Test log overview

The test log contains a historical record of events that occurred during a test run or a schedule run, as well as the status of each verification point.

About this task

The test log sets a verdict for each run as follows:
  • Pass indicates that all verification points matched or received the expected response and all the test steps successfully completed. For example, a response code verification point is set to PASS when the recorded response code is received during playback. If your test does not contain verification points, PASS means that all primary requests in the test were successful.
  • Fail indicates that at least one verification point did not match the expected response or that the expected response was not received or a Web UI step did not run successfully.
  • Error indicates one of the following results: a primary request was not successfully sent to the server, no response was received from the server for a primary request, or the primary request response was incomplete or could not be parsed.
  • The verdict is set to Inconclusive only if you provide custom code that defines a verdict of Inconclusive.
The verdict is rolled up from the child elements to the test level. For example, if a user group contains 25 virtual users, and five virtual users have failed verdicts, that user group has only one failed verdict, not five.
