Updating Sauce Labs dashboard with Selenium 2 test results


If you have not yet known of Sauce Labs, Sauce Labs specialises in executing Selenium tests on cloud. If you don't want to manage those umpteen configurations for executing your Selenium tests, then Sauce Labs is the answer. I am not going to explain executing your Selenium tests on Sauce Labs as there is enough documentation on Sauce Labs which already explains this. What I was stuck with is updating test results on Sauce Labs dashboard. Status "finished" does not indicate about success/failure of tests and you may probably not have time to see log/video of each and every finished tests.



I posted query to Sauce Labs and got to know about the Sauce Labs REST api. But things were still not very clear as I was not sure of on what basis I could update test results in Sauce Labs dashboard.
How do I get to know from a tests whether it succeeded or not and then update the Sauce Labs dashboard. This is when TestNG came to my rescue. TestNG ITestResult could be injected in tear down method to find the status of test execution and on the basis of this Sauce Labs dashboard could be set with pass or fail status.


I also found it useful to update the job name with name of test method to make Sauce Labs dashboard results more comprehensible. This is how my tear down method looks -


And here is the Sauce Labs dashboard with test status -

How can you save resources when instantiaing driver?

I asked on my previous post about what was wrong in instantiating driver on set up method? And here is the solution video on my YouTube channel (After 5 years of gap I finally added new video tutorial :)) The solution described on video tutorial uses following set up - public class BaseClassOnDemandDriverSetup { private WebDriver driver ; @BeforeMethod public void setupTest () { // Any other set up goes here } @AfterMethod public void teardown () { if ( driver != null ) { driver .quit() ; } } public WebDriver getDriver () { if ( driver == null ) { WebDriverManager. chromedriver ().setup() ; driver = new ChromeDriver() ; } return driver ; } }

Security Testing and Selenium

I have come across many articles which talk of carrying out security testing with selenium however I found it very cumbersome to set up such tests. This is what this tutorial is going to make easy for you. It cover. My next Security Testing and Selenium YouTube video covers following - Importance of having security testing on CI What is dynamic application security testing Recommended tools from https://owasp.org/www-community/Vulnerability_Scanning_Tools What is https://owasp.org/ ?   Using https://www.zaproxy.org/    Project setup  <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap-clientapi </artifactId> <version> 1.9.0 </version> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap </artifactId> <version> 2.10.0 </version> </dependency> Start ZAP daemom (headless) mode  ./zap.sh -daemon -host 127.0.0.1 -port 8080 -config api.addrs.a

Using chrome console to test xPath and css selectors

Since the advent of selenium there have been many plugin to test xPath / css selectors but you don’t need any of them if you have chrome browser. Using Chrome console you can test both xPath and css selectors. Launch website to be tested in chrome browser and hit F-12 and you would see chrome console opened in lower pane of application - Hit escape key and console would open another pane to write element locators - And now you can start writing xPath or css selectors in chrome console and test them - The syntax for writing css id - $$(“ ”) And hit the enter key. If your expression is right then html snippet of the application element corresponding to the css selector would be displayed - If you mouse over the html snippet in chrome console then it would highlight the corresponding element in application - If you want to clean console of previously written element selectors then just hit ctrl+L keys and chrome console would be empty again.
