How to use HTML Publisher Plugin:

HtmlPublisher plugin is useful to publish the html reports that your build generates to hudson webpage. Below are the steps to publish and archive the html report files

1. Click on the Configure option for your Hudson job.

2. In the post build portion, look for the Publish HTML Reports option and select the checkbox. See the screen shot below

Fill the path to the directory containing the html reports in the "HTML directory to archive" field. Specify the pages to display (default index.html); you can specify multiple comma-separated pages and each will be a tab on the report page. Finally, give a name in the Report Title field, which will be used to provide a link to the report.

3. After saving the configuration, run build once. The published HTML reports are available to view from within Hudson with convenient links in the dashboard.
