Performing a test run

Use an interactive flowchart in the Edit mode to perform a test run.

About this task

Interactive flowcharts test runs function differently than batch flowchart test runs. You cannot pause and restart or stop an interactive flowchart test run.


  1. Open an interactive flowchart for editing (click Edit in the flowchart toolbar).
  2. Click Run in the flowchart toolbar, and select Test run flowchart.

    The design environment uses the runtime environment defined in the serverGroup configuration property with all the data in the test run data source to test the interactive flowchart.

    A test run status dialog opens.

  3. When the test run completes, click View results to view the results.


The test run results consist of four tables:

  • Test run segment data. Displays the audience ID and the assigned segment.
  • Test run attribute data. Displays all the data in the profile table for each audience ID.
  • Test run cell counts. Displays the number of members in each cell.
  • Test run errors. Displays any errors, if they occurred, in the test run.

Similar to batch flowcharts, the test run also populates the number of members in each cell output by the process. Since processes without successors do not output cells to another process, the numbers are not populated. For example, create a simple flowchart, Interaction > Decision > PopulateSeg. After a test run, the Interaction process displays the number of members in its output cell below the blue checkmark indicating the process ran successfully. This number should be the same as the Test run size. The Decision process displays the number of members in each cell. If the Decision process creates three cells, there will be three numbers, separated by semicolons (;), for example 29;11;10. Because the PopulateSeg process does not output cells to another process, it does not display any members.
