Web Audits Checkpoint Operation

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024


The Web Audits Checkpoint operation runs a number of audits against a web page and checks how the page performs. The operation measures audit scores and compares them against the specified threshold values.

The operation uses the Google Lighthouse tool and can perform the following audits:

  • Performance
  • Accessibility
  • Best practices
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Progressive web app (PWA)

When you add the operation to your test, TestComplete displays the Checkpoint dialog where you specify the tested web page, a list of audits for it, and the emulation environment.


  • TestComplete version 14.1.

  • An active license for the Web module.

  • An active license for the Intelligent Quality add-on.

  • The Intelligent Quality add-on and its Web Audits plugin must be enabled in TestComplete.

    You can enable the add-on and plugin during TestComplete installation. If you did not enable them during the installation, you can do this at any moment later via the File > Install Extensions dialog. To do that, select File > Install Extensions from the TestComplete main menu and enable the Intelligent Quality > Intelligent Quality Core and Web Audits plugins in the resulting dialog.

  • Google Chrome must be installed on your computer.
