Understand what happens during the test run

After a test is run, you can view the test results on the Editor screen. Overall test run information is shown as well as detailed information about each step that was run.

Viewing Overall Test Results

Overall run data is shown at the top of the screen including whether the test passed or failed, the test run duration, run configuration information, and the test’s base URL. In addition, the colored icons at the top of each step indicate whether or not that action was successful.

If a test included visual validations, see Visual Validation Test Results.

Viewing Step Results

During the test run, Testim updates each step with its results, including it's status (passed, of failed), a detailed error message if it failed, how long did it take, and a screenshot of the screen at that specific state. The same thing happens both when you run your test locally in your browser, and when you run it in your CI using the CLI tool.

You can open view the result of each step by double-click it:

Or by open the Properties panel when the step is selected:

In order to see the screenshot of the step, your can either click on the screenshot icon on the step:

Or the screenshot icon when the step is opened:

Both will open the Screenshot tab of the Step Details screen, with the original step screenshot. In order to view the screenshot of the actual result, click on the "Result" button at the top:

A very useful view is the "Side by Side" view, where you can see both the original expected screenshot, and the actual result screenshot:

If a test included visual validations, see Visual Validation Test Results.
In order to view Network Logs for this step, click on the Network Logs tab.



By default, Testim retains the test results for 30 days.
Contact us to retain the data for a longer period (- up to 2 years retention for premier customers).
