Cancel active tests

Abstract

How to cancel content tests before they stop automatically.

Page tests and basic content tests stop automatically after enough data has been gathered for a winner to be picked. However, multivariate and personalization tests will continue running if the user who started the test does not take action to finalize it. Therefore, you might sometimes want to manually cancel active tests. For example, before upgrading your Sitecore solution, you must cancel all active tests.

To stop active tests:

  1. In the Experience Optimization application, open the Active Tests list.
