Unified reports

Unified reports in Rational® Functional Tester provide a detailed overview of the test results. Unified reports also provide an extensive user interface that you can use to analyze or apply filters on the test results.

You can generate unified reports for all Functional and Web UI tests.

When you play back a Functional test script, the report is displayed in the browser that you configure in Preferences of Rational® Functional Tester. You can view the generated results as a unified report, which is the default option when you play back Functional test scripts. For information about how to change the result type for Functional test scripts, refer to the related links.

For Web UI tests, Compound tests, and AFT Suites, you can generate the unified reports from the Results folder. For information about how to generate the unified report for Web UI tests, Compound tests, and AFT suites, refer to the related links.
Note: If the Results folder is not available in the project, the unified report is stored in the Web UI test, Compound test, or AFT Suites folder.

The Details pane of the unified report displays test details, test steps, and different iterations of each test run. The following table lists the details that are displayed for each test type:

Test type The Details pane displays ...
Functional test Test details and test steps.
Web UI test Test details and test steps.
AFT suite Web UI tests, Functional test scripts, and Compound tests that are available.
Compound test Web UI tests, and Functional test scripts that are available.

When you play back SAP GUI tests from the Web UI perspective, the unified report is also displayed in the browser apart from the Statistical Report, and UI report.

You can perform the following actions on the unified report:
  • Expand a test by using the icon in the Details pane, to view all the passed and failed steps for each test. You can select each test step to view the details. Test steps that fail with an exception are highlighted.

  • Click to navigate from the unified report to the workbench and view a specific test or test step.
    Note: For a Web UI test, the test step is highlighted in the workbench. But for a Functional test script, the line number of the test script is highlighted in the workbench.
  • Click Click this icon to expand the pane that displays the test steps in the test steps pane to expand and view the complete details of test steps that have a truncated description.

Note: The unified report that is generated after you enable the remote access either in the secure or non-secure mode, which can be enabled by clicking Windows > Preferences > Test > Performance Test Reports > Web Reports > Allow remote access from a web browser checkboxes, does not display contents in the browser page.

To resolve this, you must first restart the workbench and then play back tests, after you enable the remote access. The unified report gets generated successfully.
