Rules Overview

Relevant for Power Mode only

During a test run with mirroring, you may want to periodically compare the display of your primary machine with those of your secondary machines. When you compare the displays, Sprinter detects differences between the displays.

Once you resolve the difference between the displays, you may want Sprinter to ignore similar differences in the future.

When you create a rule, you teach Sprinter to ignore certain types of differences during a compare operation.

Rules are associated with a specific application, and are available for all tests that are configured to use that application. You can also create rules that apply to all your Sprinter tests, regardless of their configured application.

When you create a rule in the Differences Viewer, Sprinter automatically re-compares the secondary machine with the primary machine, to determine if the difference is no longer detected.
