The "Ensure Behat batching" is Task Runner command that ensures Behat features are properly tagged for batched execution by special batch tag "@batch[BATCH_NUMBER]". This tag is used to divide tests execution on few parallel processes.


Require the command as a dev dependency:

composer require --dev openeuropa/task-runner-ensure-behat-batching


Make sure to always run the following command, after adding files and scenarios into Behat tests:

./vendor/bin/run behat:ensure-batching --path=FOLDER_WITH_TESTS

Step debugging

To enable step debugging from the command line, pass the XDEBUG_SESSION environment variable with any value to the Docker container:

docker-compose exec -e XDEBUG_SESSION=1 web <your command>

Please note that, starting from XDebug 3, a connection error message will be outputted in the console if the variable is set but your client is not listening for debugging connections. The error message will cause false negatives for PHPUnit tests.

To initiate step debugging from the browser, set the correct cookie using a browser extension or a bookmarklet like the ones generated at
