Although Cycle is designed to provide the best user experience with minimal configuration, some settings may still need to be tweaked for optimal execution in a given environment. Below is an explanation of some of the key settings.
There are three main types of settings that can be adjusted:
- Project-Level Settings - These settings affect Cycle's execution and are saved to a
.cycprojfile that can be shared as part of a Project.
- User Settings - These private Project-level settings are for webdrivers, reporting, and known hosts. These settings are saved to a
.cycuserfile that should not be shared as part of a Project.
- Application Preferences - These private application-wide settings are for your license, Editor options, and proxy connection.
Project and User Settings
These settings are accessed from the Project Directory by clicking the gear button in the upper left corner:

Cycle'a Application Preferences can be opened from the Edit > Preferences menu item or with the
CTRL+, keyboard shortcut.
