Executing the failed test multiple times in SpecFlow

When you use the SpecFlow runner to execute the tests, a special type of file with name default.srprofile is created in the project.

In this file, we can configure one parameter called as StopAfterFailure which can be used to re-execute the failed tests.

So if we set the value of this parameter as 2, SepcFlow runner will execute the scenario 2 times in case the scenario fails in the first run. If you set that parameter as 3, scenario will be executed 3 times in case scenario fails in first 2 runs and so on.

Below image shows the sample default.srprofile file and stopAfterFailures parameter as well.

This setting is very important for running the flaky scenarios where environments are not reliable.
