In some cases it may be possible to suppress a failure at the step level and carry on with the rest of the script. When you switch on step-level suppression for a particular failure, Testimony will mark the step as successful and attempt to continue with the rest of the script.
There are two steps involved in deciding whether or not a failure is suitable for step-level suppression. Firstly, of course, you need to have determined that this is a failure that should be ignored in subsequent Testimony playbacks. The examples given above should help you to determine this, based on some common types of defects.
The second step is to determine whether or not it would be possible for the script to continue, given the defect that has been raised.
