2.2 Coverage Analysis

Coverage Analysis Report 

The Coverage Analysis report helps you determine test case and execution coverage as it related to requirements and application areas. Below are some helpful tips on navigating the Coverage Analysis report.

1. Overview

Open the Analysis menu, click Coverage to open the Coverage Analysis page.


  There are two coverage charts:

  • Requirements Test Run Coverage: the heat map is setup so that the size of each box is based on the number of test runs and the color of the box is based on the number of failed runs.  Dark green is the lowest number of failures and bright red is the highest number.
  • Requirements Run Results: The results from the latest run of each test case covering the requirements.

 Test Type: This is to filter out manual vs automation test run data for the below analysis data table.

 Analysis Data Table: This table shows the test cases for each requirement along with the testing results and number of defects. Followings are explanation for several fields in the table.

  • Explorer Sessions: the count of explorer sessions associated to a specific test case and requirement. (An Explorer Session must be linked to a Test Run which then linked to a Requirement to be counted.)
  • Explorer Time:  total time spent in Explorer sessions associated to a specific test case and requirement
  • Open Defects (qTest): the count of qTest defects whose status are either New, Reopened, or Assigned
  • Severe Defects (qTest):  the count of qTest defects whose severity are either Fatal, or Major

2. You can hover over an area to see data

Example: When you hover over the cell of Requirements Test Run Coverage, a small popup displayed telling you that the Requirement US_Login has been covered by 6 test runs and 3 of them failed.
