Set localization options

To test a localized version of your app, you can configure language, locale and timezone settings on the device for your Espresso test execution.

Language

In order to test a localized version of your app, you can change the language of the application under test (It doesn’t affect the language of the device). In order to do so, you need to use the language parameter in the API request to start Espresso test execution.

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/build
Parameter Description Values
language Set the language of the app under test. Example: ‘fr’

Example

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

Locale

In order to test a localized version of your app, you can also set a device locale. In order to do so, you need to use the locale parameter in the API request to start Espresso test execution.

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/build
Parameter Description Values
locale Set locale Example: CA
Format: Country name abbreviation

Example

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

Timezone

You can set a device timezone in order to configure your tests to run on a custom timezone. In order to do so, you need to use the timezone parameter in the REST API request to start Espresso test execution.

REST API endpoint :

POST /app-automate/espresso/build
Parameter Description Values
timezone Configure tests to run on a custom time zone. Example:
UTC
New_York (for America/New_York)
Los_Angeles (for America/Los_Angeles)
La_Rioja (for America/Argentina/La_Rioja)
You can view the complete list of timezones on wikipedia.

Example

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