Prerequisites for Replaying Tests with Google Chrome

Command-line parameters

When you use Google Chrome to replay a test or to record locators, Google Chrome is started with the following command:

When you use the wizard to hook on to an application, these command-line parameters are automatically added to the base state. If an instance of Google Chrome is already running when you start testing, without the appropriate command-line parameters, Silk Test Workbench closes Google Chrome and tries to restart the browser with the command-line parameters. If the browser cannot be restarted, an error message displays.

Note: The command-line parameter disable-web-security is required when you want to record or replay cross-domain documents.
Note: To test a web application that is stored in the local file system, navigate to the chrome://extensions in Google Chrome and check the Allow access to file URLs check box for the Silk Test Chrome Extension.
