Test Explorer


Test Explorer is a panel that shows information relevant to test automation. You can use Test Explorer and its sub-panels to group tests together, perform debugging, or analyze activity coverage.

A typical Test Explorer panel shows all test cases and workflows within your test automation project. For example, if you have a data-driven test case, it shows up collapsed by default, with the number of variations placed under parentheses (e.g., TestCaseValues (6)).



  • Studio version 2021.10.1+
  • Testing activities v1.4.3+


  • Test Explorer results information is session-based. This means that if you close Studio the information shown in Test Explorer will be cleared.
  • The test cases are listed in Test Explorer based on an execution order.

Working with Test Explorer

To show only relevant information, you can use the Test Explorer toolbar to filter test results based on result state. Additionally, you can use multiple options to run the test cases again.


For example, you can use the contextual menu to add, update, and remove test data on your test cases.


The following table lists the actions that you can take in the Test Explorer panel.
