SauceLabs Plugin

The plugin provides integration with continuous testing cloud SauceLabs.

Installation

  1. Copy the below line to dependencies section of the project build.gradle file

    Please make sure to use the same version for all VIVIDUS dependencies.
    Example 1. build.gradle
    implementation(group: 'org.vividus', name: 'vividus-plugin-saucelabs', version: '0.6.9-SNAPSHOT')
  2. If the project was imported to the IDE before adding new dependency, re-generate the configuration files for the used IDE and then refresh the project in the used IDE.

Sauce Orchestrate

The Sauce Orchestrate is a new and unique approach to web and mobile application testing that increases test execution speed and enables end-to-end test orchestration.

Prerequisites to install:

How to run VIVIDUS steps using Sauce Orchestrate:

  1. Go to the project root directory.

  2. Build a docker image with tests and push it to a docker registry as described in this article.

  3. Create a .sauce/config.yml file in the project root with the following content:

    apiVersion: v1alpha
    kind: imagerunner
    sauce:
      region: us-west-1
    suites:
      - name: VIVIDUS test suite
        workload: webdriver
        resourceProfile: c2m2
        # replace the image value with the actual one
        image: vividus.jfrog.io/tests-docker-release/vividus-sample-tests:0.1.0-SNAPSHOT
        imagePullAuth:
          user: $DOCKER_REGISTRY_USERNAME
          token: $DOCKER_REGISTRY_PASSWORD
        artifacts:
          - '/vividus/output/reports/*'
    
    artifacts:
      cleanup: true
      download:
        when: always
        match:
          - "*"
        directory: ./report
    • Please see saucectl configuration for more details.

    • Make sure region configuration value corresponds to the region specified by the saucelabs.data-center property, please see region docs for mapping.

    • The DOCKER_REGISTRY_USERNAME and DOCKER_REGISTRY_PASSWORD are expected to be set during the 2nd step of the guide.

  4. Start tests by using saucectl:

    saucectl run
  5. Wait until the tests run is finished and see report folder in the project root for reports.
