Execute tests

After uploading your app and Espresso test-suite, you are ready to run your Espresso tests on BrowserStack App Automate. Its easy to execute your tests using the REST API. Here is an example cURL request to start the execution of your Espresso tests :

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" \
-X POST "https://api-cloud.browserstack.com/app-automate/espresso/v2/build" \
-d '{"devices": ["Samsung Galaxy S8-7.0"], "app": "bs://f7c874f21852ba57957a3fdc33f47514288c4ba4", "testSuite": "bs://e994db8333e32a5863938666c3c3491e778352ff"}' \
-H "Content-Type: application/json"

In the above example, the devices parameter is used to specify a list of Android devices to test your app on. The app parameter is used to specify the application under test uploaded to BrowserStack. The testSuite parameter is used to specify the Espresso test-suite uploaded to BrowserStack.

Note: app, testSuite and devices are mandatory parameters in the API request to start the test execution.

A sample response to the above API request is shown below :

{
    "message": "Success",
    "build_id": "741c219db523cb51d4cdf35723ce3bfc592fb74a"
}

The build_id returned in the API response is used to uniquely identify your test execution. Each test build is an execution of your Espresso test-suite on all selected devices.

Note: View our Espresso Build API reference for a complete list of parameters that you can use for your Espresso test execution.
