After running a test, the Test Runner will provide a detailed output of the tests you have run. You can also export a report of the test run.

Provar supports exporting test results into CSV or PDF format.

PDF reports have options for the following information:

  • Screenshots
  • Salesforce IDs
  • Summary information
  • Test summary based on Tags added to the tests
  • Logging levels for output messages

To export a report, choose the  icon and configure your options as required:

From this screen you can specify the level of detail you would like in the PDF report, or select the CSV option if you would like to import into Excel.

Some additional configuration options are also available:

  • Show Test Case Path Hierarchy: Configure whether to show or hide the full path hierarchy. (This is defaulted to Show.)
  • Configure Screenshot Size: Configure whether to include screenshot thumbnails or full-size screenshots. (This is defaulted to thumbnails.)

If Show Test Case Path Hierarchy is enabled, the run report will include the test case folders:

This is the default option. If instead it is disabled, the run report will display only the test case names:

If Screenshots (Thumbnails) is ticked, the run report will show the following:

This is the default option. If instead Screenshots (Full) is ticked,  the run report will show larger captures:

Note: If both options are ticked, preference will be given to showing full screenshots.

The default location for the report will be your project folder. To see the report file in the Navigator, right click on the project and choose Refresh.

Customizing your report

This feature allows you to generate customized reports in CSV and PDF.

In order to use this feature, please do the the following:

  1. Create a folder named reports inside the src folder of the test project.
  2. Access the information. The code is listed below for reference.
  3. Add the .java file to the new reports folder.

  • Start time
  • End time
  • Test location path
  • Test case name
  • Test status (successful, skipped, failed)
  • Any environment variables which have been defined

Report location

The name and path where the report should be generated could be changed to a different path inside or outside the test project.

Data writing

Whether the data should be written at the beginning or should be appended to the csv file after each test run.
