Change Detection Report Screen

Available for BPT Packaged Apps Kit Users

This screen enables you view results of a business process test or flow run in Change Detection mode and resolve detected changes.

To access

From the Test Lab module: 

  1. In the Test Sets Tree, select the test set containing the test for which you want to open the Change Detection Report screen.

  2. Click the Execution Grid tab.

  3. In the Execution Grid tab, select the test for which you want to open the Change Detection Report screen.

    Note: Business process tests or flows whose last run was in Change Detection mode are indicated with a Y in the Change Detection column. Business process tests and flows that were run in Change Detection mode, and whose changes are unresolved, are indicated with a delta symbol   in the lower right corner of the business process test icon or flow icon. A business process test or flow indicates unresolved changes if it contains any flows or components with unresolved changes. Business process tests and flows whose changes were resolved will have the delta symbol removed from their icon in the Test Plan and Test Lab modules. A business process test or flow will change its status only when all its flows or components have had their changes resolved.

  4. In the Last Run Results pane, in the Status column, click the link for the business process test.

Considerations

Here are some considerations to keep in mind when resolving changes:

  • If a business process test or flow was run in Change Detection mode, but no changes were detected, Update Changes is disabled. You can view the Change Detection Report screen from the Test Lab module only.

  • If a test or flow has changes detected for only one test set, the Change Detection Report screen opens directly. If the test or flow appears in more than one test set, but was already resolved and rerun from one test set, the last results open.

  • It is not necessary to resolve detected changes in every component in the Change Detection Report at one time. You can open a saved report and update it multiple times. In a reopened report, components in which one or more changes were previously resolved are shown as read-only. However, the components in which changes were not resolved are active, and resolution options are displayed for selection.

  • Assuming no other user has checked out the component, a component in a version controlled project is checked out when a resolution option for a detected change in the component is executed in the Change Detection Report screen. The component is checked in again when the Change Detection Report screen is saved.

  • Components in the Change Detection Report may be displayed as read-only for several reasons. For example:

    • Changes to the component were already resolved.

    • The component is duplicated in the flow or business process test, and changes in the duplicate were resolved.

    • The component is checked out.

    • The component was removed from the flow or business process test.

    • The component was changed outside of the Change Detection Report (for example, in UFT One).

    • A new report was run and the component is not up to date.

Viewing the Report

The main parts of this report show you: 

Area Desription
Header

General information about the business process test or flow that ran such as its name, owner, run date, duration, run status, and more.

If changes were detected, the run status indicates "changes detected."

 

Tree

A tree of all the components learned.

Select one that indicates it has changes.

Changes Tab that lists changed objects.
Used by Tab that lists the business process test or flow that has changes.
Screenshot Tab that shows snapshots of the changes.

When finished viewing and resolving, click Save to close the report.
