Signing into a Real Device Project with Test Object

If you want to set up an account for real device testing with Sauce Labs via our legacy platform: Test Object, or you have an existing Test Object account and want to log in to access real devices, you first need to log into Test Object. 

  1. Sign up for a real device testing account with Sauce Labs.
  2. Go to, enter your credentials, and click Sign In.

  3. You should now see your real device projects listed in the Apps view.

Adding Users and Teams for Real Device Accounts with Test Object

If you are the owner of a real device account, you can add other team members to your account through email invitations.

Linking Test Object Real Device Accounts to Sauce Labs Logins

Your Real Device Cloud account is automatically linked to your Sauce Labs account based on your Sauce Labs account name. To make sure your RDC account is linked with your Sauce Labs login:

  1. Log into with your Test Object account credentials.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, click on the Back to Sauce Labs icon

    This will automatically link your Real Device Cloud account with your Sauce Labs account.

Team Structures for Sauce Labs and Real Device Accounts

If you have set up a team on Sauce Labs for working with virtual devices, that same team structure will be mirrored for your real device cloud account. However, because the team structure for your virtual device account can have several layers, while the team structure for real device accounts is flat, only administrators for your organization will be set up as team admins. All virtual device account team members will be set up as members of the same team for your real device account.

Adding Users to the Team

If you add team members to your Sauce Labs account, they will also be automatically added to your real device cloud account. If you want to add users directly to your real device account, follow these steps. If you add users to your real device account directly, they will not also be added to your Sauce Labs account. 

  1. Log into with your account credentials.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, click the User Profile icon, and then Account Settings.

  3. Click the Team tab. 

  4. Enter the email address of the person you want to add to your team, and click Invite.

    This will send an email with a temporary password to that team member, and your new team member can log in and set their own password and user information. This will also create the new user's real device cloud account, so there is no need for them to log into and then create the link between their accounts as described in the section above.
