Creating an executive summary from the workbench

To create a printable report that summarizes the findings of the performance test run on a single view, create an executive summary. You can export the data of the test run as an executive summary from a single report or from multiple reports such as Performance Report, Mobile and Web UI Statistical Report, Transaction Report, and Loop Report. You can then open the summary in a word-processing program to further format and annotate the data.

About this task

You export the executive summary to a local or a shared directory. You can export a test run from the Web Analytics report, from the test workbench, and from the command line.

When you use the workbench approach to create an executive summary, you can choose to create the summary for multiple runs and multiple report types at the same time. When you use the Web Analytics reports or the command line, you create executive summary for a particular run and a report at a time.


To create an executive summary from the workbench:

  1. Click File > Export > Test > Executive Summary. You can also right-click the runs to create executive summaries for from the Test Navigator view and click Export > Test > Executive Summary. Each run would have one executive summary.
  2. In Export Directory, specify the folder path to save the executive summary and click Next.
  3. Select the runs to create the executive summary for. To create an executive summary for comparing two runs, select the Generate a compare report check box and select the main run to compare the report with and click Next.
  4. Select a report to export and click Finish.

What to do next

A folder with the name of the run is created on the specified folder. To view the executive summary, open the index.html file.
