How to create a plan
To create a new plan, take the following steps:
- Click on Plans in the left-hand navigation.
- Click on the + New plan button.
- At a minimum, define the plan name, environment and application, and the tests you want to include in the plan. See the plan settings article for a full list of settings that you can configure for a plan, such as device settings and plan triggers.
- Click on the Save plan button to create the plan.
How to edit a plan
To edit an existing plan, take the following steps:
- Navigate to the plan details page for the plan you want to edit.
- Click on the pencil icon to open the edit plan page.
- Update plan settings as needed.
- Click on the Save plan button to update the plan.
Editing a plan
When you create a new application, mabl creates two plans to monitor and learn about your application: "Verify home page load and login" and "Check all pages for broken links and errors." Most settings for these default plans cannot be changed.
For more information on editing the plan "Check all pages for broken links and errors," also known as the link crawler, see the article on link crawler settings.
How to turn off a plan
When the toggle is set to on, the plan runs according to its configured triggers. When the toggle is off, the plan ignores its plan triggers. Both active and inactive plans can be triggered manually.
For more information on the different ways to run a plan, see the article on triggering plan runs.
How to delete a plan
To delete a plan, navigate to the plan details page and click on the trash icon.
Deleting a plan
It is not possible to delete the default mabl-created plans, including "Verify home page load and login" and "Check all pages for broken links and errors." These plans are system-generated when you create an application and system-deleted when you delete the application.
