Tear Down Steps

Tear Down Steps are the steps defined in a spec after the last scenario. They allow you to specify a set of clean-up steps after every execution of scenario in a spec. They are used to perform a tear down function.

  • Any regular step can be used as a tear down step.
  • Tear down steps are executed after every scenario in the spec.


___: Three or more consecutive underscores will indicate the start of tear down. Steps that are written in tear down(after three or more consecutive underscores) will be considered as tear down steps.

* Tear down step 1
* Tear down step 2
* Tear down step 3


Delete project

* Sign up for user "mike"
* Log in as "mike"

Delete single project
* Delete the "example" project
* Ensure "example" project has been deleted

Delete multiple projects
