BrowserStack SDK Configurator
A guide to configure your Browserstack SDK. Run tests on BrowserStack’s real device cloud of 3000+ devices and browsers.
The complete list of capabilities supported by BrowserStack SDK can be found in the browserstack.yml gist file on GitHub.
Set access credentials
accessKey as env variables or directly in the config file.
Set app to be tested
app property determines the app to be tested. You can upload an Android app (
.aab file) or an iOS app (
.ipa file) from your local filesystem.
Set the path to your app. Or, if you have already uploaded your app, provide one of the other acceptable
app property values here
Enable BrowserStack Local
Test apps with local/staging API servers
BrowserStack’s Local Testing feature connects with locally hosted API servers to run your apps
Set platforms to test on
Select an os to choose the devices from below
Set the devices you want to test under the
Set number of parallel threads per platform
parallelsPerPlatform property determines the number of parallel threads to be executed. BrowserStack’s SDK runner will select the best strategy based on the configured value.
Example 1: If you have configured 3 platforms and set
parallelsPerPlatform as 2: a total of 6 (2 x 3) parallel threads will be used on BrowserStack.
Example 2: If you have configured 1 platform and set
parallelsPerPlatform as 15: a total of 15 (1 x 15) parallel threads will be used on BrowserStack.
Organizing your test suite
sessionName capabilities help with organizing your tests on BrowserStack Dashboard.
sessionName is the name of your test sessions and is automatically picked from your test class/spec name. It doesn’t need to be set manually when using the BrowserStack SDK.
Select a dynamic build identifier that appends to the build name and generates a unique name on the BrowserStack dashboard
By default, BrowserStack provides prettified session logs, screenshots on every failed selenium command, and a video of the entire test. Additionally, you can enable the following features:
Enables screenshots for every selenium command ran
Enables network capture for the session in HAR format. Reduces session performance slightly
