#2

I think the URL is stored in a variable called “url”, like in the example, try that.


#3

I can’t understand what is the solution. I know the url should be the variable with the value of the URL. But I can’t see where it is assigned or for that matter what value to assign to it.

I think it is defined by the testing framework, behind the scenes. Don’t worry about it.
