How to resolve Auto Discovery Method Factory Error or Auto Import Method Factory in your newly created Soap UI-Jenkins Job?

January 16, 2017

If you are on Windows 7 and using SoapUI 5.2.1 or SoapUI 5.3.0 then you might be facing an issue as mentioned below when you running your SoapUI-Jenkins job for the very first time after installation of SoapUI

(or)

If you are Windows 7 and have recently migrated your SoapUI versions from 5.0.0 to 5.2.0 or from 5.2.1 to 5.3.0, then it is most likely that you will end getting the following issue anyway.

Are you not being able to run a SoapUI project via your Jenkins job, getting an error as like this:

Then in such case, the solution to the problem is pretty simple. Follow the steps given below to resolve your issue:

If you are running SoapUI version 5.2.1 or 5.3.0 (I found this issue on both the versions listed just earlier), the problem is with the default plugins installed under “C:\Users\<user name>.soapuios\plugin“.

  • For SoapUI 5.2.1, there are 4 plugins that are installed in this directory:
    • readyapi-swaggerhub-plugin-1.0.jar
    • ready-mqtt-plugin-dist.jar
    • ready-uxm-plugin-1.0.1-dist.jar
    • soapui-swagger-plugin-2.2-dist.jar
  • For SoapUI 5.3.0, there are 5 plugins that are installed in this directory:
    • readyapi-postman-1.0.1.jar
    • readyapi-swaggerhub-plugin-1.0.jar
    • ready-mqtt-plugin-dist.jar
    • ready-uxm-plugin-1.0.1-dist.jar
    • soapui-swagger-plugin-2.2-dist.jar

You can resolve your issue (for any version of SoapUI listed above) by just renaming the original folder ‘plugins‘ to ‘plugins_NOTUsed‘ (or any other name of your choice). You might be thinking, by just renaming this folder how the actual problem has been solved – To explain this, it is just so that default plugins could be forced to be hidden during runtime and hence the problem doesn’t arise anymore.
