Stopping test runs

You can stop a test run before it is complete. For example, you might detect serious problems in the run and not want to wait for it to finish. When stopping the test run, you can choose to save the results and the test log of the run.


  1. During a test run, click Execution control > Stop Test Run.
  2. In the Timeout field, type a number and select a time unit. If you are running HTTP tests and are interested in the results, consider selecting a duration that is long enough for a page to return.
  3. Optional: To collect the results and the test log until the time the test ran, select the Collect Test Results and History check box. The partially run report could be useful for debugging specific issues.
  4. Optional: To stop the execution of the test in the Finally block, clear the Execute Finally blocks check box.
  5. Click OK. The test stops after timeout.
