Reporting is an important aspect of test automation because it helps to track the progress, results, and overall effectiveness of the automation process. A good reporting system can provide valuable insights and help to identify areas of improvement, as well as highlight successes and achievements.

Here are a few specific reasons why reporting is important in test automation:

  • It helps to ensure that the automation process is running smoothly and efficiently, and can identify any issues or problems that may arise.
  • It allows stakeholders to track the progress of the automation process and understand how it is contributing to the overall testing efforts.
  • It can provide valuable data and metrics that can be used to optimize and improve the automation process over time.
  • It helps to identify trends and patterns that may not be immediately apparent from looking at individual test results.
  • It can help to build confidence in the automation process by providing a clear and transparent record of its results.


In Boozang we always generate screenshots for all action failures resulting in a element validation error or a failure to locate an element.


Except for screenshots generated by errors, there are times where you explicitly want to make a screenshot, for instance to provide evidence of a test running successfully. You do this with the function $util.attachScreesnhotToReport.
