Change the content test strategy


We recommend that you keep the Subgroup Round Robin Sticky strategy as the default content test strategy but you can change it.

We recommend that you do not change the default test strategy because the Subgroup Round Robin Sticky strategy is the most effective strategy in all situations. However, if you want, you can change the default test strategy or you can change the strategy for a single test.

To change the default test strategy:

  1. In the Sitecore.ContentTesting.config file, go to the following section:

               The default content test strategy.
               Default value: /sitecore/system/Settings/Content Testing/Test Strategies/Subgroup Round Robin Sticky
          <setting name="ContentTesting.TestStrategy" value="/sitecore/system/Settings/Content Testing/Test Strategies/Subgroup
    Round Robin Sticky" />
  2. Replace Subgroup Round Robin Sticky with the name of the test strategy that you want to use.

Alternatively, you can change the strategy for a single test in the Content Editor.

To change the strategy for a single test:

  1. Start the test.

  2. In the Content Editor, in the Test Lab folder (/sitecore/system/Marketing Control Panel/Test Lab/), on the test definition item, click Unprotect item.

  3. In the Test Strategy field, select another strategy from the drop-down menu.

  4. Publish the changes.

  5. In the Content Editor ribbon, on the Configure tab, in the Attributes group, click Protect Item.
