function assume(bool) external;


If the boolean expression evaluates to false, the fuzzer will discard the current fuzz inputs and start a new fuzz run.

The assume cheatcode should mainly be used for very narrow checks. Broad checks will slow down tests as it will take a while to find valid values, and the test may fail if you hit the max number of rejects.

You can configure the rejection thresholds by setting fuzz.max_test_rejects in your foundry.toml file.

For broad checks, such as ensuring a uint256 falls within a certain range, you can bound your input with the modulo operator or Forge Standard's bound method.

More information on filtering via assume can be found here.


// Good example of using assume
function testSomething(uint256 a) public {
    vm.assume(a != 1);
    require(a != 1);
    // [PASS]
// In this case assume is not a great fit, so you should bound inputs manually
function testSomethingElse(uint256 a) public {
    a = bound(a, 100, 1e36);
    require(a >= 100 && a <= 1e36);
    // [PASS]
