Using the Run Results Viewer

This section describes how to view UFT test results in the Run Results Viewer, which is installed automatically with UFT.

Alternates:

  • View the run results in HTML format directly in your browser or in UFT. To select the format in which you want to view the run results, open the Run Sessions pane in the Options dialog box (Tools > Options > General tab > Run Sessions node).
  • Install the Run Results Viewer as a standalone application. This enables you to share the results of your tests with business analysts and developers who do not have UFT installed on their computers.

Run Results Viewer user interface

The Run Results Tree Pane and Search Box displays a hierarchical representation of the run results.

The remaining panes provide details about a selected node or step, the data used for a particular step, optional screen captures or images (UFTGUI testing only), optional system information (UFTGUI testing only), and so on.

For more details, see Run Results Viewer User Interface.

By default, the Run Results Viewer opens automatically at the end of a run session. If you want to change this behavior, in UFT, clear the View results when run session ends check box in the Run Sessions pane of the Options dialog box.
