Sequence commands

These commands allows you to run other tests.

This helps you to create modular tests that can be easily reused and swapped out.

List of commands


TEST.run

Runs another test.

WARNING!
All tests run in the same scope. This means that variables with the same name in different tests will override each other.

Usage

TEST.run(path)
Parameters
Parameter Type Remarks
path string Path to the test to run

Example(s)

Basic example using absolute path

Let's take this project with this structure for example.

|-- login
   |-- login_as_buyer
   |-- login_as_merchant
   |-- ...
|-- change_password

The contents of login/login_as_buyer is:

I.goTo("/login");
I.fill("username", "john");
I.fill("password", "supersecretpassword");
I.click("Login");

We can reuse login/login_as_buyer in a another test using the TEST.run command like this:

I.goTo('http://mystore.com');
TEST.run('login/login_as_buyer');

Which will result in a test like this when it is executed:

I.goTo('http://mystore.com');
I.goTo("/login");
I.fill("username", "john");
I.fill("password", "supersecretpassword");
I.click("Login");
Using TEST.run with relative paths

We can specify tests to run relative to the current test file.

Let's take this project with this structure for example.

|-- login
|-- order
   |-- create_and_view_order
   |-- create_order
   |-- view_order

From test order/create_and_view_order test, we can reference tests with relative paths like this:

TEST.run("../login") // use "../" to reference the parent directory
TEST.run("./create_order") // use "./" to referece the current directory
TEST.run("./view_order")
