To compare results of different test runs, switch to the Compare tab in the main security test window.
This tab contains the test run and log panels:
The test run panel includes two lists: Recent Test Runs and Archived Test Runs. By default, the latest test run is on the Recent Test Runs list. To select a number of tests to be saved, use the Number of runs to save drop-down list.
To archive a test run, right-click its name and select Archive Run in the context menu. Set the run as a baseline test, so it will appear on the Archived Test Runs list.
The log panel works in two modes: log and diff. To switch between these modes, use the Show drop-down menu.
The panel also has several buttons:
Button Description Open the log settings dialog.
Note: The log settings are identical to those available on the Transaction Log tab.
Clear the log. Export the log. Expand or collapse the log records.
