Test List Setting Unexpected Dialog Action Handling Options


Is it possible to select what type of handing is set for the unexpected dialog in the Test List settings?

The current options provided are either "Do not handle", "Handle and continue" or "Handle and fail test". Whenever we choose "Handle and continue" or "Handle and fail test", can we also choose what kind of handling it is? Either to click "OK", "CANCEL", etc. just like the options to be selected in Test Step.

My AUT often checks for user inactivity and will automatically log off if there is no more screen activity performed. Sometimes the recorded test is to wait for a certain element to appear once a certain process is completed. But there are times the process takes longer time than the screen activity auto logout timeout.

However, before the logout, there will be a dialog prompted for user's confirmation, either to stay on page or directly log out if no response on the dialog for more than 1 minute.

But there is no further handling option to be set in the Test List settings, so normally the logged in user account will be directly logged off due to unable to click "OK" in the dialog prompt. This cause a lot of test cases to fail for wrong reason.

Therefore, please do kindly consider to add in the options to select what type of dialog handling in the Test List settings.

Thank you.
