backstop.template.json

You can customize the contents of the generated backstop.json file by creating a backstop.template.json file. In addition to standard items in backstop.json the backstop.template.json needs a defaultScenario key. This will be used when generating the scenarios for crawled URLs.
For example:
{
  "scenarios": [],
  "defaultScenario": {
  	"label": "Default",
  	"url": "",
  	"referenceUrl": "",
  	"hideSelectors": [],
  	"selectors": [
  	"document"
  	],
  	"readyEvent": null,
  	"delay": 1500,
  	"misMatchThreshold": 0.1
  }
}
