    Hi absoatest,

    Here are the answers to your questions

    Q1 : Is it possible to get pdf report (not html) in CLI mode (using soatestclie.exe), if yes how.

    Yes, this is possible.
    From the documentation: Parasoft SOAtest User's Guide > Setup and Testing Fundamentals > Running SOAtest > Testing from the Command Line Interface (soatestcli) >cli Options

    -report %REPORT_FILE%

    Generates an XML report to the given file %REPORT_FILE% and adds an HTML (or PDF or custom format—if specified using the report.format option) report with the same name—and a different extension—in the same directory.

    Mine looks like this
    C:\Program Files\Parasoft\SOAtest\9.9>soatestcli -data "C:\myWorkspace" -config "soatest.user://Example Configuration" -localsettings c:\temp\ls.ls
    -resource Bookstore/bookstore.tst -report c:\temp\reports\myReport.pdf

    Now you will notice that the docs say that you have to specify the correct format in report.format. This is done in your Localsettings file. Here is mine
    #Exported local settings
    #Mon Jan 04 12:13:26 PST 2016
    report.custom.extension=pdf
    report.failed_tests_only=false
    report.format=pdf
    report.generate_htmls=true
    session.tag=${config_name}

    Q2 : In order to get test results for a run on email (as email attachment), is it must to have concerto or team server in place?

    No, You do not need to have DTP, which is the new name for Concerto, or its component Team Server.
    From the documentation: Parasoft SOAtest User's Guide > Setup and Testing Fundamentals > Running SOAtest > Testing from the Command Line Interface (soatestcli) > setup Overview

    In Step 1: Configure Preferences

    E-mails: Enter settings that will be used to send emails with reports. This needs to be an existing email account on an email server accessible from the SOAtest test machine.

    So,
    1. Go to Parasoft > preferences > Email and configure your SMTP server information
    2. Go to Parasoft > preferences > Reports > Email Notification
    3. Check "Send reports by email"
    4. Put in the email address you wish to send reports to
    5. Save
    6. (Optional) make a localsettings file with this information in it so you can do this from the command line

    For reference here is mine (I used my company's SMTP server)
    #Exported local settings
    #Mon Jan 04 13:07:35 PST 2016
    report.active_rules=false
    report.associations=false
