Using the Eggplant Manager Dashboard

The Eggplant Manager dashboard provides an overview of how your tests are doing. You can investigate any issues that are cropping up and analyze results over time through the information presented here.

Navigate to the Eggplant Manager dashboard by clicking Dashboard in the main menu bar of Eggplant Manager. The Eggplant Manager dashboard is typically the first screen you see when you log in to Eggplant Manager.

Note: You can change this first screen by going to Account > Account Settings and choosing a different Default View under Preferences.)

If you added a custom report to the dashboard using dashboard modification tools, it might only show data collected before opening the dashboard. Click a report's Refresh button to update the data for that report.

Components of the Eggplant Manager Dashboard

The Eggplant Manager Dashboard comprises the following sections:

Note: If you are also licensed for Eggplant Automation Cloud, your Active and Upcoming Reservations appear above the Test Case Times Table. For information about Eggplant Automation Cloud reservations, see Making Reservations through Eggplant Automation Cloud.

Test Case Times Table

The top section of the Eggplant Manager dashboard displays a graph showing the durations of recent tests. You can also view the results of sections of a test, nestled between BeginTestCase and EndTestCase commands. Select the Test and specify the Number of Runs you want to chart. You can choose whether or not to Include Failures in the graph.

High Level Test Health Table

This section of the Eggplant Manager dashboard provides a quick visual analysis of the most recent run history for all tests in Eggplant Manager. You can sort these results by Test Group, as well.

The High Level Test Health table on the Eggplant Manager Dashboard

The High Level Test Health Table provides the following information:

  • Last Run: This column shows a circle indicating the status of the most recent test run. Statuses include:

    = Success.

    = The test ran successfully but is considered unstable because it generated warning messages.

    = Failure.

    = The test is currently running.

    ePM_Purple_Status.png = The test did not run correctly because an error was encountered.

    ePM_Grey_Status.png = There is no information for this test (because the test was created but has not yet been run).

  • Trend: This column uses weather icons to provide a general overview of the test's recent performance. The trend status is determined by the success and failure rate for that test over the previous five runs.

    ePM_Sun_Status.png = No failures for the past five runs.

    ePM_PartlyCloudy_Status.png = One failure in the past five runs.

    ePM_MoreCloudy_Status.png = Two failures in the past five runs.

    ePM_PartCloudandRain_Status.png = Three failures in the past five runs.

    ePM_Rainy_Status.png = Four failures in the past five runs.

    ePM_StormyLightning_Status.png = All five most recent runs were failures.

    ePM_NoInfo_Status.png = No information is available for this test (because the test was created but has not yet been run).

  • Test: This column shows the name of the test.

  • Last Success: This column shows the date and time of the last successful test run.

  • Last Failure: This column shows the date and time of the last failed test run.

  • Last Duration: This column shows the duration of the last test run.

You can click on a test (anywhere in the line for the test) to go to that test's specific page where you can see more detailed information as well as make any changes to the test.

Test Run Instance Pass/Fail

The Test Run Instance Pass/Fail section generates a graph of a test's success and failure rate over time. By default, this chart shows the most recent test that has run. However, you can use the fields at the top of the chart to view whichever test you want as well as change the time frame that the chart displays.

The Test Run Instances Pass/Fail graph shows success and failure rate of tests over time

After you select new options in the Test, From, or To fields, click Apply to show the new data on the chart.

Recent Test Runs

The Recent Test Runs section lists all of the most recent test runs. The table includes the run instance number, name of the test, number of instances run, start time for the run, duration of the test run, and result status.

The Recent Test Runs section shows statuses and other information for all recent test runs

To see the full results for a specific test run, select the test in question and click Go to Results.

For information about the different possible test run statuses, see Eggplant Manager Result Status Types.

Recent Log Errors

This section lists the most recent test runs that encountered errors. These test runs are called out separately because they often demand specific attention.

The Recent Log Errors section shows recent tests that have encountered problems

Note that you can sort the table by clicking any of the column headings.

Test Run Instance Average Duration

The Test Run Instance Average Duration section generates a graph showing the average duration of an instance of the test over time. Note that this graph measures instances; therefore, if you run multiple instances within a test, you'll get a timing for each instance. However, the numbers plotted are an average of all data for that test.

By default, this graph shows the most recent test that has run. However, you can use the fields at the top of the chart to view whichever test you want as well as change the time frame that the chart displays. Select the Include Failures? checkbox if you want the data to reflect timings for failed tests as well (not selected by default).

The Test Run Instance Average Duration chart shows average duration of instances over time

When you've selected the options you want, click Apply to see them plotted on the chart.
