Creating a plan to run tests

Plans, along with tests, make up two of the core features of mabl. A plan runs all of the tests that it contains, which can be as many or as few as you need, in parallel. Additionally, plan contains all of the information that tests need to run such as, but not limited to: URLs, browsers, and the specific timing triggers. Find specific information about defining a plan below.
