Filtering and grouping in baseline views


On many pages, Eyes provides the filter and group by tools to enable you to organize the information presented on that page in a way that simplifies looking for and analyzing information.

This article describes the options available with these tool on the branch baseline and test baseline pages:

Filtering the baseline detail or step detail view

In the baseline details view , and the baseline steps view , you can use the filter tool to only display baselines and step that you are interested in.

When you click on the filter tool in the toolbar, the dialog below will be displayed:

This dialog allows you to choose one or more options for one or more criteria. As you select options, the information in the view will be updated to show only steps/baselines where at least one option in every criterion that you specify matches the relevant baseline or step attribute.

You can choose from one or more of the following criteria:

Type some text in the box, and items will only be displayed if the typed text matches one of the following baseline/step attributes:
  • step tag (the text that appears under the thumbnail)
  • app
  • branch
  • test name
  • OS
  • browser
  • viewport

The quick select box allows you to select the following criteria:

Saved by me
Check this checkbox to see only baselines that were saved by the currently logged in user.
Saved by others
Check this checkbox to see only baselines that were saved by someone other than the currently logged in user (including automatically saved tests).
Has issues
Check this checkbox to see only baselines that have issues.

You can access additional criteria by clicking on the More filters... field

The current criteria are displayed at the bottom of the filter dialog. You can remove any criteria by clicking on the icon to the right of the criteria.

At the bottom of the dialog, you can check the "show entire baselines" check-box. This means that information will be shown for all steps in the baseline if at least one step meets the filter criteria.

Using the group by tool in baseline views

In the Baseline details view and the Baseline steps view you can use the control to arrange the baselines (in baseline details view) or steps (in baseline steps view) in hierarchical groups based on one or more of the following criteria :

Steps or baselines have the same application name.
Steps are in the same baseline (baseline steps view only).
Steps or baselines ran in the same browser
Steps or baselines ran on the same operating system name.
Saved by
The baselines or steps of baselines were saved by a specific team member.
The steps represent the same checkpoint (baseline steps view only)
The baselines or steps ran with the same viewport size.

To choose a criterion, click on the and select the attribute you want; you can repeat this a number of times and Eyes will display a hierarchical tree arranged in the order that you requested.

For example, to see what variety of execution environment types your baselines have been tested against you can choose:

You can remove any criterion by clicking on the to the right of that criterion.

You can drag any criterion to the left or to the right in order to change the order of the hierarchy.
