codegen using logged in user ?

Hello 👋 , is there a way to create a new playwright script using codegen from a already logged in state? I have a setup project that logs in and 2fa authorizes, so I am trying to create many new scripts from that point on and don't want to login and authorize every time. Thanks for the advice!

Hi Sam!

Did u try to use npx playwright codegen --save-storage=/storage/userStorageState.json ?

And in your test you can use test.use({ storageState: './storage/userStorageState.json' });


Hi, storage state is a good suggestion from pandahora. Especially for eventually running the tests and skipping the authentication.

For recording the tests from a logged in state, you can (also?) use: https://playwright.dev/docs/running-tests#debug-tests-with-the-playwright-inspector

Also the Playwright extension in vscode allows you to 'record at cursor'.

thanks fo the advice, i'll give those a try!
