BeforeEachScenario

SYNOPSIS#

Defines a ScriptBlock hook to run before each scenario to set up the test environment

SYNTAX#

All (Default)#

BeforeEachScenario [-Script] <ScriptBlock> [<CommonParameters>]

Tags#

BeforeEachScenario [-Tags] <String[]> [-Script] <ScriptBlock> [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION#

BeforeEachScenario hooks are run before each scenario that is in (or above) the folder where the hook is defined.

You should not normally need this, because it overlaps significantly with the "Background" feature in the gherkin language.

This is a convenience method, provided because unlike traditional RSpec Pester, there is not a simple test script where you can put setup and clean up.
