Add own tags to BDD scripts in Zephyr

We use for example tags like @new_session.

This will ensure that a new browser session is created, else reuse the existing one

..or @require_login

This will make sure we have a logged in session.

..or @no_IE.

As a... QA/Tester
I would like... be able to have/use my own tag in the test scripts
So that I... can use the functionality supplied by my test environment, based on tags.

    Addition of custom tags would be a huge step forward for me.

    I have a number of automated execution runs managed by tags (e.g. @Int, @Smoke, @E2E amongst other things) and being able to add these tags in scale and have them included would be a great step

    I have put this in Gathering Interest to see if others are also in need of something similar.

    Thanks again.

    Hi David.

    We just started using Zephyr for Scale and moving test scripts over into Zephyr.

    I currently have to add additional checks in place to cater for the missing tags. But makes test scripts more complicated than really necessary. I can not cater for scenarios yet.

    Hi Kotie,

    Thanks for this idea!

    You mentioned that you are already using tags. So I assume that you are not using Zephyr Scale to write your gherkin script because we do not provide this capability yet. So when you are writing your feature files, are you using tags only for scenarios or also for features?
