Ability to provide a timeout for script execution/repetetion

0 Votes

Silktest Workbench:

Timeout for a repetition would be great

Background: My test starts after the software was build and has been deployed into a kind of container. But it lasts some time until the version is available. If the version is not available I have to force another update of this container by clicking on a certain button and look again after 5 mins. This whole process should take no longer than 2 hours. Then the test shall send an error. So currently I have solved it with using labels (24 in summary) but I would like handel it with a repetition and timeout setting.

using the “WaitForObject()” or “Exists()” method doesn't help in this case, because I have to jump every time back into this update routine
