Tagging Basics

Cucumber provides a simple method to organize features and scenarios by user determined classifications. This is implemented using the convention that any space delimited string found in a feature file that is prefaced with the commercial at (@) symbol is considered a tag. Any string may be used as a tag and any scenario or entire feature can have multiple tags associated with it. Be aware that tags are heritable within Feature files.

  • Scenarios inherit tags from the Feature statement
  • Examples inherit tags from the Feature and Scenario statements

Utilizing Tagging

If multiple databases or environments are expected to be exercised with Cucumber tests, tagging is an excellent way to make reuse of test code. It’s easiest and simplest to design each feature file (think test suite) with at least one specific data-environment in mind. If multiple data-environments share common functionality, design the tests to run over as many as possible. The purpose is to indicate valid tests for each of the desired sets of data or environments. Each feature file should then be tagged with the intended data-environment. Including these tags utilizes Cucumber’s built in feature for narrowing down tests, and if the Java code can also be setup to switch data-environments based on the tag. If scenarios in the feature file are specific to different data-environments, then it should be considered to break them into different features. If not broken into features, then include tagging as the scenario level, instead of the feature level.

In addition to indicating tags for data-environments, tags should also be utilized for testing types. Scenario Outlines contain data tables to run over, and it’s an effective use of these tables to divide the tests run into Smoke and Regression tests. Create smaller subsets of the data for a Smoke test, and tag the larger tables as Regression. Additional testing types can also be rolling into this structure, with little effect on the tests. Consider adding Acceptance or Integration tests.
Now let’s take a look at our previous cucumber tests, and roll in some useful tagging. In our below example, we have two different environments to test over: our CosmicComix.org website, and our CosmicComix.net website, each with slightly different functionality. Our login test applies to both sites, and so we apply tags for both at the Feature level. Additionally, we want to indicate which of our test run for the full regression, and which is appropriate for a smoke test.

	@CCOrg @CCNet
	Feature: Testing for login page

	Scenario Outline: Bad login

		Given I want to use the browser Firefox
		When I set the username to [username]
		When I set the password to [password]
		When I login to CosmicComix
		Then I see the error message "[message]"
		And I am on the login page

		@Regression
		Examples:
		|	username		|	password		|		message		|
		|	testuser1 		|				|	Please provide a password.	|
		|				|	testuser1		|	Please provide a username.	|
		|	testuser		|	testuser		|	That username does not match anything in our records.		|
		|	testuser1		|	testuser2		|	The password provided does not match the username entered.	|

	Scenario Outline: Successful login

		Given I want to use the browser [browser]
		When I set the username to testuser1
		And I set the password to testuser1
		When I login to CosmicComix
		Then I am on the launcher page

		@Regression
		Examples:
				|	    browser	 |
				|	    Firefox	 |
				|	    Chrome       |
				|     InternetExplorer   |
		@Smoke
		Examples:
				|	browser		|
				|	Firefox		|

In the above example, if we ran providing the tag @Smoke we would only run the Successful login test for the Firefox browser. If instead we ran providing the tag @Regression we would instead run all of the Bad login tests, and the Successful login test over all three browsers. Providing no tag would run all tests, both Smoke and Regression. Alternatively a tilde (~) could be added before the desired tag to negate the tag. E.g. if we ran with the tag ~@Regression all tests NOT tagged as Regression would be executed.

Java Code Tie In

As we discussed previously, we can run our Cucumber tests with a multitude of runners. If we use something like Ant as our JUnit runner, we can simply pass in our tags, and then further access them from the java code. We just need to add a few arguments under our java run target. For example:

<arg value="--tags"/>
	<arg value="${dataenvironment}"/>
	<arg value="--tags"/>
	<arg value="${testtype}"/>
	<sysproperty key="dataenvironment" value="${dataenvironment}"/>

Passing the dataenvironment as a tag allows Cucumber to recognize it as a tag to be run against. Additionally you’ll notice the –tags value in their twice. That is to ensure we get the proper logic selected. This means we’ll run anything tagged as dataenvironment AND testtype. If we had placed them in the same tag, we’d be running anything tagged as dataenvironment OR testtype. Finally, by adding the value as a sysproperty, our Java code can access the value, and make the desired changes in the code based on the database being run against. To access this value, setup your JUnit framework to read in this value before any of the tests execute as below.

