Execute Tests in SauceLabs

Learn to use BELLATRIX to execute web tests in SauceLabs.

Example

[TestFixture]
[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome,
    "62",
    "Windows",
    Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted,
    recordScreenshots: true,
    recordVideo: true)]
public class SauceLabsTests : WebTest
{
    [Test]
    public void PromotionsPageOpened_When_PromotionsButtonClicked()
    {
        App.Navigation.Navigate("http://demos.bellatrix.solutions/");

        var promotionsLink = App.Components.CreateByLinkText<Anchor>("Promotions");

        promotionsLink.Click();
    }

    [Test]
    [SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome, "62", "Windows", DesktopWindowSize._1280_1024, Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted)]
    public void BlogPageOpened_When_PromotionsButtonClicked()
    {
        App.Navigation.Navigate("http://demos.bellatrix.solutions/");

        var blogLink = App.Components.CreateByLinkText<Anchor>("Blog");

        blogLink.Click();
    }
}

Explanations

[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome,
    "62",
    "Windows",
    Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted,
    recordScreenshots: true,
    recordVideo: true)]

To execute BELLATRIX tests in SauceLabs cloud you should use the SauceLabs attribute instead of Browser. SauceLabs has the same parameters as Browser but adds some additional ones; browser version, platform type, recordVideo and recordScreenshots. As with the Browser attribute you can override the class behavior at the Test level.

[Test]
[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome, "62", "Windows", DesktopWindowSize._1280_1024, Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted)]
public void BlogPageOpened_When_PromotionsButtonClicked()
{
    App.Navigation.Navigate("http://demos.bellatrix.solutions/");

    var blogLink = App.Components.CreateByLinkText<Anchor>("Blog");

    blogLink.Click();
}

As mentioned if you use the SauceLabs attribute on method level it overrides the class settings.

[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome, "62", "Windows", 1000, 500, Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted)]
[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome, "62", "Windows", MobileWindowSize._320_568, Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted)]
[SauceLabs(BrowserType.Chrome, "62", "Windows", TabletWindowSize._600_1024, Lifecycle.ReuseIfStarted)]

As you can see with the SauceLabs attribute we can change the browser window size again.

Configuration

If you don’t use the attribute, the default configuration under the executionSettings section will be used. Also, you can add additional driver arguments under the arguments section array in the configuration file.
