Don’t expect promises toBeTruthy()
Don’t write expectations like this:
Promises are always truthy, so this assertion will never fail. Usually, the
intention was to match the result of the promise. If that’s the case, simply
In Protractor tests
If you’re not writing a Protractor test, you can safely ignore this section.
In the past, Protractor tests have patched
expect() to automatically unwrap
promises, which made these assertions work as expected without needing an
await. However, the control flow is deprecated and will be removed in
Selenium WebDriver 4.0, and these assertions are now a bug. You’ll
await the promise as above.
If you can’t
await the promise because your tests need the control flow, you
can use a more specific matcher.
This assertion will work as expected for now and will fail when the control flow is finally removed.
