Global setup and teardown

As explained in the doc I am trying to configure a setup and teardown test file.

It works fine only when the setup project is named "setup", any other name doesn't works, I mean it doesn't even appears in the UI.

Also the teardown for the same reason doesn't work.


export default defineConfig({
  testDir: './tests',
  testMatch: '**/*.@(spec|test).?(c|m)[jt]s?(x)', 
  projects: [
      name: 'setup',
      testMatch: /global\.setup\.ts/,
      teardown: 'teardown',
      name: 'teardown',
      testMatch: /global\.teardown\.ts/,
      name: 'chromium',
      use: { ...devices['Desktop Chrome'] },
      dependencies: ['setup'],

This thread is trying to answer question "Why does the setup and teardown configuration only work with specific project names and why don't they appear in the UI?"

Ok.. it seem that they don't appear in the UI , but with headless mode and in the HTML report, I can see teardown is executed..
