Explore the Results from Quick Test Execution

The Quick Run results are generated after a Quick test execution. This result is a temporary stored result and its usage is recommended while designing the automated tests and when troubleshooting failures. The current Quick Run result is deleted when a new Quick execution is triggered or project is reloaded.

Generate the Quick Execution Log

Record and execute a test. The status of the generated Quick Run result is displayed in the upper ribbon in the Steps Pane. You can see the overall result - passed in green or failed in red. You can access the execution log for this quick run through the View Log button, or use the Clear result option to delete the result from this execution.

Quick Run results

For each action step, which was successfully passed, you can see images of the page state at the time of recording the test, and the time of execution. when troubleshooting a failing test, these screenshots are very useful to identify, if an action is reported successful, but it turns out during the test run it wasn't actually performed as expected.

  • description of the executed steps,
  • if the test is data driven, there is reference for the data source,

Successful Test Run with Warnings

The test result is marked as successful as all elements are located and all actions are performed, but if Test Studio fails to locate any element by its primary find expression, this is logged as message in the execution for your convenience.

Similar warning is logged, if the primary element identification is set to Search By Image First, but the element is found using the recorded find expression instead.

The warning is also listed in the Steps Result Details section and the step is marked with an exclamation mark icon.
