describe( name, function )

describe is a wrapper of group that adds the ability to:

  • Catch exceptions to allow continuing the execution outside of the describe function.
  • Returns a boolean to indicate the success of all its k6chaijs assertions.
describe-example.js
import { describe, expect } from 'https://jslib.k6.io/k6chaijs/4.3.4.2/index.js';
export default function testSuite() {
const success1 = describe('Basic test', () => {
expect(1, 'number one').to.equal(1);
});
console.log(success1); // true
const success2 = describe('Another test', () => {
throw 'Something entirely unexpected happened';
});
console.log(success2); // false
const success3 = describe('Yet another test', () => {
expect(false, 'my vaule').to.be.true();
});
console.log(success3); // false
}

Chaining describe() blocks

If you want to skip the execution of the following describe blocks, consider chaining them using && as shown below.

import { describe, expect } from 'https://jslib.k6.io/k6chaijs/4.3.4.2/index.js';
export default function testSuite() {
describe('Basic test', () => {
expect(1, 'number one').to.equal(1);
}) &&
describe('Another test', () => {
throw 'Something entirely unexpected happened';
}) &&
describe('Yet another test', () => {
// the will not be executed because the prior block returned `false`
expect(false, 'my vaule').to.be.true();
})
}
