Test results and reports overview

Rational® Test Automation Server is a single location for hosting the results and reports of all tests run on different desktop clients and for tests run from the server.

Test results list


Example of a test results list

When you expand the results, the results details and reports cards are displayed.

Results, reports and logs are generated for tests run from Rational® Test Automation Server, or from desktop clients such as Rational® Performance Tester, Rational® Functional Tester, or Rational® Integration Tester.

You must have configured the desktop clients to publish reports of tests that are run from the desktop client to the Rational® Test Automation Server. For more information about the publishing procedure, refer to the links at the end of this page.

Test result details

By default, you can view the following details about the test assets used in the test run in the Details card:

  • The status of the test results, the date and time it was executed and completed.
  • The details about the Git repository that contains the test assets.
  • The execution location that uses the test asset for a test run.
    Note: The execution location can be the default cluster or the location that you indicate to override a docker host or the agent location when you execute a test. For more information about test configuration, see the link at the end of this page.
  • The Resource Monitoring labels (override) used in a performance schedule to control Resource Monitoring sources. For more information about controlling Resource Monitoring sources, see the link at the end of this page.

You can configure the information displayed in the Details card and the Results columns from the View Settings window. You access this window by clicking the Settings icon Settings icon.

Depending on the attribute you cleared in the View Settings window, the Details card displays additional information about the test results.

The selected attributes are displayed in columns of the Result view.

Reports

The Reports card contains the links to the test reports and the logs that are displayed in a web browser.

Test logs are delivered in a Jaeger format by default for executed compound tests and schedules. You can still set the -history testlog Program Argument to re-enable the traditional test log format when you run the tests.

The reports are generated for Compound Tests, Schedules, and Test Suites. They can be run from a desktop client or from Rational® Test Automation Server. The following table lists the links to help pages for each type of report.
