CI Results Explorer

CI Results Explorer

Overview

The CI Results Explorer gives you visibility into your CI jobs that are executing Synthetic tests.

You can:

  • Drill down into each CI job execution to identify and troubleshoot failing test results.
  • Compare test results executed against various devices and browsers to pinpoint cross browser and device issues.
  • Keep track of the progress of your tests in CI pipelines.
  • Identify flaky tests to fix.

Exploring batches

The CI Results Explorer displays batches of tests that were run through the Synthetic CI/CD testing integration. Every batch corresponds to a call to the Datadog API (through the NPM package or directly through the API endpoint) to trigger one or several test executions.

Click on a batch to open a side panel containing batch CI metadata and batch test results. Explore the test executions performed as part of the batch and pinpoint test failures. Click on a failing test result to see the detailed Test Result page and investigate the root cause of the issue.
