Create a Report Using Composition Overview

As of CloudTest 57, reports render the Composition Overview widget using native tables. You can generate a report to view results in HTML or MS Word.

You can create a report by logging into your CloudTest instance and clicking Compositions on the leftmost panel. In your list of Compositions, double-click your Composition and select Create a New Report.

When the Create a New Report dialog will appears, choose between a MS Word or HTML report template. In the Widgets section, expand All Other Widgets > Functional, and then select Compositions Overview.

For more information on reports, please visit the Creating Report Templates and Reports help article.

Result Details – This is the existing Result Details dashboard for that Result without the cover flow and with the left-hand tree starting at the selected element from above. Users can also select in the Result Details tree itself to navigate through test elements.

As already noted, the Result Details widget is also driven by the selected result dot in the Last 10 Results column (shown below).

In this iteration of the Result Details widget, the Navigation Tree contains all Clip Elements (Groups, Chains, etc.) that are children of the Clip in the existing Result Details dashboard.

Note: Errors indicated in the Result Details UI will "bubble up" to the parent item(s) of the failed element. This was true of errors in the prior release only if the Failure Action for the given element was set to "Also fail the parent." An element such as a Composition may succeed, but if any of its children have failed, then the Composition icon in the tree will show a red-x. This change applies to all contexts of the Result Details widget—whether it is in view in the full Result Details Dashboard, here in the Test Suite Dashboard, or in any custom dashboard that includes the Result Details widget. Additionally, bubble-up errors are shown all the way to the composition-level (in the prior release, they were shown only up to the track-level if the Failure Action was set to fail the parent).

Selection in the Compositions Overview will navigate to the corresponding object in Result Details below. Additionally, the Result Details widget in this context shows only the relevant panels (for example, if the selection is a Validation, the relevant Accessor panels are shown).

Accessing the Test Suite Dashboard

The tester can enable to access the Test Suite Dashboard by any one of the following ways:

  • Opening a parent Composition in the Composition Editor, Results tab.
  • Opening the result of a parent Composition from Central (in which case, the Test Suite Dashboard is shown by default)
  • Opening the Build in Jenkins and viewing the test result of a parent Composition
