Device and Author Settings

To enable this feature, set extent.reporter.spark.enable.device and settings value to true in your file.


Using Default Prefix

You need to prefix your devices tags with @dev_ and author with @aut_. These are case insensitive. For example, if your device is an iPhone, use the @dev_iphone tag, and if your author is Adam, use @aut_adam.

@dev_iphone @aut_adam
Scenario: non capture
Given I am on the homepage
    Then I select 1st value
	Then I select 2nd value
	Then I select 3rd value
	Then I select 4th value
@dev_ipad @aut_mark
Scenario: non capture 2
    Given I am on the loginpage

Once you add the tags and execute your scripts, you will see author and device tabs in your extent report.

Here @device_ and @author_ are user defined prefixes; you can use any other.
