Global Defaults

Tests in Preflight can have global defaults. You can set global defaults by:

  1. Go to Test Settings
  2. Click ‘Browsers’
  3. Click the checkbox next to each browser you wish to use for all tests by default.
  4. You’re all set.

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:

  1. Go to the test you want to edit
  2. Click the ‘browsers’ dropdown in the test settings (towards the top)
  3. Select the browsers you want this test to use
  4. You’re all set.

You can also change tests settings in bulk, by using the bulk edit bar on ‘all tests’ or from a 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. 

  1. Go to All Tests
  2. Select the tests you wish to test, or leave them if you want to test all.
  3. Click ‘Run All Tests’
  4. Select the browsers you wish to test
  5. Click ‘Run All Tests Now’

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