Action Required: TestObject End-of-Life Coming Sept. 1, 2021

If you're currently using TestObject, please migrate all of your mobile apps and test files from TestObject storage to Sauce Labs Application Storage by Aug. 31, 2021. To get started, see our TestObject Info Center and User Migration Guide

As part of our efforts to bring you a single, unified platform for all of our products, we're migrating all real device cloud functionality from TestObject (Legacy RDC) to Sauce Labs. Espresso support, for example, is now available on Sauce Labs (XCUITest support coming soon!). 

This page describes all of these upcoming changes and new features. If you have any questions, please reach out to your CSM.

Sauce Application Storage1(tick)(tick)
App Center Integration2(tick)(tick)

1 Apps are now stored for 60 days. Unlike TestObject, real device testing on the Sauce Labs unified platform does not have the concept of a “project,” and when uploading an app via CLI you'll need to use your Sauce Labs accessKey, not your TestObject apiKey.

For Microsoft App Center integration, you'll need to create a post-build script; see Microsoft App Center Integration on Sauce Labs.

Security

FeatureAvailable in Legacy RDCAvailable in Sauce Labs
Sauce Connect Proxy(tick)(tick)

Device Lockdown1(error)(tick)

Device Lockdown disallows network traffic from devices outside a Sauce Connect or IPSec VPN connection.

Account and Team Management

FeatureAvailable in Legacy RDCAvailable in Sauce Labs
Extended Team Management1(error)(tick)

Available with Enterprise Plans only. One of the benefits of an upgrading to an Enterprise plan is the ability to switch Sauce Labs Data Centers so you can access your account's test results across all of these regions. To learn more, please visit our website.
