Dimensions are a great way to enrich your test results.
In this tutorial we will create a Sales Person dimension that lists all sales staff in our company.
Then we create two tests that map to that dimension.
Finally we show how to view that data on the portal.
Dimensions are created globally for all tests in exMon.
To create a dimension you right click the Dimension folder in General and select New… > Dimension.
Dimensions consist of:
Note: you can also update dimension in Command Prompt by: epcmd—uat <UAT>—update_dimension <DIMENSION_ID>
The next step is to map Tests to our dimension.
Now you can view exception in the Exception Overview by Data Type or by Dimensions.
Hover over dimension selector to get a list of dimensions and select Sales Person.
There you get an overview of the sales staff with how many exceptions are mapped to each of them.
The staff is grouped by attributes and here I have expanded into our North America > North West territory and see exceptions on three sales persons.
When I click a sales person I can view how those exceptions are divided into Tests.
Here David Campbell has 39 exceptions in two tests.
I can expands the tests to see detail, filter and sort to get the best sense of the exceptions.
If I click the Test title (Account Number Not Set) I can view the detail of that specific test and view all data returned from the query.
And to quickly move between sales persons you can hover of Dave Campbell’s name to select another.
