Retry failed test cases within the test suite


#1

Currently, Katalon retries failed test cases in a new test suite for several times.

I hope Katalon add another rerun pattern for failed test cases. That is, if a test case fails, the it retries again after it fails, just within the same test suite.

There are several advantage for this pattern:
1. The test report will be easy to read. Because although there are failed test cases, they are in the same test suite, which means there will be much less report folders.

2. Using after test suite hook to monitor whether a test suite failed will be easier. If the failed test cases run in another test suite, after test suite hook will run for several times, it is hard to say whether the test suite failed.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for this suggestion. I will forward it to the team for further discussion.

Hi!

Definitely vote for Andy’s proposal. It would be great if we have this feature in Katalon Studio - will be easy to get test statistic in one place and to upload it to CI server like Jenkins.

Thanks & regards,
Anton
