Issue/Introduction

When creating a GUI Functional test and have it run on a private location, it may happen that you want the test to run on a particular browser (Firefox or Chrome) version, yet it is not listed in the browser selection:

What needs to be done to have the version listed that the test needs to run on?

Cause

The private location does not have that particular browser version installed. So you need to install it on the agents listed under that private location.

Environment

Blazemeter SaaS

Resolution

  • Go to Settings (in the top right corner) > Workspace > Private Locations.
  • Then select the private location that the test needs to run on and press the pencil in the top right corner.

  • In the resulting window, select Functionalities.
  • Open the drop downbox behind GUI Functional and choose "select version":

 

  • On the results, scroll down and select the browser version of your choice, then press the Apply button at the bottom.
