Hi,

I have a question regarding Test Studio - Test Lists. I am writing tests for an online application and they are written in such a way, that  each test cleans changes made to the app. The problem i am having, is that if one test fails to clean after itself, the others fail as well ( changes made to the app ). 

Is there a way, to make some sort of a "TRAP" in test lists where if ONE TEST FAILS, it executes a few other tests which reset the application before continuing the test list.

Thank you,
Jernej

Hello Jerne,

Yes you might be able to implement this by creating your own test extension DLL and take advantage of OnStepFailure:

/// <summary>
/// Use this function to add functionality when any test step fails
/// </summary>
/// <param name="executionContext">The ExecutionContext the test is running under.</param>
/// <param name="stepResult">Additional details about the step results.</param>
public void OnStepFailure(ExecutionContext executionContext, ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.AutomationStepResult stepResult)
{
    this.ExecuteTest(this.ExecutionContext.DeploymentDirectory + "\\folder\\cleanuptest.tstest");
}

The other option which does not involve coded solution will be to include as test as step the clean up test before each test in the test list is executed.

Thank you for your answer, Ivaylo.

The second option of  seems to be rather time costly if you run more then a few tests in a test list. So i will try with my own DLL extension.

Have a good day,
Jernej
