We need an identical factor to take place with our Cucumber positive factors. The gains may still describe how the procedure behaves at the present time, yet they don’t have to record the historical past of ways it was once outfitted; that’s what a model keep an eye on procedure is for! We’ve noticeable groups whose positive factors listing appears like this: ​features/​ ​ story_38971_generate_new_report. function​ ​ story_38986_run_report. characteristic​ ​ story_39004_log_in. function​ ​ ... We strongly inspire you to not do that. You’ll prove with fragmented beneficial properties that simply don’t paintings as documentation to your approach. One consumer tale may possibly map to at least one function, yet one other person tale could reason you to head and upload or adjust situations in different latest features—if the tale alterations the way in which clients need to authenticate, for instance. It’s not likely that there'll continuously be a one-to-one mapping from every one person tale to every characteristic, so don’t attempt to strength it. if you would like to maintain a narrative identifier for a state of affairs, use a tag in its place. Tags If subfolders are the chapters on your ebook of positive aspects, then tags are the sticky notes you’ve wear pages you need to be capable of locate simply. You tag a situation via placing a be aware prefixed with the @ personality at the line sooner than the state of affairs key-phrase, like this: ​@widgets ​ ​Scenario: Generate record​ ​ Given i'm logged in​ ​ and there's a document "Best promoting widgets"​ ​ ... in reality, you could connect a number of tags to a similar state of affairs, separated with areas: ​@slow @widgets @nightly ​ ​Scenario: Generate in a single day record​ ​ Given i'm logged in​ ​ and there's a record "Total widget revenues history"​ ​ ... on the way to tag the entire eventualities in a characteristic without delay, simply tag the characteristic aspect on the most sensible, and all of the eventualities will inherit the tag. you may tag person situations in addition. @nightly @slow ​ ​Feature: Nightly stories​ ​​ ​ @widgets ​ ​ state of affairs: Generate in a single day widgets file​ ​ ... @doofers ​ ​ state of affairs: Generate in a single day doofers record​ ​ ... within the earlier instance, the state of affairs known as Generate in a single day widgets document may have 3 tags: @nightly, @slow, and @widgets, while the state of affairs referred to as Generate in a single day doofers file can have the tags @nightly, @slow, and @doofers. it's also possible to tag state of affairs define parts or even the person Examples tables underneath them. There are 3 major purposes for tagging situations: Documentation: you just are looking to use a tag to connect a label to sure situations, for instance to label them with an identification from a undertaking administration device. Filtering: Cucumber enables you to use tags as a clear out to pick particular situations to run or file on. it's also possible to have Cucumber fail your try run if a undeniable tag appears to be like too time and again. Hooks: Run a block of Ruby code at any time when a state of affairs with a specific tag is ready to begin or has simply comprehensive.
