Test setup that has extensive long wait time

Hi everyone, I have a test where it requires a few creation process in another microservice. Once the creation is finished, it takes a varied amount of time (30s to 2mins) to present the changes in my service.

In this situation, how do you guys usually tackle the test? My previous attempt has been to use wait 60s, after the creation to commence the test.

This thread is trying to answer question "How to tackle a test setup that requires a long wait time due to a creation process in another microservice?"

perhaps leverage project dependencies with a project that sets that up for you with the necessary testTimeout: https://playwright.dev/docs/test-global-setup-teardown#project-dependencies

IMHO, do not use hard timeouts because if your setup takes 30s, you'd always wait for 2 minutes or more regardless. Better to leverage expects or waitFor() to make sure you move as soon as the desired state is achieved

Thanks Andre, that makes sense

Specifcally take a look at expect.poll() https://playwright.dev/docs/test-assertions#expectpoll
