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 another 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.

Here is a list of the tasks that you can do on this page; click on the link to read the relevant article.

  1. Compare two baseline revisions
  2. View the results of the latest run of a baseline
  3. View the results of the test run which updated a baseline
  4. Save a revision as the latest revision

Navigating to the baseline history page

The baseline history page shows all the revisions of a baseline. You navigate to this page from a page that shows baseline information, namely:

  • Branch baselines in the baseline details view.
  • Test baselines in the baseline details view.

In both cases, navigate to the baseline history page by using the row menu Show history option on the baseline whose history you want to see, for example on the test baselines page:

Page layout

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

The main panel is laid out as a table with a row for each revision and columns with the following information about each revision:

Saved
The date and time when the revision was saved.
Saved by
The name of the team member that saved the baseline (blank for the first revision if it was created autocratically).
Revision
A unique number that represents this specific revision of this baseline. If you put the cursor over this number, you will see an icon. Clicking the icon will copy the revision number into the copy/paste buffer. This can be used later to compare a different revision to this revision. See Copying baselines between branches.
Test runs
The number of runs that were made using this baseline as a reference (not including the first run, where it was created).
This menu appears when you hover the cursor over any row. It provides options to:
  1. Compare two baseline revisions
  2. Save a revision as the latest revision
  3. View the results of the test run which updated a baseline
  4. View the results of the latest run of a baseline

The filter tool

You can filter the list of revisions in two ways, individually or in combination:

  • Click on this control and select a date. The table will be updated, so that only revisions that were saved on or before this date or will be displayed.
  • Click on this control and select a team member. The table will be updated, so that only revisions that were saved by the chosen team member will be displayed.

Once you've selected one or both of these filters they display your choice:

Click the in the date or name control to cancel that filter.

View the revision steps

if you click on any revision row, then it will expand to show the step thumbnail. As in other places in the application:

  • You can hover over the step thumbnail to see details about the step.
  • You can click on the step thumbnail to open the baseline viewer with that step. See The Baseline viewer.
  • You can use the step menu to open the step or baseline viewer.
