public class Configuration extends Object
Configuration settings for Selenide default browser
This class is designed so that every setting can be set either via system property or programmatically.
Please note that all fields are static, meaning that every change will immediately reflect in all threads (if you run tests in parallel).

These system properties can be additonally used having effect on every new created browser in test. For example as -D<property>=<value> in command-line

chromeoptions.args - Sets the arguments for chrome options, parameters are comma separated If comma is a part of the value, use double quotes around the argument Non-official list of parameters can be found at https://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/ Example: --no-sandbox,--disable-3d-apis,"--user-agent=Firefox 45, Mozilla"

chromeoptions.prefs - Sets the preferences for chrome options, which are comma separated keyX=valueX preferences. If comma is a part of the value, use double quotes around the preference List of preferences can be found at https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/chrome/common/pref_names.cc Example: homepage=http://google.com,"intl.allowed_languages=en,ru,es"

      Default value: new MutableCapabilities()
    • pageLoadStrategy

      public static String pageLoadStrategy
      Should webdriver wait until page is completely loaded. Possible values: "none", "normal" and "eager".
      Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.pageLoadStrategy=eager". Default value: "normal".
      - `normal`: return after the load event fires on the new page (it's default in Selenium webdriver); - `eager`: return after DOMContentLoaded fires; - `none`: return immediately
      In some cases `eager` can bring performance boosts for the slow tests. Though, we left default value `normal` because we are afraid to break users' existing tests.
      See https://w3c.github.io/webdriver/webdriver-spec.html#dfn-page-loading-strategy
      Since:
      3.5
    • pageLoadTimeout

      public static long pageLoadTimeout
      Timeout for loading a web page (in milliseconds). Default timeout in Selenium WebDriver is 300 seconds (which is incredibly long). Selenide default is 30 seconds.
      Since:
      5.15.0
    • clickViaJs

      public static boolean clickViaJs
      ATTENTION! Automatic WebDriver waiting after click isn't working in case of using this feature. Use clicking via JavaScript instead common element clicking. This solution may be helpful for testing in Internet Explorer. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.clickViaJs=true".
      Default value: false
    • screenshots

      Default value: true
    • reportsFolder

      public static String reportsFolder
      Folder to store screenshots to. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.reportsFolder=test-result/reports".
      Default value: "build/reports/tests" (this is default for Gradle projects)

      public static String downloadsFolder
      Folder to store downloaded files to. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.downloadsFolder=test-result/downloads".
      Default value: "build/downloads" (this is default for Gradle projects)
    • reportsUrl

      public static String reportsUrl
      Optional: URL of CI server where reports are published to. In case of Jenkins, it is "BUILD_URL/artifact" by default.
      Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.reportsUrl=http://jenkins-host/reports".
      If it's given, names of screenshots are printed as "http://ci.mycompany.com/job/my-job/446/artifact/build/reports/tests/my_test.png" - it's useful to analyze test failures in CI server.
    • fastSetValue

      public static boolean fastSetValue
      If set to true, sets value by javascript instead of using Selenium built-in "sendKey" function (that is quite slow because it sends every character separately).
      Tested on Codeborne projects - works well, speed up ~30%. Some people reported 150% speedup (because sending characters one-by-one was especially slow via network to Selenium Grid on cloud).
      https://github.com/selenide/selenide/issues/135 Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.fastSetValue=true".
      Default value: false
    • selectorMode

      public static SelectorMode selectorMode

      Choose how Selenide should retrieve web elements: using default CSS or Sizzle (CSS3).


      Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.selectorMode=Sizzle".


      Possible values: "CSS" or "Sizzle"
      Default value: CSS

      Assertion mode

      Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.assertionMode=SOFT".


      Possible values: "STRICT" or "SOFT"
      Default value: STRICT
      See Also:
    • fileDownload

      public static FileDownloadMode fileDownload
      Defines if files are downloaded via direct HTTP or vie selenide embedded proxy server Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.fileDownload=PROXY"
      Default: HTTPGET
    • proxyEnabled

      public static boolean proxyEnabled
      If Selenide should run browser through its own proxy server. It allows some additional features which are not possible with plain Selenium. But it's not enabled by default because sometimes it would not work (more exactly, if tests and browser and executed on different machines, and "test machine" is not accessible from "browser machine"). If it's not your case, I recommend to enable proxy. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.proxyEnabled=true"
      Default: false
    • proxyHost

      public static String proxyHost
      Host of Selenide proxy server. Used only if proxyEnabled == true. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.proxyHost=127.0.0.1"
      Default: empty (meaning that Selenide will detect current machine's ip/hostname automatically)
      See Also:
      • ClientUtil.getConnectableAddress()
    • proxyPort

      public static int proxyPort
      Port of Selenide proxy server. Used only if proxyEnabled == true. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.proxyPort=8888"
      Default: 0 (meaning that Selenide will choose a random free port on current machine)
    • driverManagerEnabled

      public static boolean driverManagerEnabled
      Controls Selenide and WebDriverManager integration. When integration is enabled you don't need to download and setup any browser driver executables. See https://github.com/bonigarcia/webdrivermanager for WebDriverManager configuration details. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.driverManagerEnabled=false"
      Default: true
    • webdriverLogsEnabled

      public static boolean webdriverLogsEnabled

      Whether webdriver logs should be enabled.

      These logs may be useful for debugging some webdriver issues. But in most cases they are not needed (and can take quite a lot of disk space), that's why don't enable them by default.

      Default: false
      Since:
      5.18.0
    • headless

      public static boolean headless
      Enables the ability to run the browser in headless mode. Works only for Chrome(59+) and Firefox(56+). Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.headless=true"
      Default: false
    • browserBinary

      public static String browserBinary
      Sets the path to browser executable. Works only for Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Can be configured either programmatically, via selenide.properties file or by system property "-Dselenide.browserBinary=/path/to/binary"
