Driver.resetApp() question

Hello friends,

Locally in my script when I do a driver.resetApp() it closed the app and then reopens it which is perfectly fine.
My problem is that when it runs on our (cloud-based) CI tool…whenever it encounters that command it uninstalls/reinstalls the app, instead of just closing and reopening.
Could someone please advise? FYI…I am using driver.resetApp() after every scenario in my Test cases.


how you start Appium locally and how it is starting in cloud? What keys? What version?

Thanks @Aleksei. Actually I have posted that detail at PageFactory PageObjectModel issues

Do you need me to repost it? I am locally on Appium 1.5.1. The cloud version of it is 1.5.2. Plz let me know if you need more details.

anything on this @Aleksei ?


no idea sorry.

try combination of true/false with driver capabilities:

  • MobileCapabilityType.FULL_RESET
  • MobileCapabilityType.NO_RESET
