Is it possible to count the status in a Page Property Report in Confluence ?

Page Property Reports in Confluence Cloud is a great tool to enable you to show summary information from one page on a another page.

It is a convenient way present page metadata in a central summary table.

In the example, we have used the page property macro to collect the software releases page on a single table.

Counting the statuses from the column “Execution Status” is now possible using the “QC Status for Confluence Cloud” addon. The app has macro that allows you to get a table with an overview statistics of Status Macros of a Page Property Report.

Generating the status summary table from a Page Property Report in Confluence Cloud

The “QC – Status Stats Table of a Page Property Report” macro allows you to select the page where the Page Property Report exists as well if you would like to filter based on a specific table’s column by defining its header.

If more than one Page Property Reports exists on the same page, it is requested to define the ID of the Report.

Why we’re backing Qameta – Allure Framework and why you should too.

What is Allure anyway ?

If you are looking for a free lightweight universal (i.e. multi-language ) test report tool you might not need to look further; Allure Framework could be all you need.

It is the right testing framework for reporting self-documented test case specification and test report.

“Allure” is “horse gait” in French because tests have steps, and “charm” in English because it looks great !

@aandryashin (Alexander Andryashin) is, in fact, the person who coined the name “Allure Report”.

Since June 2018, PDFAnalytics supports the Allure Framework initiation by contributing to the project via the Open Collective (web-based platform for open source crowdfunding).

The development team behind the project Dmitry @baev, Artem @eroshenkoam, Stanislav @sseliverstov and Vitaliy @vbragin have achieved so far :

What does it look like and what can it do ?

  • Generate nice test execution report in HTML
  • Attach execution artefacts after a step dynamically (e.g. a screenshot from a failed test step, or the log)
  • Link your test cases with the defect ID / requirement ID / user story ID from your management tool
  • Sort by severity i.e. blocker, critical, normal , minor and trivial
  • Check between broken and failed test
  • Test execution trend
  • Analyse the execution time
  • Analyse the test execution timeline
  • Analyse the frequency of the defects

It supports testing frameworks in the following language:  Java,  Python, JavaScript,  Ruby,  GroovyPHP,  .Net, and Scala including python-behave, karma, cucumberjs and SpecFlow.

Finding the balance between ‘Just Enough’ Documentation in your Agile Project

Documentation is a necessary evil; it may look like a cumbersome and time-consuming task but the project cannot survive without it. So, we need to find ways to do just enough documentation — no more, no less.

Allure report can support you to your journey to produce the test documentation for your agile team. Image if there was a single place to collect and display all test execution results from the CI pipeline to your agile team (e.g. unit tests, integration and system level tests) .

The history and the future

In 2019 the Allure family will be expanded with:

  • Allure 3 — realtime support, test environments, result analytics, customization and a brand new UI rewritten using ReactJS.
  • Allure Pro — the same report but more features and integrations (dark theme inc!).
  • Allure Hub — report manager that keeps all the reports in one place.
  • Allure Enterprise — test management system, that would keep both manual and automated tests in one place
