Creating an AMP Web Test


  1. Log into AMP.
  2. Navigate to the project you would like the test under via the Projects link on the tertiary navigation bar or the Organization widget.
  3. Select the Tests link in the tertiary navigation bar. If you have existing tests, selecting the Tests link only exposes the drop-down menu. From here, you must activate the View All Tests link.
  4. Select the Create New Test link from the Tests table.
  5. Select Web under the Technology Platform section, and select the Make It Happen button.
  6. Choose the Test Type
    • Spider (Default) - Automatically capture and test pages from a website or application by detecting the hyperlinks found off of the designated start URL.
    • Manual - User-identified modules, or units of content, are captured for testing.
  7. Select the desired Test Configuration, and choose the Save button.
    • CSV - Easily create multiple AMP Tests based on each URL stored within a CSV or Microsoft Excel document
      • After selecting CSV, choose one of the two CSV Spider Options presented: either Create a Single Test, or Create One Test for Each URL.
      • Enter a name for the test in the Test Name field. A name must be entered in this field in order to complete the form.
      • Select the Report Owner from the drop down menu.
      • Download the template available in the link in this Test Configuration setting to create a list of URLs that will be spidered.
      • Populate the Start URL column with all of the URLs that are to be tested.
      • Each resulting AMP Test is created based on the URLs within the Start URL Column. These AMP Tests will use the Advanced Test Configuration settings chosen during the initial AMP Test creation. Users can optionally set values for the remaining columns for each individual Start URL to create AMP Tests with customized Spider parameters.
      • Save the file and upload it back to AMP. The maximum file size that can be uploaded is 0.48 MB.
    • Classic (Default) - AMP will create modules for pages that it finds by spidering from the designated starting URL.
  8. Test Name - Provide a name for this test
  9. Email - The Email address that you would like to have sent a notification when the test is complete
  10. Start URL - The desired starting point for the automated spidering process.
  11. Show Schedule Type (Optional) - Set up the Test to run automatically at the specified interval (i.e., daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly)
  12. Advanced (Optional) - (For additional information regarding the below topics, visit
    • Maximum Page Count - The total number of pages that the spider should attempt to collect.
    • Maximum Depth - Defines the number how much branching out the spider should perform as it runs.
    • Maximum Argument Count - Defines the number of unique argument pages that should be captured for a given base URL.
    • Positive Filters - Defines a regular expression that the spider should follow.
    • Negative Filters - Defines a regular expression that the spider should not follow. These can be used to specify particular pages that you do not want the spider to visit.
    • XPath Exclusion - This field allows you to specify a common 'section' of the site to exclude from being automatically tested.
    • Publish Document Inventory - Selecting this option will cause AMP to catalog any documents (e.g. .pdf, .doc, .txt, .xls, etc) it spiders and create a list of all the documents and the document locations it finds.
    • Scope - Defines the basic restriction on the type of pages that should be spidered.
      • Restrict to Path will ensure that only pages that are present at or below the path of the Start Location will be spidered.
      • Restrict to Host will ensure that only pages that are present on the Start Locations host will be spidered.
      • Restrict to Domain will ensure that only pages that are present on the Start Locations domain will be spidered.
