Test task ends with "died unexpectedly" - newbie question


#1

Hi,

I am new to CircleCI, so this might be a basic question.

I have a java gradle project on Github that I linked to CircleCI. I am using the inferred configuration.

The project is compiled correctly, a lot of tests are run, but at the end of task it displays the following:

export TERM="dumb"
if [ -e ./gradlew ]; then ./gradlew test;else gradle test;fi
died unexpectedly

Locally the tests run ok. The only thing that I think might be related is that it takes about 18minutes to run.

Thanks

Ruben

What specifically is the run time? Individual commands run from CircleCI have a default timeout of 10 minutes. Might that be the issue?


#3

Yes, that is probably the case, the test step take about 15min locally. Is it possible to change this timeout?


#4

Sure, the link that I gave in my previous post shows you how. Basically, you want to add a ‘timeout’ modifier below your command in circle.yml to set a custom timeout time.

Based on your initial post, this means you’ll need to create a circle.yml file if you don’t have one already. That same link has info on what goes in that file.
