Introduction to Cover Reports 2.0

Early access feature

What is Cover Reports?

Diffblue Cover Reports provides a variety of ways to visualise an application based on information derived from Diffblue Cover.

Cover Reports allows your team to identify gaps in your application’s coverage and the reasons for those gaps. This means development can be targeted in those areas, which leads to improved coverage, improved application code and lower risk.

This is illustrated with several common scenarios.

Available with Cover CLI

Cover Reports is available for customers using the Diffblue Cover CLI. Please contact your account manager to ask for access to Cover Reports.

If you are not yet using the Cover CLI, you can start a free trial.

Prerequisites
