If we take another look at one of the defects we saw earlier relating to a file download failure, we can see that we had a message in the recording (“Download 191 KB …”) and a different message (“Setting was applied”) in the playback.
Note here that the Next Program and Next Screen Nr. are identical in the expected and actual parameters. This is important, as if we are on a different screen in the playback then it will not be possible to continue with the rest of the script.
We now need to take a look at the function that would have been executed next in the script. This can be done by selecting the step after the one that failed.
We can see here that the user pressed the back button (Function Back (=&F03)). So in this case, since we have an identical screen on the step that failed, and the function being executed in the next step is a standard function, we can deduce that if the failed step (step 8) was suppressed by Testimony, then the rest of the script would be able to continue. This failure is therefore suitable for step-level suppression.
