Cancelling a Test Run

Cancelling a Test Run


I currently have a test step which calls another test case. In the called test case, I have a groovy script with a conditional if statement. If a certain condition is met I want to cancel the current execution. I've added the below two lines;

testRunner.cancel("Condition not met");

What I find however, is that control is passed back to the test case in which the call was made from, and it continues to execute the remaining test steps within the case. The only way around this is to use""), but this is not really what I want.

Please can anyone advise. Many thanks.

Hi @stores80,


testRunner.cancel("Condition not met");


Above syntax you are using is alone sufficient enough to stop the execution. Try with removing return statement.
