How to: View Test Runs Started Using a Test Agent Controller

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

You can start a test run for automated tests using a test agent controller and then view the status of those runs. For more information, see How to: Run a Test Using Test Agent Controllers and Test Agents.

To view test runs started using a test agent controller, use the Test Run window. The Test Run window has the following columns, which correspond to the test run functions:

Test Run Name

Lists Active Runs, Queued Runs, and Completed Runs. You can expand each of these groupings.


Lists the state of the test run:

  • In Progress

  • Idle

  • Passed


Lists the user who submitted the run.

Symbols are used in the Test Run window to indicate the status of a run. Depending on the state, you can resume, pause, stop, or delete a run.

Note Note

Depending on the results, you might want to save the results of a run. To save the results, you must first export them. For more information, see How to: Export Test Results.
