Post Actions Panel

The Post Actions panel specifies what type of action occurs after the step executes. You can make the action conditional on the pass/fail status of the step or on any custom condition expression. You can enable the Use Custom Condition option, enter a custom expression that evaluates to True or False, and select the appropriate actions from the On Condition True and On Condition False ring controls.

The Post Actions panel contains the following categories:

  • On Pass—An action that occurs when the step completes with a status of Passed.
  • On Fail—An action that occurs when the step completes with a status of Failed.
  • On Condition True—The action that occurs when the step completes and the custom condition expression evaluates to True. This option replaces the On Pass option when you enable Use Custom Condition. You cannot select an Else or Else If step as the target of a post action.
  • On Condition False—The action that occurs when the step completes and the custom condition expression evaluates to False. This option replaces the On Fail option when you enable Use Custom Condition. You cannot select an Else or Else If step as the target of a post action.
  • Use Custom Condition—Specifies whether a custom condition controls the post action for the step.

The following post actions appear in the ring controls for the On Pass, On Fail, On Condition True, and On Condition False controls:

  • Goto next step—Execution continues normally with the next step. This is the default value.
  • Goto step—Execution branches to the destination you select. You can branch to any step in the current step group, to the end of the current step group, or to the Cleanup step group. If the post action for a step specifies if execution branches to the Cleanup step group and the current step is in the Cleanup step group, execution proceeds normally with the next step in the Cleanup step group. You cannot select an Else or Else If step as the target of a post action.
  • Terminate execution—Execution terminates.
  • Call sequence—TestStand calls a sequence before continuing to the next step. You can select any sequence in the sequence file. TestStand does not pass any arguments to the sequence. If the sequence has parameters, TestStand uses their default values.
  • Break—TestStand suspends before continuing to the next step.
