Basically need to run same set of TCs on two different URLs with same minor differences in behaviour. have test.describe block inside data.forEach is a no go for me. Looking for inputs like to execute in different steps per URL and then merging the generated HTML report.

This thread is trying to answer question "How can the same set of test cases be run on two different URLs with minor differences in behavior?"

you can create different configs pointing to different .env files and then use the configs when running PW depending on the URL you want to use


Can you quote an example for the same. Was thinking of running the scripts twice with different .env files as well but didn't proceed as it would create two set of Playwright reports / would need to look at a way to merge the reports

lets say I have qa and staging environments. I have 2 config files for the 2 of them i.e. qa.config.ts and staging.config.ts. I also have 2 .env files i.e qa.env and staging.env. qa.config.ts is linked to qa.env and the staging.config.ts is linked to staging.env. Then when I run the test, I am passing the --config parameter.

@lucky_rabbit_44106 please review this is how we achieved it https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GQStVI5qbLI
