To run a specific test, click the play button. The job will be displayed once completed.

The job will also be displayed in the Jobs window.

Some validation tests contain data related to devices or ports like device GUID and port GUID.

Depending on that information a context menu for each related device/port can be shown.

If the data is related to a port the context menu will contain both port and device options.
