The Sauce Labs real device cloud provides you with the option to run Espresso, Robotium, or Appium automated tests for testing mobile applications and websites on mobile browsers. Check out the Sauce Labs Sample Test Frameworks repo on GitHub for examples of test setups for all three on both iOS and Android devices. For an introduction to Appium testing, check out Appium Bootcamp by Dave Haeffner and Matthew Edwards.

Before Running Your Tests

Testing Websites or Applications on localhost or an Internal Network

Sometimes apps are designed to run on internal networks, or on networks that can be accessed only from specific IP addresses. In this case, you can add an exception for TestObject to your network's whitelist for the IP range for the European data center, or the IP range and for the US data center.

Running Your Tests

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Go to the Apps dashboard and select the project you want to test.
  3. In the project dashboard, click Automated Testing.
