Dashboards

Dashboard in Zebrunner is a special page that displays widgets with main analytical info on your test results.

A system General dashboard is displayed when you open Zebrunner (or press Zebrunner in the upper-left corner of the window). General is not editable – you cannot change its name, make it hidden, delete it or add widgets.

In addition to General, you can create other dashboards to systemize widgets according to your needs.

What can you do with dashboards?

  • Create Dashboards
  • Edit Dashboards
  • Make Dashboards Hidden
  • Delete Dashboards
  • Send Dashboards via email
  • Search for Dashboards by name
  • Change order of dashboards

Edit Dashboard

Optional: If you have “Modify widgets” and “Modify dashboards” permissions, you can edit a dashboard by applying a certain parameter to all the widgets on a dashboard (instead of setting it for each widget manually).

For example, you want to see your test results on a dashboard for the Chrome API only.

For this, perform the following steps:

  1. After the “Edit Dashboard” popup appears, enter the parameter “PLATFORM” (in uppercase) to the “Key” field and “api” (in lowercase) to the “Value” field.
  2. Click “Add” and “Save”.
  3. Refresh the page.

The dashboard will be displayed with updates.

Note: You can apply several parameters (keys) to a dashboard. But you can add only 1 value to a parameter.

Hidden dashboards

Dashboards in Zebrunner can be visible or hidden.

Hidden dashboards are useful when:

  • You want to track your automation team performance on a special dashboard;

Note: You need the “View hidden dashboards” permission to make a dashboard hidden. Otherwise, you will not see this option.

To make a dashboard hidden, open “New dashboard” or “Edit dashboard” popup and click the icon Hidden Dashboard Icon.
