# Configuration

Note that a detailed explanation for every configuration parameter can be found in Hypertest itself, on the configuration page under the "Description" tab.

# The Basic setup

Before you are able to run any analysis by Hypertest, it needs to be configured. The configuration can be found in the dashboard home. You can generate a "template" that can be edited as per requirement. The configuration tab can be found on the dashboard home.

After generating a template, You need to provide some parameters that are absolutely mandatory for Hypertest to become functional. Following is a list:

  • PRIMARY_BASE_URL: Address of the Primary version of the application.

  • CANDIDATE_BASE_URL: Address of the Candidate version of the application.

  • SERVICE_NAME: The name of the application on which test analyses are run.
