Axe DevTools Extension Updates: Export Entire Saved Test
After receiving numerous feature requests relating to exporting an entire saved test and all of its issues, we are excited to ship that very feature in the axe DevTools v4.21 extension release!
Updates to Export Feature
Prior to v4.21, users could export issues for a single automated scan or saved test, which facilitates importing those issues into your issue tracking systems. Now, in addition to the issue export, Pro users can also export data for their entire saved test in JSON format.
This export will allow you to see the full picture for all of your automated and guided testing, which is especially useful for users working at organizations who need to keep thorough accessibility testing records.
How to Export a Saved Test
To export a saved test, simply:
1.) Navigate to any saved test and click “EXPORT”
2.) Select “Saved test and issues” and then click “EXPORT”
Watch this quick demo video to see what the Export feature can do for axe DevTools Pro users.
