Automated tests on NUnit

Quick start guide to integrate Automate tests on BrowserStack Accessibility Testing with NUnit.

Prerequisites

  • You have an account with BrowserStack (even a free trial works) and can get your Username and Access Key from Account & Profile.
  • You have a NUnit test suite that runs on BrowserStack Automate.
  • You are using .NET version 5.0 or above and NUnit version 3.0.0 or above.

Integrate with Automated tests

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

The minimum version of BrowserStack SDK that supports Automated tests is 1.12.2. To install a version of BrowserStack SDK that supports Automated tests, the minimum version of BrowserStack.TestAdapter to be installed is 0.9.2.

Install or update to the latest version of BrowserStack.TestAdapter

Go to your NUnit project’s root directory and run the following commands to install the BrowserStack.TestAdapter from nuget. The NUnit 3 Test Adapter allows you to run NUnit 3 tests inside Visual Studio or with dotnet on the command line.

The BrowserStack SDK for C# is currently not available on Mac computers with the M1 and M2 chip architecture.

Create the browserstack.yml file

Run the following command to create the browserstack.yml file:

Set up the browserstack.yml file

Set up the browserstack.yml file as in the following sample.

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

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

Continue running your tests as you have been running previously. The command to run your tests using the BrowserStack SDK remains unchanged. For your reference, here’s a sample command:

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