You can test your Axure prototypes in Maze. You’ll do this by installing the Maze tracking code as a plugin in your Axure project, and then copying a share link that you’ll then import into Maze.
This article will walk you through installing the required plugin, generating the share link, importing your prototype into Maze, and updating the prototype after you've imported it.

Installing the Maze plugin in Axure
To be able to test Axure prototypes in Maze, you’ll need to install the Maze tracking code as a plugin in Axure.
- Ensure that the correct team is selected.
- Copy your team’s unique Maze snippet. Where do I find the snippet?
- Open your project in Axure Cloud.
- Navigate to Plugins, under the Advanced tab.
- Click Add plugin.
- Add a Plugin name, and paste the snippet you copied from Maze in the Plugin code field. We recommend installing the plugin in the
<head>tag, as high as possible.
- Click Add plugin.
- Click All > as well as the checkbox Add to new pages by default to ensure you’re able to test all pages of the project.
- Click Save.
Repeat these steps for each project you need to import.
Copying a share link without the prototype player
To copy the Axure share link:
- Open your Axure Cloud share link. Learn more about sharing in the Axure documentation
- Open and copy the link For a share link without a prototype player.
Importing your Axure prototype into Maze
To import your Axure prototype:
- Open your maze.
- Click Add block, then select Live website test.
- Paste the Axure share link in the Website field. Your share link should look like this: https://
- The URL you paste will be the starting page/screen of your test.
- The URL must include a valid scheme (e.g.
- A small floating window will open with a preview of your project link. Please don't close this window; this is an important step for Maze to detect whether the snippet is working correctly on your project.
Why do I see a "Window size too large" when importing or testing my Axure prototype?
When you start a website testing task, the window should automatically open in the correct size.
Avoid opening the task window in a new tab and/or in full screen, as it may exceed the maximum window dimension. Otherwise, the following error is triggered:
Window size too large
If you or your testers see this error, you'll need to reduce the size of the task window.
These limitations in size range are in place to ensure that clicks correctly register in the results.
