Can I allow location, microphone, and camera alert dialogs when recording?

  • Dark

Article Summary

Yes, depending on the execution environment.

On Autify, actions against dialogs that set browser permissions are not recorded (for example, clicking the Allow or Block buttons like in the image below).

During test execution, permissions are automatically set or not selected for each execution environment. For details on permission settings, please see the table below. You cannot change these settings at this time.

Please note that even if location information, microphone, and camera are allowed, Autify currently does not support voice input and testing that uses location information (for example, showing a different list based on location information).

Allow means the permission is force allowed.
Deny means the permission is force blocked.
Unhandled means that the permission is not selected and the test proceeds with the dialog displayed.
