How do I automate the dismissal of the geolocation dialog in my app using Playwright?


Dismissing Geolocation Dialog with Playwright

To automate the dismissal of the geolocation dialog in your app with Playwright, you'll need to adjust the permissions in your browser context.

Setting Up Permissions

In your playwright.config.ts file, define the permissions for your tests. To dismiss the geolocation dialog, set geolocation permissions to an empty array:

import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';

export default defineConfig({
  use: {
    permissions: ['geolocation'],

By doing this, you're granting geolocation permission to your browser context.

Clearing Permissions

Next, in your test file (tests/example.spec.ts), clear all permissions before running any tests using context.clearPermissions():

import { test } from '@playwright/test';

test.beforeEach(async ({ context }) => {
  await context.clearPermissions();

// Your tests go here...

This revokes all previously granted permissions.

Now, when you run your tests, the geolocation dialog should be dismissed automatically as no specific location is provided. This lets you check if your app works without geolocation data.

Remember, this solution is based on the information provided. If your app or framework has additional details or requirements, please provide more context for further assistance.
