Automated tests on Jest

Quick start guide to integrate Automated tests on BrowserStack Accessibility Testing with Jest.

Prerequisites

  • You have an account with BrowserStack (even a free trial works) and can get the username and access key from Account & Profile.
  • You have a pre-existing Jest test suite.

Integrate with Automated tests

Follow these steps to get started with adding Automated tests to your test suite:

The minimum version of browserstack-node-sdk that supports Automated tests is 1.31.22.

Install the latest version of the BrowserStack SDK

Install (or update) the browserstack-node-sdk npm package using the following command.

Terminal
Copy icon Copy snippet

BrowserStack SDK is a very powerful tool which you can use to set the different browser/device combinations and parallelization. For more details, check out the Automate Integration guide.

Make changes to the SDK config file

If you’ve installed the browserstack-node-sdk for the first time, you’ll have to create the following browserstack.yml file. Else, verify that your config file has all the required key-value pairs.

Especially, ensure to add the accessibility flag at the end of the browserstack.yml file.

Create the browserstack.yml file in the root folder of your test suite if it doesn’t exist.

The projectName and buildName config must be static and not change across different runs of the same build. This is a deviation in approach as specified by BrowserStack Automate since Automated tests will automatically identify different build runs.

Accessibility testing will only run on Desktops (Mac & Windows) with Chrome 95 & above on Automate.

Run your suite with Automated tests

Prepend browserstack-node-sdk to the existing command that you use to trigger a run as in the following sample and data will automatically start getting sent to Automated tests.

You can check the Accessibility report for your build through the Automated tests page.
