idleTimeoutnumberSpecifies the timeout of the commands in seconds.

Default value: 300

const capability = { "LT:Options": {"idleTimeout": "<number>",}}
lambdaMaskCommands

Note: This capability is only applicable for HyperExecute Jobs.
array sendType or sendFill Masks the type method of the ElementHandle and Locator class.

sendPress Masks the press method of the ElementHandle and Locator class.

setHTTPCredentials Masks the HTTP credentials parameter in the newContext and newPage method of the browser class.

setStorageState Masks the storage state parameter in the newContext and newPage method of the browser class

setGeolocation Masks the Geolocation parameter in the newContext and newPage method of the browser class.
const capability = { "LT:Options": {'lambdaMaskCommands': ["sendType", "sendFill", "sendPress", "setHTTPCredentials", "setStorageState", "setGeolocation"]}}

useSpecificBundleVersionBooleanIf set true: LambdaTest will select the playwright server version as per the browser version you have passed in the capabilities. Check the supported browser version list.

If the value set in the browser version capability is supported by multiple Playwright versions, LambdaTest checks your Playwright client version and sets the Playwright version accordingly.


If set false : LambdaTest will run your playwright tests with the same version as setup in your local system and the browser version will also be used the compatible one as per the supported browser version list and not your defined one.
const capabilities = { "LT:Options": {"useSpecificBundleVersion": true,}}

Test across 3000+ combinations of browsers, real devices & OS.
