Given user is on login page
When user enters valid username and password

Runner File:
package runner;

import org.junit.runner.RunWith;

import io.cucumber.junit.Cucumber;
import io.cucumber.junit.CucumberOptions;

@CucumberOptions(features = “src/test/resources/feature”, glue=“Stepdefinition”,
plugin = “io.testproject.sdk.internal.reporting.extensions.cucumber.CucumberReporter”)
public class CucumberRunner {


Step definition:
package Stepdefinition;

public class Login {

ChromeDriver driver = null;
//ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

@Given("user is on login page")
public void user_is_on_login_page() throws MalformedURLException {
	System.out.println("I am in one");
	driver = new DriverBuilder<ChromeDriver>(new ChromeOptions())
			.withRemoteAddress(new URL("http://localhost:8585"))

@When("user enters valid username and password")

Can you please send your Agent logs to our support email?


You can download the zip file from the Agents section:


If your Agent is not registered, you can find the logs in the following directories:

  1. Windows: C:\Users{your_user}\AppData\Roaming\TestProject\Agent\logs
  2. MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/TestProject/Agent/logs
  3. Linux: .testproject directory under home (default installation directory).

The error message in itself means that the correct driver for your browser version is missing.

The Agent usually downloads them automatically, but in case your Agent is either offline or unregistered, it will not be able to do so.

We added a clear message for this in Agent version 2.3.3 and it should be visible in the IDE’s console.
Which Agent version are you using?

If you are working offline, you can follow the details here to fix the problem, there is a section about placing drivers manually:

Meanwhile, I’ll attempt to reproduce the issue locally with a Cucumber Chrome test.

Thanks, I was able to check the issue. The Agent was in disconnected status. After fixing it all started working
