// You can force the browser session (not user's sessions) to restart after N seconds. This could
// be useful if you are using a cloud-based service with time restrictions in the browser side.
// Setting this value the browser session that Behat is using will be restarted. Set the time in
// seconds. Is not recommended to use this setting if you don't explicitly need it.
// Example:
// $CFG->behat_restart_browser_after = 7200; // Restarts the browser session after 2 hours
// All this page's extra Moodle settings are compared against a white list of allowed settings
// (the basic and behat_* ones) to avoid problems with production environments. This setting can be
// used to expand the default white list with an array of extra settings.
