When running a test case from Jenkins using Junitlisa, we are not able to pass the expected registry URL to jenkins from build.xml.

It takes local registry(tcp://GAJSR000:2010/Registry) not from build.xml and file. Getting an error as below

Release: LSASVR99000-8.3-LISA-Server


Add  lisa.registry.URL=<Complete_tcp_registry_url> in file where you are running test case (in this case, it is on Jenkins server) or You can add remote registry details to junitlisa tag by giving attribute testRegistry="tcp://<Hot_name>:<port_number>/Registry" in build.xml file 

Ex: <junitlisa testRegistry="tcp://MyHost:2010/Registry" toDir="${testReportDir}"
