Upgrade Step)

  • Under Sync Data tab, setup the Report Data Sync from your reports server to QMetry Reporting. 
    • Report Server URL : This should be set to your report server domain URL followed by port 8080 as shown below. Ensure port 8080 is open on the reports server.
    • Click on Test to ensure successful connection and then hit "Test & Save".
    • Hit "Sync Data" to start Reports Data Sync.

Note : "Sync Data" should be run after the upgrade. Time taken to sync depends on amount of data in QMetry. Sync Progress and Status can be monitored as shown in the below screenshot. QMetry custom reports remain inaccessible during a sync in progress and is recommended to be run only during off-peak hours.

Users can start using QMetry Reports when the sync is completed.

  • cd /var/lib/docker/volumes/spark_report_spark-apps/_data
  • sh 
  • You will be prompted for several options.
    • Hit `enter` repeatedly to skip all those and type when forceSync option comes up
    • Hit `enter` again to skip when prompted to "Enter Memory to allocate in GB(s) to Spark".
  • Wait for the script to finish executing. Depending on your data this process can take ~1 hour. Users can continue to use QMetry during this time.
