What is Automated Test Pass Percentage?

DevOps relies heavily on automation, and automated test pass percentages tell teams how well their tests are working. Think of it as a test for a test. This is an important metric to determine how well tests work during code changes. If a test has a low pass percentage, that assists with automation by highlighting a need to change existing tests or create new ones. Low pass percentages mean bugs are getting through unnoticed, which can be detrimental to a project in some cases. This ensures reliability, as the goal for every automated test pass percentage should be around 100%. Keeping track of automated test pass percentages can help you look at your tests over time for consistency as well.

Automated test pass percentages can be calculated by taking the number of samples given to a test and recording the number of passes or fails. For example, if your test looks at 100 samples and 99 of them pass, your test has a 99% test pass percentage.
