Run/Debug Configuration: JSTestDriver
The dialog box is available when the JSTestDriver plugin is activated. The plugin is not bundled with WebStorm, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
On this page:
In this tab, specify the tests to run, the configuration files to use, and the server to run the tests against.
In this area, tell WebStorm where to find the tests to execute and how to get test runner configuration files that define which test files to load and in which order. The main approaches are:
- Specify the location of one or several previously created configuration files.
- Point at the target test file, test case, or test method, and then specify the location of the corresponding configuration file.
|Test|| In this drop-down list, specify how WebStorm will get test runner configuration files. |
|Directory||In this text box, specify the folder to look for test runner configuration files in. Type the path manually or click Browse and select the required folder in the dialog box, that opens.||All configuration files in directory|
|Matched configuration files|| This read-only field shows a list of all the ||All configuration files in directory|
|Configuration file||In this text box, specify the test runner configuration file to use. Type the path manually or click Browse and select the required file in the dialog box that opens.||Configuration file|
In this area, appoint the test server to run tests against.
|At address||Choose this option to have the test execution handles by a remote test server. In the text box, specify the URL address to access the server through.|
|Running in IDE||Choose this option to have test execution handles through the JSTestDriver server that comes bundled with WebStorm and can be launched from it.|
|Test Connection|| Click this button to check that the specified test server is accessible. |
The server must be running. Start the server from WebStorm or manually, according to the server-specific instructions.
In this tab, appoint the browser to debug the unit test in when two or more browsers are captured simultaneously.
|Debug|| From this drop-down list, choose the browser to debug the specified tests in when two browsers are captured at a time. The available options are: |
In this tab, specify the files that you do not want to be involved in coverage analysis.
|Exclude file path|| In this area, create a list of files to be skipped during coverage analysis. |
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options for it:
|Name||In this text box, specify the name for the run/debug configuration. The name will help you identify the created configuration when you choose to edit it later, or when you invoke it, for example. from the Run popup (Shift+Alt+F10).|
|Share|| Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members. |
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
|Alt+Insert||Create a run/debug configuration.|
|Alt+Delete||Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.|
|Ctrl+D||Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.|
|Edit defaults||View and edit the default template for the selected run/debug configuration. The defaults are used for newly created configurations.|
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
|Move into new folder / Create new folder|| |
You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category to be grouped, click , and specify the name for the folder. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag-and-drop or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
|Sort configurations||Click this button to sort configurations in alphabetical order.|
When you select Defaults in the tree view of the run configurations, you can adjust some settings that apply for all run debug configurations.
|Configurations available in Run Dashboard|| |
In this section you can create a list of run configurations available in the Run Dashboard — tool window that helps you execute and manage multiple run/debug configurations.
Note that the dashboard will only display those configuration types for which you have created one ore more configurations.
|Confirm rerun with process termination||The behavior of this checkbox depends on whether the Single instance only checkbox is selected for a particular run/debug configuration. |
|Temporary configurations limit||Specify here the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.|
Before Launch options
In this area you can specify tasks that should be carried out before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.

|Show this page||Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.|
|Activate tool window|| |
Otherwise, the tool window isn't shown. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing Alt+4 or Alt+5.
