Optional and Skipped Actions

Optional and Skipped Actions Overivew

You may have a testing scenario where you need to skip an action or make an action optional

  • Optional Action: The test will continue regardless of the pass or fail result of an Optional Action, this can be used for elements that may change frequently or in conjunction with Decision Actions for basic conditional (A/B) workflows
  • Skip Action: This action will not be carried out at all during test execution, this can be useful if a test case flow is temporarily changed and you don't want to edit the entire test - skipping provides an easy option to carry out A/B workflows for comparison

Note: Both Optional and Skip options are only available on the Verify action. On most of the other actions, only have the Skip option.