	@Before	//performed before anything is done
	public void setup() throws SAXException, IOException {
		if( System.getProperty( "dataenvironment") != null ) {
			database = Databases.valueOf( System.getProperty( "dataenvironment" ).substring(1) );
		}
	}

And then later determine how to connect to the specific data-environment within the database code set.
Finally, to properly execute this code, you just kick off Ant with the below command.

	ant -Dtesttype=@Smoke -Ddataenvironment=@CCOrg

    Hello Max,

    I have two issues. . but for now looking solution for the first issue

    Is it possible to run multiple scenarios with different user defined tags as per required order in same feature file?

    For Example: I have a feature file “Test”

    Feature: Test

    @NeedsToBeRunFirst
    Scenario: Scenario One

    @NeedsToBeRunThird
    Scenario: Scenario Two

    @NeedsToBeRunSecond
    Scenario: Scenario Three

    @ so on , , ,

    Now I want to run the scenario in an order as the tag given to each scenario

    Thanks,
    In Advance

  • Max Saperstone

    For running Cucumber tests in a specific order, it’s important to keep in mind that by default, Cucumber features/scenarios are run in a very specific order. First each directory of feature files is run alphabetically, then each feature file alphabetically from the directory, and then each scenario in order it is listed.
    Cucumber does not support modifying this order, and I haven’t seen any good hacks for it either. If you want to specify the features specifically, then they will run in that order. If you know that your tests will always run in the order that you listed above, simply re-order your tests in the feature file.
    I’ve read comments from Aslak Hellesøy (creator of Cucumber) stating that relying on specific ordering of testing is discouraged and will never be supported. This is a very understandable statement, as good tests should be independent, and setup their own data, and remove their own data when completed.
    If ordering your tests within your feature files doesn’t do the trick, then you might want to consider trimming down your tests, and rethinking their implementation

      You’ll have to be more specific as to how/where you want to apply the loop.
      Gherkin does not support looping, but if you’re looking to re-run the same steps with different data, consider using a Scenario Outline, different data sets that will loop through the same steps.

    You can call step definitions from inside step definitions. So, in code you can create your own loop around another step definition and pass in a variable to a capture group like you would normally.

      When you say get the tags at run time, do you mean dynamically determine what tags exist, or just indicate which tags to execute on at run time?
      If the former, I’d wonder why, as it seems you may be over complicating the issue. If the latter, you can just pass in the tags as system parameters. I have provided an example using ant in the post, but depending on how you kick off the tests, that would vary. How are you launching your tests?

      Hi Gopinath,
      If you’re running from maven, then all you need to do is pass in the cucumber tags as maven command line variables.
      It would look something like this:
      mvn test -Dcucumber.options="--tags @runThisTag --tags ~@ignoreThisTag"
      You could even set some default tags in your maven pom file, which could be overridden by these variables, but by leaving that blank, by default all of your tests would run.
      If you wanted to set additional options from the command line, you could do that as well. These can set/override anything declared in your @CucumberOptions annotation
      mvn install -Dcucumber.options="--tags @runThisTag --tags ~@ignoreThisTag --format json-pretty:target/cucumber-report.json --format html:target/cucumber-html-report"

      Gotcha, but how are you actually getting the tests to run? Are you running them within eclipse? If so, then changing the tags shouldn’t be a problem.
      Are you running them from the command line? If so, what are the commands you are using? You could easily be using maven or ant to run the tests, in which case it’s simple to pass tags. Even if you are running the java compile and execute commands directly, it is simple enough to provide tags.

      I’d have to know more about your setup, unfortunately, this sounds more complicated than something with a quick answer. You can always get commandline args from the System.getProperty() method in Java. Hopefully, by using that, you can set your params, and read them in, and set them to your suite.setGroups params.
      A simpler solution would be to have one runner, kicked off from maven or ant, where you provide the group directly, instead of calling code to call code.

    Hi Max,

    Let me explain my setup first. I have created 4 packs for my automation runs. Each pack individually contains around 20 feature files and each feature file in turn has multiple scenarios. I execute these packs each Friday to run over the weekend and get logs Monday morning. I then wanted to broaden the use of the pack and thought about re-running the failed scenarios from each feature file. To accomplish this I used the tags “-f pretty -f rerun –out .txt appended to each feature file name. So it would look something like this:
    ruby -S bundle exec cucumber -p default –require features features/regression_pack/part_3/<script name.feature -f pretty -f rerun –out .txt
    and so on for each of those 20 feature files in the pack.
    But what it does is, it executes the failed scenarios form one feature file right after it has completed execution the first time. I need it to execute the failed scenarios after all the feature files have been executed and then execute the failed scenarios.
    Can you help me out with some suggestions on how this could be achieved? Please let me know if you need any more information.

