How to clear a browser cache in Protractor


In one of my scenario I need to clear a browser cache. I have tried with below one but it won't work.

browser.driver.manage().deleteAllCookies(); browser.executeScript('window.sessionStorage.clear();'); browser.executeScript('window.localStorage.clear();');

Can anyone help me on this?


I use it this way:

function LoginPage() { this.get = function() { browser.get('#/Login'); browser.executeScript('window.localStorage.clear();'); browser.executeScript('window.sessionStorage.clear();'); browser.driver.manage().deleteAllCookies(); } } module.exports = new LoginPage;

then I use this function in any of my test script which every time clears out cookies, session/local storage.

var loginPage = require('.././LoginPage'); loginPage.get();


First of all I suggest doing it in forked browsers which will simplify your debugging efforts

var fork = browser.forkNewDriverInstance(); fork.get('page1');

If you still insist on clearing everything you can restart browser

browser.restart(); // Restart the browser clears everything (careful as it returns Promise) browser.restartSync(); // Same as previous but synchronous == await browser.restart()

Or even better restart fork

fork = fork.restartSync(); fork.get('page2'); // 'page2' gotten by restarted fork

P.S. Not sure which parts you can't clear, but as a last resort I can suggest is incognito mode

capabilities: { 'browserName': 'chrome', 'chromeOptions': { 'args': ['incognito'] } },
