  • DetailedStatus – summary of the test results. Consists of two lists:

    • Errors – list of all errors that were found during test execution

    • Warnings – list of all warnings that were found during test execution

  • TestStatus – status of the test completion. Depends on the severity of the results:

    • Completed with Errors – errors are more severe than warnings. Therefore, even when both warnings and errors are found during test execution, the TestStatus will read “Completed with Errors”.

    • Completed with Warnings – warnings are less severe than warnings. Therefore, TestStatus will read “Completed with Warnings” when only warnings are found during test execution.
