Test Sets

Provides information on Test Sets and their execution

A test set contains any number of test cases and allows the user to classify test cases into user defined categories. Test sets are also used as a starting point to execute test cases.

The Test Sets overview screen lists all test tests registered for the selected project. For every test set you see

  • Name

  • Last Execution date and time

  • The software version that was used for the last execution

  • The pass rate of all included test cases

Selecting a test set on the overview brings to the Test Set screen:

Like the test case screen, the test set screen is divided into four major areas:

Test Set

The test set area shows you the identifier, the name and the description of the selected test set.

Available Operations




Mark as favorite

Click on the asterisk will toggle if the test set is listed in the favorites section of the projects screen.

Enable notifications

Opens a menu that allows you to select the event triggers you want to receive a notification for.

Edit test set information

Opens a dialog to modify the identifier, name or description of the test set.

Archive test set

Marks the test set as archived. An archived test set can be restored from the archived test sets overview.

Restore archived test case

Marks the test set as active.

Note: This operation is only visible on archived test sets.

Delete test set

Deletes the test set. This action is not reversible. If you mistakenly deleted a test case please contact support.


There are multiple events for a test case that get triggered either by a user action or by the system. You can register for those events to get notified.



Execution completed

An execution run was completed and results are available

Test Report failed or aborted

A test report is finished with the result FAILED or ABORTED


The Edit Test Set dialog allows you to change the name and description of a test set.


Archived test sets are not listed in the default Test Set Overview screen. You need to click on the "Archive" tab on the Test Set Overview screen to see all archived test sets.

Test Cases

The test cases lists all test cases that are currently included in this set. In addition it allows you to add or remove test cases to and from the selected test set.

The overview lists the following attributes of any included test case:

Add/Remove test cases

By clicking on the "MANAGE TEST CASES" button the "Included Test Cases in Test Set" dialog is shown.

This dialog shows you all test cases in the current project. If checked, a test case is included in the current test set, if not checked a test case is not included in the current test set.

By clicking on a column label, the column will be sorted. By clicking on the filter icon the filter dialog will be shown, which allows to search for specific test sets

Add by test set

An alternative way to included test cases in a test set is by copying existing test sets. By clicking on the "ADD BY TEST SET" button you can select an existing test set which is copied.

Click on the "SAVE" button to copy a selected test set into the current test set.

Important: The test set is copied, not referenced. Changing the original test set after you have copied it, does not impact the new test set.

Result History

The result history provides you a quick overview of the number of executed test cases included in this test set per software version. This gives you a good indication if your test coverage is increasing, decreasing or in a steady state.

In addition the history area distinguishes between passed, failed, canceled and aborted test sets. This allows you to see the quality of a specific software version.




Shows individual bar graphs of the number of test cases per software version and the result state.


You can filter the result history by test environment, date range or tags that you have used for executions.

To reset the filter, clear all fields and click on the "FILTER" button.


The executions area gives you an overview of all executions of this test set. For every test set you see

  • Completion time - the time the last result of the last test report was received

  • Software version with which the execution was run

  • Test environment on which the execution was run

  • User who requested the execution

  • All tags used for the execution

  • Overall result of all test reports created by this execution

By clicking on an individual execution result a new tab is opened. This tab lists all test cases that where executed with the specification execution.

For every included test case the following details are shown

  • Test case identifier

  • Test case name

  • Revision - test plan revision

  • Execution No - test report revision

  • Test report status

  • Test report result

  • Time the test report was finished

  • Execution time

Execute a test set

A test set can be executed by clicking on the "EXECUTE" button, which opens the "Execute Test Set" dialog.

The execute test set dialog allows you to select a test environment on which the Subject Under Test should run, as well as a software version that you want to run the tests against.

For easier identification you can define freely chosen tags for the execution.

Control tags

The TestResults.io platform supports some predefined control tags. Do not use any of the following reserved tags until asked for by the TestResults.io support or your vendor:

  • -sim:

  • -debug:

  • -livetrack

Please contact support for additional information on these specific control tags.

An execution is started by clicking on the "EXECUTE" button.
