Setting custom and conditional report colors - Legacy Reports

Not only can you customize colors in your reports, but you can also make the report colors change when they match a formula that you set.


  1. In the Test Navigator, expand the project until you locate the run. Each run begins with the name of the schedule or test, and ends with the date of the run in brackets.
  2. Double-click the run. The default report opens.
  3. Right-click the graphic to modify, and then click Customize Colors. The Customize Colors window opens.
  4. Select one of the following:
    Option Description
    Use default palette Click to use the predefined color combinations on the Performance Test Reports preference page (Window > Preferences > Test > Performance Test Reports).
    Define simple palette Click to define a simple array of colors. The first color is assigned to the first graphic element. The second color is assigned to the second graphic element, and so on.
    Define conditional palettes Click to define a color that is used when a graphic matches an expression (for example, you can make a bar turn red when its value is >= 1000 ms, or a table cell turn green when its value = "Passed").
  5. Click OK.
  6. To apply the palette to all results opened with this report, save the report (File > Save). When you open other results with the saved report, the palette is applied to the result.


You have now assigned custom colors to a report. If you have defined a conditional palette, you can open the report during a run and see it change colors when it satisfies the values that you have set. To return to the default report colors, click Window > Preferences > Test > Performance Test Reports, and then click Restore Defaults.
