Force variation parameters override all targeting conditions, including audience and url targeting. It simply runs the code contained within the experiment onto the page.

Here's a blog post I wrote on force variation parameters, please have a look and let me know if you have any additional questions: https://community.optimizely.com/t5/Using-Optimizely/Using-force-variation-parameters-as-an-effectiv...

If you would like to test the experiment as if it were live (so, adhering to all of the targeting conditions), I recommend using the test cookie method. Here's a blog I wrote on that as well: https://community.optimizely.com/t5/Developers/Using-a-test-cookie-audience-condition-to-QA-your-exp...
