Selenium with TestNG

Your guide to running tests using TestNG on BrowserStack’s Selenium Grid of 3000+ real devices and desktop browsers.

Run a sample Build

Here’s how you can run a sample TestNG test build in three steps on BrowserStack:

Prerequisites

You need to have BrowserStack Username and Access key, which you can find in your account settings. If you have not created an account yet, you can sign up for a Free Trial

Ensure that Maven is installed on your machine, Maven environment variables are set, and Maven bin is added to system path, $PATH. Check out the official website to download the latest version of Maven.

Clone the sample repository

Copy the following code snippet and run it in your terminal/command prompt to clone our sample repository and install the dependencies.

Configure test script

In order to test, you will need to configure a few parameters in the sample repo.

Set access credentials

Use userName and accesKey variables to set your BrowserStack access credentials in browserstack.yml. This is required to authenticate your tests.

Configure the browser or device combinations

Select desktop browsers or real devices from a list of 3000+ available combinations:

Parallel thread #1
Parallel thread #2
Parallel thread #3

Copy and replace the browserstack.yml config file

Facing issues? View commonly occurring errors

Check the regular culprits

Check if the file is saved correctly and you’ve installed the required packages & libraries installed to run the test. In most cases, searching on Google is helpful.

Authentication errors

If you are facing any authentication errors, you might have not passed or passed incorrect credentials. You can find your Username and Access Key on the Account Settings page. Try running the test again and it should solve your issue!

Behind a proxy?

You might face some connection issues if you are behind a proxy as your network may be blocking traffic to browserstack.com. Just whitelist traffic to *.browserstack.com and you’re all set. If you have a complex network setup, just reach out to our Support team and they’ll work with you to get this working.

Next steps

After you have successfully run your first test on BrowserStack, try integrating your test suite with BrowserStack
