Course 3: Build Overview
Learn all the details of the Build Overview in the Applause platform.
The Build Overview page consists of several sections, providing greater insights into the test results for the build. To access more detailed data visualizations about the build, click the “See more details” link at the bottom of the Issues Breakdown section of the relevant build.
High level information about the build is displayed to provide context to the results.
Here you can toggle the results by issue life cycle phases, impacting all other Build Overview sections.
Breakdown of the issues by Severity, Value and Priority provides the main context for the testing results.
The Coverage section enables a deeper dive of the collected results based on technology and location. Examining the results by coverage allows you to better address issues as well as align the testing strategy of future builds.
Coverage by Technology
Offers the distribution of results by the Operating Systems issues reported against. To drill even deeper, hover over the Operating Systems (OS) – mobile OSs will be sliced by device and OS version and desktop OSs will be sliced by the web browser and OS version.
Coverage by Location
Offers a map view highlighting the distribution of results based on the tester country issues were reported from. You may zoom the map in and out and drag it to focus on interest areas.
Issues by Components provide an in-depth view of the results by the components set for the tested product.
Identifying how issues are distributed across components allows you to better address issues as well as align the testing strategy of future builds.
On top of the overall distribution, you may also crosstab the results by:
Issue Type (default)
Priority (where applicable)
The Testing Services section allows you to better understand the testing process. While testing is performed by the Applause Community and driven by your project team, understanding issue accumulations, testing times and triage status keep you informed about the process, allowing you to fine-tune the testing strategy of future builds with your Applause project team.
Triage, including the overall issue approval rate, distribution of issue approvers between the Applause and your users and an indication of issues still pending triage
Testing Times, including average cycle duration and time to first and last issues
Issue Accumulation, offering a timeline of the accumulation of submitted issues at the test cycle level
