Test Results

When you start executing a test set, Test Manager goes through the following process:

  1. A test execution container with the same name as its corresponding test set is created.
  2. For each test case from the executed test set an empty test result entry called test case log is added.
  3. Test Manager then iterates through the test case logs from the test execution, executing all the corresponding test cases. The results are set on each test case log along with all the log information.

The chart below illustrates the process of executing a test set in Test Manager.



As a consequence, after a test set has been executed, any changes to the test set or its associated test cases do not affect the results from previous executions. Even when a test set is deleted, all the test executions remain unchanged.

Who can see projects

All user roles can see test results.

For more information see User and Group Access Management.

Analyze Test Results

To view test executions, open Test Results in Test Manager. The execution of each test is listed as a test execution entry. To understand how the test executions work behind the scenes, see Test Results.



By analyzing your test execution, you can take the following actions:

  • Find test results that have been executed manually or automatically through Orchestrator.
  • Check the progress on running test executions.
  • Open the test set that have been executed.
  • Examine logs and attachments.
  • Create defects in your defect management system directly from Test Manager, if you have an Application Lifecycle Management tool integration. For more information, see ALM Tool Integration.

By default, the test executions are sorted based on the date on which the execution was finished. Currently running and pending executions are placed at the top.

You can identify the status through the color codes assigned to each test execution, as follows.:

  • Green:- Test cases that passed.
  • Red: Test cases that failed.
  • Grey: Test cases without a definitive results, such as test cases that have not been executed yet but are part of a test set that is currently being executed.

Results from automated tests

The results from automated test executions are imported from Orchestrator automatically. To have your automated tests imported to Test Manager, you need to meet the following conditions:

  • Integrate Test Manager with Orchestrator.
  • The automated test needs to be part of a test set on your Test Manager project. For more information, see Automated Tests.

    Note: If a Test Execution from Orchestrator holds results for test cases from several projects in Test Manager, the test execution is split in Test Manager. The results appear in the projects where the test cases are.

Working with test execution results

To get detailed results from a test execution, go to Test Results and click an entry to open the detailed view. A typical test execution detailed view shows information on when the executions started, duration, and execution logs.

You can use the Reporting Date filter to set a single date for all the results from the test execution. This is useful when you run tests overnight, where some test cases are executed before and after midnight. Otherwise, the results are going to be split between different dates in the reports.

In the Results section you can examine all the test cases that were executed within the test set. You can take actions for each test case. For more info, see Execution log.

You can also open the executed test set by right-clicking an entry in the Test Sets page and selecting Open Test Set, or directly within the test execution.



Execution log

As part of test reporting, execution logs hold information such as execution details (e.g., data variation and screenshots), failed and passed assertions, and a detailed log of execution events.

To open a test case log, go to Test Results, open a test execution and then click a test case Key.



In the following table, you can view the type of information that is collected during test case execution.

Test execution reporting

Description

Assertions

View failed or passed assertions (e.g.,Verify expression activity), and associated screenshots if any were taken during test case execution.

To make sure that Orchestrator takes screenshots during executions, visit the following resources:
  • Default roles in Orchestrator - to check if the default roles have the Test Case Execution Artifacts permission assigned. In case the default roles don't have this permission, then you can create a custom role with this permission.
  • Managing roles in Orchestrator - to learn how to create, edit, or import a role in Orchestrator.

Logs

View INFO level logs as part of the RobotLogs, with information about processes, execution robot, and event logs, including failures.

Select the icon to go to the Logs tab of the selected test case, for a detailed description of the failure.

Execution details

View argument details such as input and output values, as well as execution and robot details (e.g., project, machine, robot).

Affected requirements

View the requirements that are assigned to the test case that has been executed. You can use this tab to go directly to the affected requirement.

Attachments
View:
  • the attachments uploaded using the Attach Document activity.
  • the attachments of a test case result, that is linked from Orchestrator.

Viewing activity coverage

Note: Activity coverage calculation is available only for test sets created in Orchestrator that have coverage calculation enabled. To learn how to enable coverage calculation, see Create test sets in Orchestrator.

Prerequisites: The test cases that you published to Orchestrator, link them to Test Manager as well. Because to display activity coverage in Test Manager, the test cases must be linked to both Orchestrator and Test Manager.

  1. Select Enable coverage calculation for a test set when you create or edit it in Orchestrator.
  2. Open Test Manager and link the test set from Orchestrator.
  3. Open the test set, select More Options docs image and then Execute Automated.

    Activity coverage is available only for automated test executions.

  4. Go to Test Results and open the test set you executed.
  5. Go to the Activity Coverage tab and investigate the information on the activities that were covered during the test execution.


Create defects from results

You can create defect reports including the execution log to your external defect management system, if you already have it integrated with Test Manager. For more information, see ALM Tool Integration.

To create a defect out of an execution log, you need to open a test case log, click Tasks, and then select Create Defect. After the defect has been created, a link is available in the execution log, so you can access the integrated external tool.

Defect Synchronization

You can synchronize execution results with external tools, as part of the Application Lifecycle Management tool integration. Information that is gathered during execution, such as results, logs, timestamps, and other details is synchronized with the tool that you have integrated with Test Manager.

Please note that at the moment there can be only one connection which is enabled for defect synchronization overall per project.

Note:

Who can synchronize defects

All user roles aside from Read-only can synchronize defects.

For more information see User and Group Access Management.

Create Defect

You can create defects when you access test case logs in the Test Results page.

  1. Navigate to Test Results
  2. Open a test result and the click the test case key to open the logs.
  3. Click Tasks and select Create Defect.


The defect is created and synchronized with your external tool. You can open the defect directly in the tool (e.g., Atlassian Jira) by navigating to the test execution result that has a synchronized defect.



Unlink Defect

When you unlink defects from an external tool, the entry created in the tool remains unchanged. In Test Manager, the test execution result will not be linked with an external tool.

  1. Navigate to Test Results
  2. Open a test result and then click Tasks
  3. Select Unlink Defect.
