Blocked Tests

Post by costamesakid » Fri Dec 02, 2011 8:02 pm

Recently I have seen in my test report that a small percentage of my tests have been 'blocked'. What exactly is this status and what is the criteria needed for such a test to be reported as 'blocked'. Thanks

If there is an error within a testcase, there are three ways of error behavior:
- stops
- continue with sibling
- continue with iteration

Stop will stop the whole test.

Continue with sibling will continue the test with the next sibling test case of the current testcase (where an error occured). If you were doing a data driven test and the error occurs e.g. in the 2nd of 5 iteration, the iteration 3,4 and 5 are blocked.

Continue with iteration will continue with the current testcase's next iteration (if you are doing data driven test). Therefore, if the error occurs within a data driven test's 2nd of 5 iteration, iteration 3,4 and 5 will be executed.

Change the error behavior of a testcase in the context menu of a testcase (right click on the testcase).
