Visual logs

Visual Logs enables you to automatically capture screenshots for various Appium commands executed in your test session. They can help find the exact step and the page where the failure occurred. They also help identify any layout or design related issues in your app.

Visual logs are disabled by default. To enable visual logs, use the browserstack.debug capability.

Capability Description Value
browserstack.debug Generate screenshots for various appium commands in your test true, false
Default: false

Example :

desired_caps = {
    'browserstack.debug': 'true'
}
DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
desiredCapabilities.setCapability("browserstack.debug", "true");
desired_cap = {
	'browserstack.debug': 'true'
}
var capabilities = {
	'browserstack.debug': 'true'
}
DesiredCapabilities capability = new DesiredCapabilities();
capability.SetCapability("browserstack.debug", "true");
$capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
$capabilities->setCapability("browserstack.debug", "true");
