The timeout you specify here needs to be shorter than the default timeout.

The default timeout is 5000 and the framework by default is jasmine in case of jest. You can specify the timeout inside the test by adding


But this would be specific to the test. Or you can set up the configuration file for the framework.

Configuring Jest

// jest.config.js
module.exports = {
  // setupTestFrameworkScriptFile has been deprecated in
  // favor of setupFilesAfterEnv in jest 24
  setupFilesAfterEnv: ['./jest.setup.js']

// jest.setup.js

setTimeout per test #5055

Make jasmine.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_INTERVAL configurable #652

P.S.: The misspelling setupFilesAfterEnv (i.e. setupFileAfterEnv) will also throw the same error.
