Clear Web Storage

The Clear Web Storage step action clears data in the local and/or session storage. The local and session storages are used by some websites to persist larger amounts of data that can normally be stored in a cookie.

Related Step Actions

The Load Web Storage step action can be used to load new data into the local and/or session storage, or replace existing data. It does not remove the existing data, unless it overwrites it with a new value.

The Extract Web Storage step action is used to extract data from the local and/or session storage.

Properties

The Clear Web Storage action can be configured using the following properties:

Clear Local Storage:
When checked, the storage items from the local storage will be cleared. In a browser, the local storage is normally persisted across browser sessions, similarly to persistent cookies.
Clear Session Storage:
When checked, the storage items from the session storage will be cleared. In a browser, the session storage is normally persisted for as long as the browser window or tab exists, similarly to a session cookie.
Key Pattern:
If you wish to clear only the stored items with a particular key, you can specify a pattern that matches the key of interest. If you leave the field blank, all storage items will be cleared regardless of their keys. If you do specify a pattern, note that it must match the entire key.
Domain Pattern:
If you wish to clear only the stored items that belong to a particular domain, you can specify a pattern that matches the domain of interest. If you leave the field blank, storage items of all domains will be cleared. If you do specify a pattern, note that it must match the entire domain.
