"Confidence" subset target

AUTHOR: The Launchable Product Team

We've added a new subsetting target option to the CLI called --confidence. This new option adds to the existing fixed duration (--time) and percentage duration (--target) options.

What does 'confidence' mean? Well, Launchable defines confidence is defined as the likelihood that a test run will pass. For example, when you request a subset using --confidence 90%, Launchable will populate the subset with enough relevant tests expected to find 9 out of 10 failing runs. In the graph above, Launchable will select between 10 and 15 minutes of tests.

--confidence is a useful target to start with because the subset duration should decrease over time as Launchable learns more about your changes and tests.

You can read more about subset targets in our documentation.
