Pause / Continue

Post by [email protected] » Tue Dec 18, 2018 3:36 pm


I have a number of test cases that test on our production system. I do not want to include the sign on credentials as we have implemented two-factor authentication. Is there a way to start the test, pause, and then present the tester with a 'Continue' button to continue the test case?

Hi Peter,

Some time ago, I posted an example how to pause a test with message box. Check this post:
Another possibility is to run the test in Debug mode and set a breakpoint. But I think this message box solution is somewhat easier.

On the other hand, I would suggest to create a separate test automation credentials, which are supposed to be used only with test automation and which could be used with no worry about company security. If possible, you should never use "live" credentials for test automation!
