Manage test results

After you analyze your test, you might want to mark it for further analysis. To do this, you have a few options:

  • Save the test, keeping it beyond normal data retention periods.
  • Make notes on the test, preserving contextual details.
  • Export it to another format, so you can query it with the program of your choice.
  • Delete irrelevant tests, de-cluttering your UI.

To do any of these actions, use the vertical-dots icon to open the Test Result menu.

Save a test result

Besides saving a test as a baseline, you can also save a test to persist its data.

Each plan can save some number of test results indefinitely. Your plan determines how many tests you can save. To save a test run, follow these steps:

  1. Use the three-dot icon in the top-right corner of your test run.
  2. Select Save test result.

After you save a test, your test will be added to one of the available slots.

If you need to open up a slot for a new test to save, you can remove an old test. To remove a test, follow these steps:

  1. On the side menu, head to Manage > Saved tests.
  2. Select the test to unsave.
  3. Select the three-dot icon, then Remove safe status.

Unlike setting a baseline, saved tests can have more than one test run.
