What is the function of testConfig.project.name in Playwright?


Using testConfig.project.name in @playwright/test

The testConfig.project.name feature in Playwright lets you set a project name for your tests. This name is visible in the report and during test execution. It's a handy way to differentiate between multiple projects when running them simultaneously.

Configuring testConfig.project.name

You can set up this feature in the playwright.config.ts file. Here's a simple example:

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

const config: PlaywrightTestConfig = {
  projects: [
      name: 'Project A',
      // other configurations...
      name: 'Project B',
      // other configurations...

export default config;

Once you've set up your projects, you can run tests on all projects or just a specific one. This feature also allows you to run the same tests with different configurations.

Why use testConfig.project.name?

Using testConfig.project.name makes it easier to identify which project each test belongs to when viewing test reports. It's especially useful when you're running a group of tests with different timeouts, retries, or against different environments like staging and production.

So, start using testConfig.project.name in your Playwright tests today. It's a small change that can make a big difference in how you manage and run your tests.

Thank you!
