Global Defaults

Tests in PreFlight can have global defaults. You can set global defaults by going to Test Settings > Browsers page. Click the checkbox next to each browser you wish to use for all tests by default.

These settings will only apply to tests with global settings enabled. By default, all tests adhere to global settings and can be overridden on a test-by-test basis.

Overriding Global Defaults

Now you’ve set your global defaults, you may find tests you want to run on more or fewer browsers. You can override the global defaults by going to the test you want to edit then clicking the Browsers dropdown in the test settings options (towards the top).

Deselect Use Global Defaults and then select the browsers you want this test to use.

You can also change tests settings in bulk, by using the bulk edit bar on the All Tests or from a test group page.

Testing on Specific Browsers - One Off

You, of course, also have the option to test on any browser combination you wish, on-demand. Go to the All Tests page then select the tests you wish to test, or leave them if you want to test all. Click the Run All Tests dropdown and choose the custom settings option. In the browsers section select the browsers you wish to test on. Then click the Run All Tests Now button which is located at the bottom of the page.

And there you have it! Your tests will run with the browsers you want without overwriting your global defaults or test-specific settings.
