Automated testing results are accessed from the Automated Testing screen in axe Auditor via a simple button that displays the Automated Testing Results screen, which shows a table of summarized information about the issues found.

Note - When No Issues Are Found: A message to that effect is displayed as 'No automated issues were found for this page (or component)'.

Example response message when no issues are found on the Automated
Testing screen, with buttons to either Rerun Automated tests or Go To
Manual Tests

Buttons are provided at the bottom of the dialog box that allow you to either Rerun Automated Tests or Go To Manual Tests.

When Issues Are Found and Automated Testing Completes: Accessing the Automated Testing Results screen is done by activating a button from the Automated Testing screen. After automated tests have run, the Automated Testing screen is refreshed to display a completion message indicating the number of issues found. It also displays a link to go to manual tests, along with a Go to Manual Results button.

When You Rerun Automated Tests: A confirmation message is displayed confirming whether you want to run the automated tests again. Activate the button, Yes, Run Again to rerun the automated tests.

The re-run action for automated tests will delete existing automated results prior to running the tests again.
