Feature Availability: Version 4.0 and higher
accelQ allows you to configure web driver capabilities to use for test execution. These configurations allow you to control browser startup behavior.
You can configure multiple Web Driver profiles and select one during test execution. For example, you may have a Driver Profile for running chrome in headless mode, and another one for setting browser window dimensions etc.
Create Web Driver Profile
You can create a Web Driver Profile from Resources tab in accelQ.
Provide a meaningful reference name and configuration text as input. Subsequent sections in this document describe the JSON format to use for Web Driver configuration. You can create multiple profiles to be used across the Project.
Configuration JSON consists of three parts. All the capabilities and arguments use the standard Selenium Web Driver naming convention.
- Browser binary path: Specifies the path to browser, in case it is not installed on standard system path.
- Command line arguments to the browser: An array of capabilities are passed as browser startup arguments such as headless mode, incognito, window size, maximize window etc.
- Web driver preferences such as download folder path etc.
An example below:
"args":["start-maximized", "incognito", "headless", "no-sandbox"],
Example: Setting binary path to a custom installed chrome browser
Example: Running in headless mode
Example: Opening Chrome in incognito mode
Example: Setting up browser resolution
Example: Invoke browser with a specific user's profile
Example: Turning off Browser notifications
Example: To suppress certification (expired certificates) errors during test execution
Example: Saucelabs Configuration, when running tests against Saucelabs infra
Using a Web Driver Profile for Test Execution
You can specify the Web Driver Profile to use, when running the test. In the Run Modal, click on the section that displays Browser and OS icons. Expanded panel displays a dropdown to select the profile. If you choose not to use any special profile, just select None.
Selected Profile is saved in user cache and the Run modal always opens with this profile pre-selected.
What Configuration was used for a Test Run
Test Report displays the configuration that was used for a particular test run. Simply click on the "configuration" link in the summary section of your test run report.
