- Change skipped tests to use the "not built" style and status indicator instead of the yellow "unstable" style and status indicator
In an unstable build, there can be
- failed tests
- skipped tests
The skipped tests are the same color and icon as the overall build (orange and ! ) while the tests that actually made the build unstable are red and x. This makes no sense, as it implies a relationship between build status and skipped tests that's just not there.
danielbeck oh are you saying "skipped" tests shouldn't have the same state as "unstable"? I agree. Since skipped tests are not built, WDYT about using the "not built" status here brody?
Yes. It was actually confusing to me trying to understand the icons here – the tests with the same icon as "the entire build" were basically irrelevant. Something grey would be better here, and perhaps even consider changing the failed "red x" icon to "orange !" to match the build step.
jamesdumay skipped ≠ unstable so it doesn't make sense to have the same status or colour.
grey currently is used for aborted... which does have some relation to skipped so that could work.
You are right - it does not make sense. Pipeline actually sets every node as unstable and Blue Ocean just reports on what pipeline tells it. I do have internal commitment from CloudBees OSS team that they will fix it this year for me. Need to narrow down when because it annoys me a lot.
