Tests configured in the Swarm UI can be associated with individual workflows. When a review is associated with a workflow that has tests, those tests will be run when the review is either created/updated or submitted, see Workflows. Tests can also be associated with the global workflow, this ensures that these global tests are enforced for all changes even if they are not part of a project.
