‘Turbo' mode is applicable only when the tests are configured with browsers compatible with 'Extension' runner mode. If not (e.g. Firefox and Safari), the test will not run in turbo mode, but rather run in 'Selenium’ runner mode).

Running in turbo-mode

Running your tests in turbo-mode can be done either by CLI run or scheduled run. The tests will run in extension mode only (Chrome and Edge Chromium).

When running in turbo-mode the following settings will apply:

  • Step delays will be ignored

  • Test artifacts will only be saved for failed runs and for successful runs they won't be collected:

    • Screenshots
    • Network log
    • Console log
    • DOM data
    • Run parameters
    • Accessibility step report


    There are cases (such as browser crashes) where the data might not be saved, even for failed runs.

Running in turbo-mode via CLI

In order to run in turbo-mode , use --turbo-mode in the CLI command, to read more about CLI runs, see here.
For example:

testim  --token "<YOUR ACCESS TOKEN>" --project "<YOUR PROJECT ID>" --grid "<Your grid name>" --turbo-mode

Running in turbo-mode via scheduler

In order to transform a scheduled run into turbo-mode , select the scheduled run you would like to transform --> go into edit mode --> turn on the turbo-mode toggle.

turbo-mode tests results

  • Test artifacts, as mentioned above, will be available only for failed tests
  • Under executions - turbo-mode indication will appear

  • Under test runs - each test that ran in turbo-mode will have an indication

  • Editor - each result will have an indication on the top left (next to the test status)
