Handling duplicate links with Capybara and Cucumber
Sometimes, you might have duplicate links on a page. Trying to click those links will by default cause Capybara to raise an
Ambiguous match error.
If you do not care about which of those links are clicked, you can disable this errors by adding the following meta step:
When(/^(.*) \[allow ambiguous\]$/)do |step_text| prior_match_strategy = Capybara.match Capybara.match = :first step(step_text) ensure Capybara.match = prior_match_strategy end
Use it with
When I follow "a duplicate link" [allow ambiguous]
