Automated tests on Pytest

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

Prerequisites

  • You have Pytest version 4 or above, Python3, and Pip3 installed.
  • You have a Pytest test suite that runs on BrowserStack Automate.

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 1.19.14.

Install BrowserStack Pytest SDK

Execute the following commands to install the BrowserStack Pytest SDK.

Terminal
Copy icon Copy snippet

Create the browserstack.yml file

You’ll have to create the browserstack.yml file as in the following sample. 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
