Although I know I can access the tags associated with features & scenarios from within step definitions, is it possible to access the tag(s), if any, defined on the command line from within step definitions ? I’d rather run tests based on defined tags rather than defining an environment variable to essentially perform the same, or similar, duty.

Many TIA ,

Hi Dave,

There is currently no way to access the tags passed to the command line. I’m not sure what you’re hoping to achieve if you could.

I suggest posting a question to the Cucumber mailing list ( and describe what you’re trying to achieve. There are many people there who may be able to help you.

Cheers, Aslak
