Running Automated Tests for Web and Mobile Applications

Automated testing of both Web and mobile applications on Sauce Labs boils down to a few basic steps:

  1. Set yourself up with a Sauce Labs account.
    Check out the topics under Managing Team Members and Accounts if you're interested in setting up an account for multiple team members. 
  2. Update your existing tests to run on Sauce.
    The topics under Getting Started include examples of how to do this.
  3. Write new tests that include the desired capabilities of your test, in the language of your choice.
  4. Run your tests and watch the results appear on your Sauce Labs dashboard, complete with video, screenshots, and logs. 

Once you've mastered the basics, you'll be ready to move on to more advanced functionality, like running your tests in parallel to speed up your testing process, and integrating your tests on Sauce into your continuous integration pipeline.
