    Announcing Flaky Tests Dashboard Open Beta

    2 min read

    In software development, “flaky tests” refer to automated tests that inconsistently pass or fail without clear reasons, often due to timing issues, dependencies, or external factors. These tests can lead to unreliable build results wasting hundreds of CI/CD build hours.

    Recognizing the disruptive impact of flaky tests, Semaphore is excited to announce the open beta of our Flaky Tests Dashboard, a specialized tool engineered to combat the unpredictability of flaky tests in your CI/CD pipeline.
