GoLand 2020.3 Help

Explore test results

After GoLand finishes running your tests, it shows the results in the Run tool window on the Test Runner tab.

The console on the right shows the output of the current test session. It allows you to see the detailed information on the test execution and why your tests failed or were ignored.

The Test Runner toolbar located above the list of test results allows you to show and hide successful and ignored tests, display how much time it took to run each test, export, import, and sort test results.

Test results shown on the Test Runner tab of the Run tool window

Next to each test on the Test Runner tab, the IDE displays an icon that marks the test status:

IconDescription
Test errorTest error. This status is assigned to tests that caused an exception from the tested source code.
Test failedTest failed. If at least one child test fails, all its parent tests are marked as failed.
Test ignored

Test ignored.

Test in progressTest in progress.
Test passedTest passed successfully.
Terminated

Test terminated. This status is assigned to tests that were stopped.

If at least one test receives this status, then all unfinished tests and their parent tests are marked as terminated.

Sort and filter test results

Use the following options on the Test Runner toolbar if you want to focus only on the failed tests or if you want to reorganize test results:

  • Disable the the Show Passed button Show Passed option to hide successful tests.

  • Disable the the Show Ignored button Show Ignored option to hide ignored tests.

  • Click the Sort Alphabetically button to sort test results alphabetically.

  • Click the Sort by Duration button to sort test results by duration.

Track test execution

In GoLand, you can monitor execution of the current test. If a test suite contains multiple tests, the list of tests expands to show test methods as they run one by one.

  • To monitor test execution, click  the Settings button on the Test Runner toolbar and enable the Track Running Test option.

    Track test execution

Manage test results

  • Click the Settings button on the Test Runner toolbar and enable the following options:

    • Scroll to Stack Trace: if a test produced a lot of output (for example, logging) before failing, this option automatically scrolls the output console to the assertion failure once you select the test on the Test Runner tab.

    • Navigate with Single Click: open the code for the selected test automatically in the editor.

    • Set Auto Test Delay: point to this node to reveal the list of available delays between file saving and rerunning tests. The selected value gets the check mark.

    • Select First Failed Test When Finished: automatically select the first failed test in the list upon completing the test session.

View statistics

  • To view the execution time for tests, click the Settings button on the Test Runner toolbar and enable the Show Inline Statistics option.

    For each test, the list displays the run configuration name and a time stamp:
