Test filter files


This directory contains files that list tests that are not yet ready to run in a particular mode. For example - the site-per-process.content_browsertests.filter file lists tests that should be excluded when running content_browsertests in --site-per-process mode.

File syntax

Contents of test filter files follow the syntax below:

  • Empty lines are ignored.
  • Any text after ‘#’ on each line is treated as comments and ignored.
  • All other lines specify a single test name pattern.
    • Negative patterns: Patterns prefixed with the ‘-’ character specify tests to exclude from a test run.
    • Positive patterns: All other patterns specify tests to include in a test run.

A test will be executed if and only if it matches any of the positive patterns but does not match any of the negative patterns (please see documentation of --gtest_filter for more details and examples).

Please see [] for discussion how “positive” and “negative” test patterns should be combined in presence of both the --gtest_filter and the --test-launcher-filter-file command line flags.

Example test filter file for excluding a set of tests:

# Get tests working w/ --site-per-process

# Get extension browsertests working w/ --site-per-process


When running tests on desktop platforms, the test filter file can be specified using --test-launcher-filter-file command line flag. Example test invocation:

$ out/dbg/content_browsertests \
    --site-per-process \

When running tests on Android, the test filter file can also be specified using --test-launcher-filter-file command line flag. Example test invocation:

$ out/android/bin/run_content_browsertests \
    --site-per-process \


Test filter files described here are currently only supported for gtest-based tests.

For excluding layout tests when running with a particular command line flag, see third_party/WebKit/LayoutTests/FlagExpectations/README.txt.

Adding new test filter files

Please use the following conventions when naming the new file:

  • Please include the name of the test executable (e.g. content_browsertests).
  • Please use .filter suffix.
  • Feel free to add other relevant things into the file name (e.g. the mode the file applies to - for example site-per-process).

When adding a new file, please update //testing/buildbot/filters/
