When TestComplete generates the Summary report

Report Contents

  • The name of the testing session (it can be the project suite name, or the project name, or the name of an individual test item, or the name of a script routine or keyword test, or a tag, or a tag expression).

  • The number of:

    • Run test cases.
    • Passed test cases.
    • Failed test cases.
    • Test cases executed with warnings.
    • Rerun test cases.
    • Unexecuted test cases (if any). Test cases the execution of which was not started because the project run was stopped upon an error.

    And, a chart that shows a ratio among these tests.

  • The test run duration.

  • A chart that shows the statistics of the passed and failed tests and of the tests executed with warnings.

  • The General section that shows the start time and end time of the test run. It also shows the name of the computer where the test was run and the name of the user account under which the test was run.

  • A list of test cases executed during the test run. These can be:

    • The test cases specified in the Execution Plan editor of each executed project.

      If a test case is executed several times during the test run (that is, the Count column of the Execution Plan editor specifies a number other than 1 for this item), the summary report takes into account all the iterations.

    • The test cases you specify manually in scripts by using the aqTestCase.Begin method.

    • BDD feature files.

    • BDD scenarios (regardless of whether they are marked as test cases or not).

    • Tests that were selected to run by their tags.

    The report lists the test cases in the order of their execution. It ignores any parent-child relations between the test cases (if any).

    For each item, the report shows the following information:

    Column Name Description
    Test Case The name of the test case. It can be:
    • The name specified in the Name column of the Execution Plan editor.
    • The name specified by the aqTestCase.Begin method.
    • The name of the test as it is specified in the Code editor (for scripts) or in the Project Explorer (for keyword tests). (Only when running tests that match a tag or a tag expression.)
    • The name you specify by assigning a tag in a special format to your test. (Only when running tests that match a tag or a tag expression.)
    Project The name of the project to which the test belongs.
    Start Time The time when the test case execution started.
    Duration The time it took to execute the test.

    To filter the test cases by their status, click the appropriate status in the list header.

    To jump to the detailed test log quickly, click the test name. If there were errors during the test case execution, it will jump to the first error. Otherwise, it will jump to the beginning of the test case.

  • If there are errors in tests that are not included in the Summary report (they are not marked as test cases), the report will show a notification about it. You can click it to quickly open the detailed test log to view information on the occurred errors.
