Test on Internal Networks

BrowserStack enables you to run your PHPUnit 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 PHPUnit tests for Local Testing takes just three steps:

Step 1: Install local bindings:

# Install using composer
php composer.phar install browserstack/browserstack-local

Step 2: Next, you need to update your PHPUnit config file, and set the browserstack.local capability to true:

{
  "server": "hub-cloud.browserstack.com",
  "user": "YOUR_USERNAME",
  "key": "YOUR_ACCESS_KEY",

  "capabilities": {
    "browserstack.local": true
  },

  "environments": [{
    "browser": "chrome"
  }]
}

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

class LocalTest extends BrowserStackTest {

    public function testLocal() {
      self::$driver->get("http://bs-local.com:45691/check");
      $this->assertContains('Up and running', self::$driver->getPageSource(), '', true);
    }

}

Step 3: You can now run your PHPUnit test using BrowserStack Local with the following command:

# Run using composer
composer local
