Given a Feature with scenario:

Feature: test
    Scenario Outline: Scenario outline - run this scenario with different examples
                      To run one scenario with different set of values use scenario outlines

        Given There is initial <value>
        When I subsctract <subsctractValue>
        Then I should have <resultValue>

    | value | subsctractValue | resultValue |
    |  12   |  5              |  7          |
    |  20   |  5              |  15         |

And step definition

var testSteps = function() {
  var Given  = When = Then = this.defineStep;

  Given(/^There is initial (\d+)$/, function(value, callback) {
      this.value = value;
  When(/^I subsctract (\d+)$/, function(substractValue, callback) {
      this.result = this.value - substractValue;
  Then(/^I should have (\d+)$/, function(result, callback) {
      if (parseInt(result) === this.result) {
      } else {
module.exports = testSteps;

When i run 'cucumber-js --tags @sometag'

Scenario is executed only once with first row of examples

cucumber.js --tags @sometag

1 scenario (1 passed)
4 steps (4 passed)

Expected - scenario should be executed for all examples

  • it doesn't matter where i put my tag - over scenario outline or over examples
akania commented Jun 15, 2014

So it looks like tags are removed here

revealTags: function revealTags() {
      var revealedTags = stashedTags;
      stashedTags      = []; // <- empty array

I'm trying to understand logic behind this, commenting this line helps but all scenarios inherit all tags then..

I run into a similar issue, but in my case, only the last row on the table gets run. Any feedback of how to approach this would be great

What version of cucumber-js are you running? This feature encompasses the current behavior and was added in 0.9.1.


I'm using cucumberjs version: 0.9.2 with nightwatchjs and the cucumber plugin version - 0.6.7. Not sure if the latest help.

Table looks like this:
| extension |
| MLB |
| NBA |

and the step that uses it:
When I click on link ""

I'm adding additional info just in case it helps.

Based on the cucumber plugin changelog scenario outlines weren't supported until 1.2.0.


Yeah, it works now, after updating to a newer version. Apologies I should have checked the changelog.
