Default behaviour "Continue On Fail"

Post by dkmpbrt » Fri Feb 02, 2018 8:42 am


At this moment, it is possible to put "Continue on Fail" on a module to "True". By default it is "False". I am wondering if there is any way to set it default to "True"?

Kind Regards,

I don't think there is a way to make this option default. And honestly, I personally think it would be a big mistake to use it that way. This option should be used only in some rare cases, when you actually know and expect the test will fail. But your tests should never fail regularly and you should definitely not continue with them without proper handling of failed steps. Using "continue on fail" at regular basis would lead to "corrupted" or misleading tests. Hence using "continue on fail" as a default option is a very bad idea. Just my opinion ;)
