The issue is related to The intellj plugin : Illuminated Cloud (for SFA), the issue is when i make some local changes and want to run some test i keep getting
Test method mehod_name was never reported as completed. Perhaps it doesn't exist on the server?
but when i deploy to the server and then run the tests, it works fine with no issues.
so how do i run the tests locally without first deploying to the server?
Illuminated cloudor any plugin related to Salesforce does not support local changes to run the test, you will have to deploy it to salesforce before running the test.
