Project Configuration

This page provides information about the TestFLO configuration in the project.

Creating properties in TestFLO (like the steps’ look or permission) can be set differently for every project and it is done by the Project Configuration.


TestFLO Cloud is an app, that can be activated for each project.


To activate TestFLO:

  1. Go to the project view and choose Project settings.
  2. Select TestFLO from the menu.
    TestFLO Cloud: Slider to enable app
  3. Click the TestFLO availability slider.

    There is only one slider, that activates/deactivates the app. It is off by default.


TestFLO is available with all project configuration options.
