Test on Internal Networks

BrowserStack enables you to run your PNUnit automated tests on your internal development environments, on localhost, and from behind a corporate firewall. This feature is called “Local Testing”.

Local Testing establishes a secure connection between your machine and the BrowserStack cloud. Once you set up Local Testing, all URLs work out of the box, including HTTPS URLs and those behind a proxy or firewall.

Configuring your PNUnit tests for Local Testing takes just three steps:

  1. Download and install the BrowserStackLocal binary:

    Note: Install BrowserstackLocal using NuGet Gallery.

  2. Next, you need to update your PNUnit config file, local.conf.json, and set the browserstack.local capability to true:

    // config.xml
    <TestGroup>
      <ParallelTests>
          <ParallelTest>
            <Name>PNUnit-BrowserStack</Name>
            <Tests>
              <TestConf>
                <Name>local_test</Name>
                <Assembly>PNUnit-BrowserStack\bin\Release\PNUnit-BrowserStack.dll</Assembly>
                <TestToRun>BrowserStack.LocalTest.HealthCheck</TestToRun>
                <Machine>localhost:8080</Machine>
                <TestParams>
                  <string>local</string>
                  <string>chrome</string>
                </TestParams>
              </TestConf>
            </Tests>
          </ParallelTest>
      </ParallelTests>
    </TestGroup>
    

    Here is a sample test case written for running local with PNUnit.

    public class LocalTest : BrowserStackPNUnitTest
    {
      [Test]
      public void HealthCheck()
      {
        driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("http://bs-local.com:45691/check");
        Assert.IsTrue(Regex.IsMatch(driver.PageSource, "Up and running", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase));
      }
    }
    
  3. You can now run your PNUnit test using BrowserStack Local with the following command:

    Run PNUnit agent start pnunit-agent.exe agent.conf Build the solution in Visual Studio Run test pnunit-launcher.exe config\local.config.xml
