# Understanding the execution report

Once you execute one or more journeys, clicking on the resulting execution job will take you to its execution report. In this section, we look at different parts of this report and how to make the most out of it.

Execution report main screen annotated

The main screen of the execution report has three main components:

  1. List of journeys;
  2. Overall test execution summary, including the current status of the execution, and any other attributes related to the execution (e.g., tags, custom starting variables or headers, users who launched/stopped the journey, etc.);
  3. List of failed tests (if any are present).

This view can be accessed even when the execution is running, and will update live as the execution progresses. Once the execution finishes the timer stops, and the details about tests that failed are presented.

Clicking on one of the journeys will show the associated checkpoints and test steps. When a test step is clicked, the screenshot taken by Virtuoso after performing the step will be displayed:

Clicking on a failed step will have a root cause analysis tab, which will help you get to the bottom of why the test failed.
