Configuring tests

Following environment variables are set by this TeamCity plugin:

BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME
BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY
BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL
BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER

Use these environment variables to set the capabilities in your tests. For example:

String username = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME");
String accessKey = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY");
String browserstackLocal = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL");
String browserstackLocalIdentifier = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER");
DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
capabilities.setCapability("os", "Windows");
capabilities.setCapability("browser", "chrome");
capabilities.setCapability("browserstack.local", browserstackLocal);
capabilities.setCapability("browserstack.localIdentifier", browserstackLocalIdentifier);
driver = new RemoteWebDriver(new URL("https://" + username + ":" + accessKey + "@hub.browserstack.com/wd/hub"), capabilities);
username = process.env.BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME
accessKey = process.env.BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY
browserstackLocal = process.env.BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL
browserstackLocalIdentifier = process.env.BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER

var capabilities = {
 "os" : "Windows",
 "browser" : "chrome",
 "browserstack.local" : browserstackLocal,
 "browserstack.localIdentifier" : browserstackLocalIdentifier,
 "browserstack.user" : username,
 "browserstack.key" : accessKey
}

var driver = new webdriver.Builder().
  usingServer("https://hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub").
  withCapabilities(capabilities).
  build();
String username = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME");
String accessKey = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY");
String browserstackLocal = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL");
String browserstackLocalIdentifier = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER");
DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
capabilities.setCapability("os", "Windows");
capabilities.setCapability("browser", "chrome");
capabilities.setCapability("browserstack.local", browserstackLocal);
capabilities.setCapability("browserstack.localIdentifier", browserstackLocalIdentifier);
driver = new RemoteWebDriver(new URL("https://" + username + ":" + accessKey + "@hub.browserstack.com/wd/hub"), capabilities);
$username = getenv("BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME");
$accessKey = getenv("BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY");
$browserstackLocal = getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL");
$browserstackLocalIdentifier = getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER");

$caps = array(
  "os" => "Windows",
  "browser" => "chrome",
  "browserstack.local" => $browserstackLocal,
  "browserstack.localIdentifier" => $browserstackLocalIdentifier
);

$web_driver = RemoteWebDriver::create(
  "https://" . $username . ":" . $accessKey . "@hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub",
  $caps
);
username = os.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME")
access_key = os.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY")
browserstack_local = os.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL")
browserstack_local_identifier = os.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER")

caps = {
 'os': 'Windows',
 'browser': 'chrome',
 'browserstack.local': browserstack_local,
 'browserstack.localIdentifier': browserstack_local_identifier,
 'browserstack.user': username,
 'browserstack.key': access_key
}

driver = webdriver.Remote(
    command_executor='https://hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub',
    desired_capabilities=caps)
username = ENV["BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME"]
access_key = ENV["BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY"]
browserstack_local = ENV["BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL"]
browserstack_local_identifier = ENV["BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER"]
caps = Selenium::WebDriver::Remote::Capabilities.new
caps["os"] = "Windows"
caps["browser"] = "chrome"
caps["browserstack.local"] = browserstack_local
caps["browserstack.localIdentifier"] = browserstack_local_identifier
caps["browserstack.user"] = username
caps["browserstack.key"] = access_key

driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for(:remote,
  :url => "https://hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub",
  :desired_capabilities => caps)
my $username = $ENV{"BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME"};
my $accessKey = $ENV{"BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY"};
my $browserstackLocal = $ENV{"BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL"};
my $browserstackLocalIdentifier = $ENV{"BROWSERSTACK_LOCAL_IDENTIFIER"};

my $caps = {
  "os" => "Windows",
  "browser" => "chrome",
  "browserstack.local" => $browserstackLocal,
  "browserstack.localIdentifier" => $browserstackLocalIdentifier
};

my $host = "$username:$accessKey\@hub-cloud.browserstack.com";

my $driver = new Selenium::Remote::Driver('remote_server_addr' => $host,
  'port' => '80', 'extra_capabilities' => $caps);
Note: You must pass browserstack.local and browserstack.localIdentifier capabilities to test on your local development servers.

Generating and Embedding test reports(for JUNit and TestNG only)

BrowserStack allows you to easily debug your Selenium Webdriver tests with features like Video recordings, Selenium logs, JS Console logs, and Network logs. With our TeamCity plugin, you can view all the logs and reports generated by BrowserStack right inside TeamCity. At this point, embedding test reports only works with a select set of frameworks.

The prerequisites are:

  • Project must be a Java project.
  • Project must be built with Maven and use either TestNG or JUnit for testing.

Generating test reports

This step is required for viewing the BrowserStack Automate Report in your TeamCity job results.

Add the following dependencies to your pom.xml file:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.browserstack</groupId>
  <artifactId>automate-testassist</artifactId>
  <version>1.1.0</version>
</dependency>


Add the following repositories to your pom.xml file:

<repositories>
  <repository>
    <id>sonatype-nexus-snapshots</id>
    <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
  </repository>
</repositories>
<pluginRepositories>
  <pluginRepository>
  <id>sonatype-nexus-snapshots</id>
    <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
  </pluginRepository>
</pluginRepositories>


Add the following plugin to your pom.xml file:

<build>
  <plugins>
    <plugin>
      <groupId>com.browserstack</groupId>
      <artifactId>automate-maven-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
      <configuration>
        <source>${jdk.source.version}</source>
        <target>${jdk.target.version}</target>
        <complianceLevel>${jdk.source.version}</complianceLevel>
      </configuration>
      <executions>
        <execution>
          <goals>
            <goal>test-compile</goal>
          </goals>
        </execution>
      </executions>
    </plugin>
  </plugins>
</build>

You must define the maven properties, jdk.source.version and jdk.target.version to match the Java versions of your project.

Viewing test reports

  1. Go to Project Overview.
  2. Select BrowserStack tab.
  3. Click on an individual test to view its BrowserStack Automate report.

Conclusion

By following the steps outlined in this guide, you should have a seamless integration between your existing automation in TeamCity, your Selenium tests and the BrowserStack Selenium grid. This will help you leverage all the benefits of test automation and the scale and coverage offered by BrowserStack.
