Risk Summary

This view allows a quick understanding of the number of scoped-in Entry Points and their test coverage

  • The Test Validation Risk (Scoped In Test Coverage) displays the percentage of scoped in Entry Points that are currently covered by Tests
  • Low/Medium/High Impact Risk - The risk is calculated by comparing the number of scoped in Entry Points that are not covered by Tests, to the total number of scoped in Entry Points
