'Historical' reports display graphical and numerical data relating to sets of coverage data collected over time for the project. 

Clover 4 brings new HTML report developed according to the Atlassian Design Guidelines; it's shortly named "ADG". Clover 3 offers an old-style JavaDoc-like format, named "Classic". It is still possible to fall-back to the "Classic" report in Clover 4, however this report style is deprecated.

ADG report style (Clover 4 only)


Historical report consists of several sections:

  • Date range and Code metrics widgets
  • Coverage overview - shows coverage from the last history point
  • Added classes - classes which have been added in the specified time span
  • Changed classes - classes for which metrics have changed above specified thresholds in given time span
  • Charts - set of charts (they are customizable)


Blue application header

Classic report style (Clover 3 and Clover 4)

Classic report style has been removed in Clover 4.1.0. See Clover 4.0 documentation.
