Generating test reports

Once execution histories have been generated from executing test suites, you can generate a test report to summarize the test execution results. The test reports aggregate and summarize numerous test executions over a period of time. The test reports present test executions in tables and charts so users can easily locate trends and effectually analyze.

The following test report types are provided:

Report Description
Test Pass Report1 Report with only the most recent execution results for each selected test within a specified period of time.
Time Frame Historic1 Report with all of the execution results for each selected test within a specified period of time.

[1] Adobe's Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) browser plug-in is required.

  1. Select Window > Preferences... from the file menu.
  2. Select the Test > Test Reports > Fonts preference page.
