How to read test run results
Depending on the type of testing you run you get different data in the results.
In the structure tree, you can see all tested objects with basic summary about included test cases tested. How many of them passed, failed, or were not run because of an error. Click the category of test cases, Passed, Failed, or Not run - error to filter the results. Expand objects for which you want to check the detailed results or click Expand all and then View details next to the test case of interest.
|Test request||Test request of the test run.|
|Expected||This is the condition for which you run the test.|
|Actual||This is the actual value Test Center got from running the test for the set test request.|
|Result||There are two possible test run results:|
- Fail. It’s when the Expected and Actual values differ. In such case, the tested changes need to be thoroughly checked as they don’t behave as they should and may cause problems when activated on the production environment.
- Pass. It’s when the Expected and Actual values are the same. It means that the tested changes behave in expected manner and are safe to implement on the production environment.
