Validation

Validate that the expected outcome occurred

When testing an app, it isn’t enough just to know that the steps ran effectively. In many cases, you will also want to verify that the expected result was produced by the test step. For example, after logging in, you may want to verify that the correct username is now shown in the page header.
The following types of validations are available:

Validation Test Results

When you run your test, each validation step will either pass or fail depending on whether or not the validation criteria were met.

If the validation step passes, the icon in the upper-left of the test step is shown in green, and there is a message in the Properties panel showing that it passed.
