A product’s optimal quality has always been a priority in software.

Evaluating software components under unexpected or expected conditions is very crucial. Therefore, the testing team plays a significant role in business growth by evaluating the quality of the product.

As a tester, how many times are you lost in reports and dump documents into mailboxes? It happens a lot, and testers often have to start from scratch.

A new unified report in HCL OneTest Server allows you to analyze test results with ease of access: the report consolidates the capabilities of Functional Test and Web UI test reports and supports all test types of HCL OneTest UI. By using an extensive and intuitive design, the Unified Report provides the following capabilities to analyze your test result:

Comprehensive details of the test run allows you to swiftly deep dive into the issues in your test:

— Drill-down from complex compound Tests to specific test iteration details

— View the screenshots captured from the test run in a carousel format

— Live reporting from the test run

— Export test results in an HTML format from the report

Quick View Approach

The first section of the report provides a bird’s eye view of the executed results at one glance. It is ideal for Managers and Testers who want to analyze the health of the assets quickly and communicate the same within their team.

Let’s get into details about how to view result’s report quickly:

— Donut chart  gives a fresh and quick view of the result

— Displays relative proportions of passed or failed tests with color code

— Helps to summarize large data

— Takes less time for analysis

— Anchors to dig down the report for further investigation


Donut Chart


Summary and Resource Tab: With a new unified report, important information is upfront to help users to enhance user’s experience.

A Hierarchical Approach

A hierarchical structure establishes a clear authority for work and dependent test assets. You can view complex assets in terms of  a simple structure.

Visual hierarchy makes user’s flow easy and intuitive to navigate:




Iteration:  You can view each data set in an iteration form.




Result comparison- Actual and expected result comparison for any type of data is simpler than ever. Refer to examples in the following table for various types of data.


Result Comparison


Filter: You can easily dig down the cause of failure by filtering out the status of assets.




Show only differences: You can exclude irrelevant information by using the Show only difference checkbox.

Microscopic Details 

Unified Reports have a much higher range of magnification of data and anyone can detect smaller details of assets at each level of the hierarchy. You can hover over the relevant icon to see microscopic details for an individual asset without even expanding the accordion.

The following details can be seen when you hover over the icons:

— How many test steps failed?

— Which browser was used during execution?

— Which host was associated?

— How long did the test take to execute?




Screenshot Capture: During recording and playback, the screenshots are captured and attached to each test asset. You can easily view all captured screenshots all together with description in the carousel.

Live Report

With the help of the live report feature, you don’t have to wait for completion for execution to see the report, running live report without refresh makes experience seamless.


Live Report



You can export the report at your convenience and share it with your team. Customized view of the report and export is something a long time requested feature for the unified report. Now you can export the report as per your desired format. The export test report is available in an interactive HTML format and pdf format. In a future release, we are supporting other formats as well.




Auto Healing

Auto healing is the most profound feature of our product. The unified report lets you know the status of the report through the “Auto-healing” tag.

At HCL OneTest, we are enhancing the report continuously with every release.
