Customize Test Result View


After executing a test a default view is shown which shows a variety of information about the test. Several other system views are available as well.

While this is a useful starting place, Testable supports deep customization to create your own results view that can be saved for later use.

Widget Location

The widgets can be reordered by clicking and dragging on the header and releasing in the newly desired location. The top level panels (logging, summary, agents map, and regional results) are reordered separately from the regional result ones (charts, resources grid, overview).

Drag Widget

Add/Remove Widget

Each widget can be removed by clicking on the red 'x' in the upper right. To add a widget click on the drop down menu in the upper right and select the type of widget to add. Note that the logging, agent map, summary, and regional results can only be displayed once, so if it is already visible you will not be able to add it again.

View Menu

Add/Customize a Chart

Make sure the Regional Results are visible to add a chart (Show Regional Results in the action menu). Then select the Add Chart action.

There are currently three types of charts:

  1. Line: Time is plotted on the x-axis and whichever metrics are selected on the y-axis.
  2. Histogram: A histogram which visualizes the count per bucket using a donut chart.
  3. Metered: For metered metrics like test runner memory, CPU, and bandwidth. Shows peak usage during test, a chart of usage by interval, and a breakdown of usage by test runner instance.

Next select the metrics to display and whether or not they should be graphed by default in the chart or just shown across the top of the widget. Note that you can click on a metric across the top to toggle it on/off in the chart.

Click the Add Chart button to add it to the view.

Click the configure icon on any chart widget to customize its name and metrics.

Add Chart

New charts are always added at the top of the regional results tabs.

Images Widget

To add the Images widget select the Add Images action in the dropdown menu in the upper right. This will display any screenshots captured during your test with the most recent image first. As a reminder browser based tools like Selenium, Phantomjs, and Slimerjs all support capturing screenshots.


Customize Summary

The summary widget provides a quick high level analysis of this test execution and how it compares to other recent executions of the same configuration. You can customize which metrics are part of this analysis and what percentage change thresholds are considered an improvement, consistent, concerning, or a failure. Note that the percentage change is relative to that metric across a weighted average of the last 10 (if that many exist) test executions.

Click the configure icon on the Summary panel to customize.

Any column with the 'Show in dashboard' checkbox will show up on the home page and the execution history if this view is made the default one.

Configure Summary

Customize By Resources Grid

Click the configure icon on the Results Grid panel to customize which metrics are displayed in the grid.

View Actions

If any changes have been made to the view a ** * ** appears at the top of the view. Use the view menu to manage your view.

Open View

Open View

Save/Save As View

Save any customizations to this view or as a new view. Note that when you customize the default view it can only be saved as a new view.

Save View

Rename View

Give the view a different name. Not supported for the default view.

Delete View

Delete the view. Not supported for system views.

Make Default View

Mark this view as the default one for this test configuration, test case, and/or account. Making a view the default for a test configuration overrides the default view for the test case which override the default view for the account. The view will load by default when opening the results page. The default view configuration is also used on other pages as follows:

  1. Testable Dashboard: In the Summary widget configuration, any metric that has the 'Show in dashboard' checkbox checked is displayed.
  2. Test Configuration Grid: On the Test Case landing page, in the Test Configurations grid, any metric that has the 'Show in dashboard' checkbox checked is displayed.
  3. Test Execution History: Click on the name of a Test Configuration. The page has a grid showing the test execution history. The columns displayed are the ones that have the 'Show in dashboard' checkbox checked in the Summary configuration.
