The Baseline history page
The Baseline history page shows all the revisions of a baseline. The first baseline revision is created when the baseline is created, and a new revision is created every time you click on the Save button. Using the controls on this page, you can see the baseline images and annotations of all the steps of the baseline, in all the revisions.
Use the Baseline history page to:
- Compare two baseline revisions
- View the results of the latest run of a baseline
- View the results of the test run which updated a baseline
- Save a baseline revision as the latest revision
- Download baseline images

Page layout of the Baseline history page
The baseline history page consists of a summary panel, a filter and a list of the revisions of the baseline.
The summary panel
The summary panel at the top of the baseline history page displays the application and test names, the branch and the execution environment parameters.
The main panel

- Saved by
