On the device screen you see the results of all checks and inputs.

Anchor Area (fail and pass)

The core of testing is the definition of anchor areas. If the reference image in the anchor area is not found on the Test device, the test status returns fail. If all anchor areas of a test were found during a run, the test status returns pass.

Marked left is a click input which follows after the anchor image “magnifying glass” has been found.
