I'm using an automation and I'd like to disable all activities for the automation runs.

I know we can use the mboxDisable=1 parameter in the URL to hide any activities on the page.  Is there something we can set to disable the activities for the entire session as it clicks from page to page?  

 

Thanks,

nik

If you are using the latest at.js (version 0.9.6 or later) you can set a session cookie that will disable mboxes. From the browser console you can run: document.cookie = "mboxDisable=1; path=/";

Hope that helps!

Hi,

The use-case doesn't looks to be the ideal one.However we can probably  think of some alternatives like probably turning off global mbox setting in mbox.js.

That sounds like exactly what we are looking for, unfortunately, we're on the mbox.js implementation.

I'll look into upgrading.  I'm not sure why we're not using at.js 😞

Hi Nik,

As far as I know, you can't disable it as you would like, but I see why you want it. Could you setup your automated test, to re-map the at.js/mbox.js file to a empty js-file on your site, to avoid requests to target?

Thanks for the reply.

Is there a way to turn off the global mbox just for the current session?

The desire is to have an automated test run on the production site.  There are specific things it will look for that may get disrupted by AB testing and we want to avoid that.
