The Results page provides valuable information on tests at the step level. However, if you want to gain a better understanding of how each step ran, you can use the Investigate Action feature. To view details on any step, click Investigate Action.
To return to the test results, click the back arrow at the top of the page. Note that you can use Investigate Action on any step.
Sometimes, you might find it helpful to see how a match occurred in a step that passed. You can see the following information:
- Attempted to find a match (image)
- Closest match identified (image)
- Results determined
- Action completed
- Delay after action. See How to Set Delays in Automated Tests for more information.
- The Closest match location is shown in the screenshot to the right.
If a visual match was performed using pixel data, detailed information on how close the match was is shown in the “Result determined” section.
If a match was performed using Text Matching, the text is shown in the “Result determined” section. See Text Matching for more information.
When you click Investigate Action on a failed step, you see the same information that displays for a passed test, except that neither visual nor Text Matching was successful.
Information, including the closest visual match and the text used to match (if applicable), is displayed. Note that additional information and actions are available for further troubleshooting.
For failed steps, you can investigate further by comparing the requested and closest matched items.
- Click the Can’t see the difference? link under “Closest match identified” to compare the images.
- Use Swipe or Layered to determine whether the closest match should be used.
- When you’re finished, click Done.
You can update the failed step directly from this screen. First, confirm the closest match is appropriate to use, then click the Accept Replacement button. Note that the test is automatically updated.
If the closest match isn’t acceptable, then open the test, edit the step, and capture the correct element.
