Set the test page and variants

Before your A/B test can work, you need to specify what Content Management instance you want to make the test available for.

You can then specify custom names for your variants appearing in Page Builder. Setting meaningful names helps to identify variants in your test results easily. But most importantly, it helps content authors select the right test from the Page Builder interface.

Before you start

Keep your test plan notes nearby to refer to during this tutorial step. You can use the values specified if you decide not to make specific notes. Otherwise, swap out the suggested values with your own when prompted in the steps.


To set the test page destination:

  1. In the Conferences content page asset, select the URLs screen.

  2. Copy the Web Paths > URLs link shown as a hyperlink.

  3. Switch back to the tab containing your A/B test configuration and set the Website domain:

    1. In the Test page section, paste the Content Management instance URL you copied into the Website domain field.

    2. Select Save

    3. Reload (F5) the A/B test in your browser to allow the A/B Testing service to re-check the connection.

    4. You should now notice that the status shows Connected instead of Not connected

  4. You also have the option to set meaningful custom names for your test variations that appear in Page Builder by setting the Variant A and Variant B names in the Variants section. These labels will also be used in the A/B test reporting.

    Think about the names you came up with in your test plan notes and set them here.
    1. For the Variant A > Custom name, set the name to something like Old Conf CTA

    2. For the Variant B > Custom name, set the name to something like New Conf CTA.

  5. Select Save to set the two variant names and continue to the next tutorial step.
