Morning, how or what is the approach in cucumber js to close and restore the browser after each scenario in a feature? Similar to what mocha (webdriverio) does between each test? Or it is a different understanding to appreciate? I can quit() and closeSession() in a hook no problem but bringing back the browser(s) to start next session isn't so clear how to best achieve this. Any guidance please? I'm using WDIO v6
found it, simple browser.reloadSession() in the global hooks, does the trick nicely! :)
Anyone explain how to pass a reference in.. something like this (doesn't work in cucumber syntax)
Given I want "browserA" to refresh
Given(/^I want "([^"]*)" to refresh$/), (browserN) => { browserN.refresh() })
I've clearly misunderstood how to pass this in correctly, I achieve a similar approach with Mocha WDIO, where we have multiremote in use, and send commands across different running browsers (users). How do I do something similar in cucumberJS? thanks in advance

Hello! does somebody know if is it possible to define our own custom table types, like java version does: https://github.com/cucumber/cucumber/tree/master/datatable#custom-table-types
??? thanks!!

@StaroKep , are your step definitions defined as arrow functions? In that case they won't have access to a 'this'

We don't use arrow functions. We use function(){...}.
We updated Xcode and all started work fine. It's strange, but it helped us to solve the problem.

Hi guys!. I have a question. I am new at "Cucumber-js" For execute your tests in node js. what command line do you use?. How to configure my proyecto for only execute "cucumber-js src/features/login.feature" ?. I'm using only cucumber and gRPC for API test.

Hi All, Is there a way to update cucumber.json report after or during execution? I want to add some meaningful text along with the error message for failed steps.
Priyanka Kondajji
This was all good. I had removed arrow functions and was working fine. But from yesterday, I get this TypeError: this.attach is not a function. and also while comitting the code, i get as "Unexpected unnamed async function (func-names)"
When('Post a transition , async function() { this.attach(Transition with payload: ${JSON.stringify(payload, undefined, 4)});

Hey folks, using wdio w/ cucmberjs and was wonderig if there was a way to inject values into the datatable at runtime so that when we get to beforeScenario, the scenario is compiled with the new datatable values?
I keep getting these types of errors when a timeout is reached function timed out, ensure the promise resolves within 120000 milliseconds when running tests via saucelabs. I'd like to see what element it failed on so I don't have to go into saucelabs see the error there. Is there anyway to have a more useful timeout message?

Hello! is there any tool to document all the step-definitions we have defined within a project?
I'm trying to make an npmjs package for cucumber so that a developer can just write cucumber files. Is there an example of that that someone can point me to? Or documentation on how to do it?
Hmm, the messages in here seem to be from long ago without answers. Is there a more active place to ask there questions?
In case you didn't find out yet, @vrudhay , I think it depends on your testing library. For something like chai, it would be something like `expect( something() ).to.throw(). Your testing framework documentation would have more info.
@kamolins : Are folks still active in this chat anymore?
Sorry to pick on you. It was the name I saw in the last commit, so it has a chance of being active.
A more useful question would be - is there someplace that is more active for these kinds of conversations?
I wonder if there's a way to add an automatic message in here.
