Hi Team,

We are using C# Selenium and NUnit framework for our test automation. Sometimes some test cases will fail in dev environment during execution due environmental issues. I was trying to re-run the failed ones, by using Retry attribute. But it didn't work ( I have kept assertion failures as well)

Could you please have a look and let us know.

Thanks, Khaja Shaik.

I'm not an expert on the subject but the documentation is here:

I suspect that those that are expects might wonder what exactly to have a look at. It is probably helpful if you can show some code and test output?

Hi,

Please find the sample code.

TestFixture]


    public class UITests : BaseClassProtractor
    {

        [SetUp]


        public void Setup()
        {
            //**Call chrome driver and open app url set up**//


   }
[Test]
[Retry(1)]
public  TestMethod1()

{
      //** Write test Steps
}

[TearDown]


        public void TearDown()
        {
            Drivers.TryRemove(TestContext.CurrentContext.Test.FullName, out var localDriver);
            localDriver?.Quit();


        }


}

Well, what happens when you run it?

Does point 2 in the documentation apply to your situation perhaps?

Hi Oskar,

Thank you so much for the support.

I have kept a assertion fail condition as well, so again test case is not getting re triggered.

Could you please let me know your available time, will schedule a meeting as well.

Regards,
Khaja Shaik

I don't understand exactly what you mean by that.

Run the test. Copy the output and send it please.

Anyway, I suspect the issue is that you get an exception which is NOT an NUnit assertion failure, and according to point 2 in the documentation, that aborts without running retries. It also says what to do about it.

 

Could you please let me know your available time, will schedule a meeting as well.

I'm afraid that's not quite how this works. This is a public and open discussion group and I'm just some random guy. Currently I am not able to provide paid support services for NUnit.

Hi, the reason the ReTry is not working to you it is because you need to send in the parameter the value '2'. You are sending '1' and that means run only once, NOT RERUN one.
