Before running a browser or device test with Sauce Labs, you need to write your test script to launch the platform/operating system/browser combination you want, and specify the location of the app for testing. You'll also want to configure other options, such as the path to your app.
Getting Ready to Test
Test configuration refers to setting the desired capabilities of your test within the test script itself. There are required capabilities for both Selenium and Appium tests, as well as an extensive set of optional capabilities (some of which are exclusive to Sauce Labs). You can use our Platform Configurator to create the required desired capabilities for your test scripts, or use one of our test framework examples to set up the desired capabilities for parallel testing across multiple platform/operating systems.
