Filtering Test Output

When viewing the test output, you can filter by various identifiers such as "Warning," "JS Exception," and "Error" to help get a better understanding of your test. It's simple to do this, as shown below:

  1. Navigate to the output page for your test, as shown above.
  2. Examine the bar at the top of the output feed, you should see the word "Filter."
  1. Click the bar to examine the various filters or, alternatively, type your own custom filter such as "loader," "completed," or anything you'd like. The filter uses word stemming to be able to filter additional words that may be relevant, such as "load" from a "loader" filter.

Collapsing Test Logs & Viewing Thumbnails

Click the "> <" icon on the output page to collapse the written logs and only view the screenshots associated with each step. These screenshots will be shown as smaller thumbnails while the main screenshot on the right, showing visual changes and the elements interacted with by mabl in that step, will expand to a much larger size for easier viewing.

Above each thumbnail is the step that the image is attached to, while hovering over any thumbnail will reveal the full step performed by mabl.

Pro tip: If you toggle Warning, JS Exception, and Error on (leaving info deselected), you'll see all issues that mabl detected, including broken links, failed assertions, JavaScript errors.

You can click the Clock icon in the test output log to toggle between earth time and test time.
