Software testing frequently encounters sporadic problems, such network outages. Even if the application being tested is working properly, these problems can cause automated test scenarios to fail. We have created a new retry functionality that automatically retries failed BDD scenarios in order to solve this issue. In this blog post we will have a look at the advantages of retrying unsuccessful scenarios, how it is implemented in NoCodeBDD, and how it works.
Why Retrying Failed Scenarios is Useful
Running automated test scenarios is a crucial component of software testing, but it may be irritating when they fail due to problems like network outages. Even if the application being tested is working well, one failed case can cause the entire test suite to fail. This may result in falsely negative test findings and reports.
Even one failing scenario during the execution of a full set of automated tests can dramatically slow down the process and reduce testing effectiveness. It might be more irritating when the failure results from a transient problem, such as a network outage, because the scenario might succeed if it were run again.
Retrying failed scenarios ensures that the test results accurately represent the behaviour of the application being tested and lowers the frequency of false negatives. As a result, test results are more accurate and it is less frustrating to not have to run the full test suite again because of a single scenario that failed due to network blip.
How NoCodeBDD implements Retry Capability
Benefits of Retry functionality
NoCodeBDD’s mitigation plan
- A report showing scenarios that are often fails and passes after retrying
- Graphically expressive reports that show unsuccessful efforts and the places of failure, and
- The use of a particular reserved tag, like “retry:2.”

Given, When, and Then are the three essential components of behavior-driven development (BDD), a software development methodology that focuses on defining the behavior of software through examples in plain language. Here’s a brief description of each component: Given: This represents the preconditions or initial state of the system before the […]
