Logging command output for the manual plugin

Asked by Javier Collado on 2009-06-05


According to my experience, output is captured for both manual and shell plugin since it's possible to use the $output syntax in the description. However, it seems it's only logged for the shell plugin.

Currently, I'm working on some test cases that, after gathering certain information, show it to the user and ask something such as "Is this correct?". Since from time to time a human error or a change in the pass criteria could happen, I think it would be nice to have the output of those commands in the report so that when reviewing old results it could be found what was the information that was supplied to the tester to decide the test result.

Do you agree on this?

Best regards,
