When you first login to Blazemeter, your view will be of tests in your default project, within your default workspace, which is in turn within your default account.
There can be any number of reasons why you may want your initial view after logging in to default to somewhere else. For example, if you have a personal account but have also joined an organization's account (after having been invited to the account), you may want to change your default so that you always see the organization's account when you first login instead of your own account.
Note: Have you accepted an invite to an organization's account, but still only see your account? Chances are you successfully joined the account, but your view still defaults to your own account. You can switch account views to the newly-joined account (and back) by clicking on the accounts drop-down menu (this dropdown menu will only be visible if you have more than one account):
To change your default view so you always see a specific account upon logging in, follow these steps:
- Click on the cog symbol in the top right corner of the screen to open the settings menu.
- Navigate to Personal Settings, under the Personal category.
Note: Your view may or may not include the other categories pictured above, depending on your user's permissions level.
- Review the Default Test Location configuration.
- Click the pencil icon beside "Default project" to edit it, then enter the Project ID (more details further below) of the project you want as the default instead.
- Click the checkmark button to verify the change.
Unsure why you need the Project ID to change the Account ID? This is because your default view when you first login is of your default project as designated above. Each workspace has its own default project, and each account has different workspaces. Specifying the Project ID therefore by extension also selects that project's parent workspace and the account to which it belongs as the default workspace and account.
To find the Project ID, simply navigate to the Projects menu in the navigation bar. Once you have navigated to your desired project, you can then find the Project ID in the URL shown in your browser. The ID is the number following immediately after the workspaces/ segment of the URL, which will look like this:
(All numbers in the above example have been replaced by "x" characters.)
Note: You can also find Project IDs via the API.
