Defining Global Testing Defaults

By default, tests are run using global test defaults. These are settings that you define for all tests in the system, and include the default:

  • Browsers & Screen Sizes

  • Login test

  • Time zone

  • The number of parallel testing

Note that you can override the default browsers, screen sizes, and login tests. You can permanently override these defaults, or override them on demand.
If you override some global defaults, the remaining defaults will be used when you run the test, i.e. the test will be run with a combination of global defaults and test settings. For example, if you override the default browsers and screen sizes, the test will use the overriden settings for the specific test while the remaining default settings remain untouched. See Running Tests for more information.

To Define the Global Defaults

  1. In the Navigation bar, select Settings.

  2. Click Browsers & Screen Sizes and define the default browsers and screen sizes.

    If you have an Ultrafast Grid enabled, additional browsers will be available.

  3. Click Defaults and define the default login test, time zone and the number of concurrent tests.
