Software testing permanently deals with the bugs and errors detection. It is well-known that the defects differ because of their severity: starting from the trivial and ending with the most severe ones.

Executing website testing, mobile testing, functional testing, user interface testing or any other type of checking, a tester may face a challenge of the system incapacity to reproduce a certain function.

That is more likely a “blocker” error which always breaks the test procedure and baffles a tester. Undoubtedly, a specialist tries to find the way out of this situation in order to continue testing, but it often happens that there is not any opportunity to proceed to testing.

So is it possible or not to continue the test process in the case of the blocker error?

What Should Be Taken in the Case of the Blocker Defect?

  • Spend some time for the primal cause determination. The performance of this stage will significantly simplify not only a tester’s activity but also the following bug fixing process, provided by the developers. A tester should uncover the character of this error in order to understand whether it is really worth noticing by the developer or not.
  • One should not dwell on the error. It is of great importance not to spend too many hours for the blocker error and be able to provide a manager with the available information in a good time.
  • Proceed finding the way out. A tester should check whether a defect affects the other system elements, additionally examine an available specification, and try to fulfil automated testing on the certain part of the project if manual testing takes much time.
