btw, you did not attach the image.

You mean this?
(You can open a Jira ticket and fix in PR on

The Surefire Report Plugin only has one goal (the other is a workaround):

   - surefire-report:failsafe-report-only
   This goal does not run the tests, it only builds the IT reports. See
   SUREFIRE-257 <>
   - surefire-report:report
   Generates the test results report into HTML format.
   - surefire-report:report-only
   This goal does not run the tests, it only builds the reports. It is
   provided as a work around for SUREFIRE-2
