Comparing results with baseline

Side-by-side comparison can be made between a test result and a baseline result. Both results must be for the same test module or test module variation.

Ensure that you meet the following requirements before comparing test results to a baseline:
  • TestArchitect is running and connected to the repository that contains the baseline results.
  • You have set the baseline results, and the baseline results are stored in the repository.
    Tip: The results can be stored in the repository either manually or automatically.
  • The test results you want to compare and the baseline results are generated from the same test module or the same test module variation.
Choose one of the following two methods to compare the test results against the baseline results:
The Result Comparison dialog box appears to show the differences at checkpoints in the test results. See Results Comparison dialog boxes for an explanation of the Results Comparison dialog box.
Note:
  • Setting the baseline for the test module enables the Baseline comparison section in the Summary tab for all subsequent test runs of the same test module.
  • If the test result is from a set of serial test results, the Comparing Multiple Pairs of Results dialog box appears. See Comparing serial run results for an explanation of the Comparing Multiple Pairs of Results dialog box.
