The Baseline viewer

This page allows you to look at the baseline image and annotations of all the steps in a baseline. It is similar to the Test editor that can be opened from the test result page, but the information in the Baseline viewer is "read-only".

To access the Baseline viewer
  1. Select Branch baselines from the Page navigator.
  2. Select a branch from the Branch menu and then click on a Baseline row to expose the baseline thumbnails.
  3. Mouse over a thumbnail to display the thumbnail toolbar and click More options menu.
  4. Click Open in baseline viewer.

The page has the following parts:

Summary panel
Displays the test and application name, the test branch, and the details of the execution environment An execution environment is defined as a triplet of <OS, browser, viewport size>. When a test runs, its execution environment is defined by the platform on which the test runs, or, if run on the Ultrafast Grid, by the configuration of the Ultrafast Grid. A baseline is also associated with an execution environment. By default, the baseline chosen for a test is the baseline that has the same application name, test name, and execution environment as the test. Note that if the initial page in a test is not a secure web page, the execution environment may report the wrong OS or browser version..
