Journeys - Provide failure reason as comment

When running my plans sometimes a journey fails and I will look through the output to discover why it failed. However if someone else on my team also wanted to figure out why they'd have to do the same, wasting the same time. (Plus sometimes the same person has to look again because they can't remember why every journey fails)


Instead I'd like the ability to add a comment to a journey when it fails, giving a reason to it's failure. Here I could mention why it failed or if I've raised a bug for it with the bug ID etc. Anyone else who wanted to know the reason for failure could then easily understand from the comment left. This comment would also show next to the journey on the plan history section.

    You and your team can now add comments to test failures so that you can keep everyone in the know and work together on debugging issues. You can also use the comments to add links to related tests, Pull Requests, or Jira tickets. Release notes.

    A comment field would also be important for us.

    Then a plan fails, it takes a moment to analyse and understand, it's important to be able to document the situation more than with only a category, it will save time to anybody who visits the failed run and needs to understand that fail too.

    There's now an option to classify test (former journey) failures based on several predefined categories (learn more). We will consider adding an option for comments and update this request accordingly.
