Using the “android/create-avd” step takes about 30 seconds. Although it is mandatory for our scenarios, it is a blocking step. Is there an option to run this in the background, while installing other needed tools on the machine? This can save time (and money).
You could add the
background: true attribute to the step (Configuring CircleCI - CircleCI)
Oh sorry, @Nisim761. I didn’t realize it was an orb command (my bad).
So indeed, the
background attribute is taken as a parameter of that orb command, hence the error you’re getting.
I recommend opening an issue in the orb’s repository.
Thank you @yannCI , I will open an issue in the orb’s repository.
Hi @yannCI, I understood this was implemented, but I do not how to actually run the Create AVD in the background. Can you please help?