      That sounds like a very interesting issue. I’m not familiar enough with the cucumber ruby runner to be able to give you a good answer, as I’ve spent most of my time on the java side (cucumber-jvm).
      This does bring up an interesting question to my mind. Why do you want to re-run failing tests? I would it is because the expectation is they would pass the second time. My follow-up question to answer I just gave myself is this: why are your tests failing sometimes and passing sometimes. Inconsistently reporting tests is the bane of testing, and if they pass sometimes and fail others, how can they ever be trusted?
      If it were up to me, I would instead focus my efforts on getting the tests to run consistently each and every time, instead of getting the re-run to work.
      Good luck!

        Well, you’ve got that spot on! The tests are inconsistently failing or passing which puts me in a spot when I try to report the failures to the higher-ups.

      Max Saperstone

      Absolutely, it just depends on how you want to implement it. As I mentioned in my post, if you want to AND your tags, they need to be provided via ant as duplicate inputs, similarly if you use maven or groovy as your runner. That means providing these as hardcoded elements in your build file (build or pom) is relatively simple, but makes it more difficult to do from the commandline.
      I would suggest instead of providing your tags as directly indicated in the post, setup an options input field which will grab parameters, and then explicitly provide the tag parameters you want. It’s not as clean, but will accomplish what you want.
      Instead of the snippet I provided above, instead, include the following for your build.xml file:

      <arg value="${options}"/>

      Then, instead of setting your testtype in the commandline parameters, instead set your desired cucumber options, which in this case would be your tags.
      For OR, provide the below

      -Doptions="--tags @tag1,@tag2"
      

      For AND, provide the below

      -Doptions="--tags @tag1 --tags @tag2"
      

      I hope this helps

      Unfortunately, Cucumber doesn’t provide the capability to run tests in the order that the tags are specified in. Best practice is to make your test atomic, not-dependent on each other.
      If you need to set dependencies, look at doing that within your defined Cucumber hooks

      Sure thing, I’d suggest setting it up using tags.
      Add the index at the top of each feature, and then pass in your index as a tag

    Hi Max,

    We are using Cucumber framework for our Android Application UI testing.
    Currently we are facing below issue:

    In our gradle preject, under androidTest package 2 runner class are used
    In one, AndroidJUnit4 runner is used
    @RunWith(AndroidJUnit4.class)
    public class ClassA {

    }
    In 2nd one, Customized cucumber runner is used
    @CucumberOptions(features = “features”, glue = “android.runner”)
    public class Instrumentation extends MonitoringInstrumentation {
    ..
    }
    In build.gradle, we have added below code part.

    if(project.hasProperty(‘Espresso’))
    {
    testInstrumentationRunner “android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner”
    }
    else {
    testApplicationId “android.runner”
    testInstrumentationRunner “android.runner.Instrumentation”
    }
    So to run Espresso test we are using “./gradlew connectedandroidTest -PEspresso” command and to run cucumber test “./gradlew connectedandroidTest” command is used.
    At a time only one runner can be use.
    We don’t want to give this explicit command.
    So is it possible to run both the test runner sequentially?

      I think this is a simple matter of realigning your gradle file.
      You should create two separate tasks one for each runner, and then you can have on task which runs one, and then the next.
      That latter task can then be the one your call from the commandline

    Ok.. Thanks Max..
    But where we can check the Index value which is updated at run time?

      I’m honestly not certain what index value you are referring to. Can you provide a concrete example?

    Can you please provide any example from sequential run of multiple runner?

      task taskOne(type: Test) {
      //do some things
      }
      task taskTwo(type: Test) {
      //do some things
      }
      task Test(type: Test) {
      taskOne
      taskTwo
      }

    I would briefly try to explain..
    We read index value from device.
    Based on the index value, all the scenarios in the corresponding feature file should run.
    Now let’s take an example…
    Index value is 3; feature files 1 & 2 should be check and skip.
    So this skipping part I am not able to implement..
    Could you please guide me?

      How do you retrieve the index value?
      Swing over to Techwell Hub, and ping me, maybe we can talk through this some
