Cause a test failure
Test failures are part of testing. Let’s produce one in a controlled environment to see what they look like in Ranorex Studio.
Return to the test suite view and run the test.
The test fails, and the report shows what happened.
Failed test report
The test failed because the validation of the welcome message failed. The validation expected the value “Welcome, Harry!”, but it actually found the value “Welcome, Sally!”. Therefore, the test was aborted.
