Results Comparison page

The Result comparison page which is available on a web browser displays the differences, side-by-side, between two test results at checkpoints defined in the test procedure.

Results Comparison

The Results Comparison HTML page, as illustrated in the images below, displays the typical checkpoint output when two test results are compared. There are two tabs including Summary and Comparison Details.


Checks passed
The number of checks that passed in the baseline test, and passed in the recent test.
New fails
The number of checks that passed in the baseline test, but failed in the recent test.
Known fails
The number of checks that failed in the baseline test, and failed in the recent test.
Resolved fails
The number of checks that failed in the baseline test, but passed in the recent test.

Comparison Details tab

Comparing serial run results

If the baseline test result is a set of serial test results, an additional Comparing Multiple Paris of Results dialog box appears to show the differences between pairs of results.

To view a detailed comparison of a pair of results generated by the same test module:
  1. Select the row containing the test module of interest.
  2. Click the View button. The Results Comparison HTML page appears.

    Note: A detailed description of the Result Comparison page is discussed above.
