Dashboards#

Dashboard is a collection of widgets with main analytical info on your test run results.

Widgets are graphical control elements that analyze your automation test results, provide detailed test execution statistics and other important data. Widgets can be added to a dashboard from templates, allowing you to customize the widgets with the help of different filters (e.g. you can add a widget with pass rate for Chrome browser only based on statistics for 30 days).

Dashboard types#

There are 2 types of dashboards in Zebrunner:

System (default) dashboards
System dashboards are automatically added to each project, contain the basic widgets with info on your test project status and cannot be deleted or edited. General dashboard is available from the Dashboards grid, while Personal and Failure analysis dashboards can be accesses through the General one.
User-defined (custom) dashboards
Custom dashboards can be created manually and filled in with a set of widgets that can be configured from templates with multiple filters.

Widget types#

There are 3 main types of widgets illustrating different aspects of testing: automation results, root cause analysis and engineering performance widgets.

Automation results widgets

Automation results widgets display the pass rate trends for a selected period, e.g. how many passed, failed, skipped, aborted tests or tests with known issues were detected by the system.

Automation results widgets

Root cause analysis widgets

Root cause analysis provide quick access to identified failures grouped by reason and known issues if there were any.

Failure attributes like the number of failures with the same reason, ‘Since’ date (when the failure appeared the first time) and ‘Repro’ date (when the last failure was discovered) help to prioritize the bugs and focus on the ones that need most of the tester’s attention.

Root cause analysis widgets

Engineering performance widgets

Engineering performance widgets allow project managers to track the project ROI, and personal statistics per each user (e.g. how many bugs were detected).
