Wait until request executed successfully

Wait until request executed successfully

Hi Community Members,


I have stuck at a point where i need to pause/wait my groovy steps untill my request get executed successfully.

And i am hitting my request via groovy and then asserting it. I don't want to use hardcore wait like Thread.sleep()


Suppose below is my groovy


1. Some code


wait(i want to wait untill step 2 gets executed and response gets generated.)

3. some code to verify response


I want it dynamic. Thanks in Advance.

" i am hitting my request via groovy" - What kind of request? And sample code that is used?


Hi @nmrao ,


My Request is of REST Type and below is the sample code, currently i am using Thread. sleep, but instead i want to wait till my request gets run.


def runStatus =, context);
Thread.sleep(4000)//want to replace this with dynamic wait

Not sure why you want to run REST request from a groovy script instead of having a REST Request step. Any specific reason?


If the assertion is added REST Request, are not those executed directly instead of verifying them in Groovy Script?


Any ways, it appears that you do not need to wait or use sleep.

See if the below snippet of code helps (follow comments)


import static com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestStepResult.TestStepStatus.*
import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.teststeps.WsdlTestRequestStep
import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.teststeps.RestTestRequestStep
import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.teststeps.JdbcRequestTestStep
import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.teststeps.HttpTestRequestStep

 Your code before run method comes here
def result =, context)
def isStepRequestType = { model -> [WsdlTestRequestStep, RestTestRequestStep, JdbcRequestTestStep, HttpTestRequestStep].any { model.class == it} }
switch(result.status) { case FAILED: log.error "${} is executed, but failed" break case [OK, UNKNOWN] : "${} execution is finished successfully" if (isStepRequestType(step)) { def response = result.responseContent assert response, 'Response is null or empty'
log.debug response //Add other assertions on response as needed - verification part } break //last statement in case default: result.status break }



Are you able to make any progress on this? or still stuck?
Got chance to try the proposed solution? Appreciate your feedback.



Not sure what happened to this question and response. You said stuck. But not replied after the answer. At least you can say solution is working or not working or did not get chance to try.

@nmrao thanks for keeping an eye on the thread.

I think we could mark your reply as a solution for now. And, if Himanshu gets back with some other instructions he used to resolve this, we will mark them as the final solution here Smiley Happy
