Live Analysis Tab

This tab enables you to create and display Live Analysis graphs for test subjects, test set folders, and business component subjects.

To access
  1. On the ALM sidebar, under Testing, select Test Plan, Test Lab, or Business Components.

  2. Select a folder in the module tree, and click the Live Analysis tab.

Important information
  • The Live Analysis graphs that you create are unique for your user login. Each project user can create Live Analysis graphs which will be visible only to that user but will not be visible to other users.

  • Live Analysis graphs represent only nodes that are located directly below the selected folder. They do not include tests, test sets, or business components located at a lower hierarchical level in child folders of the selected folder.

  • The data displayed in the graph reflects the filters that you have set for the module.
