Self-healing Tests

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Can we disable self-healing or speed it up for Runtime Engine execution? It extended my test from 2 minutes to 20 minutes for a single test case. That is not acceptable for CI/CD.


You can disable Self-Healing, but be reminded that self-healing doesn’t take effect if your tests don’t fail.


Hi, you mentioned that self-healing extended the execution from 2 minute to 20 minutes. It sounds like you are applying image locator, otherwise such extension seems unlikely. Can you share me the log, or elaborate on why it’s taking so long ?

Yes, we had image locator on. It’s on by default.

We turned off the entire feature because waiting 20 minutes for a test failure notification is way too long. We will try it out with just the image locator turned off.
