What will you learn in this lecture?
In this video, we will go through the process of manual cross-browser testing in Sauce Labs. In the previous tutorial, we went through the overview of the Sauce Labs dashboard.
Manual Cross-Browser Testing
The manual testing feature is actually a fantastic feature of Sauce Labs. Many people don’t realize that Sauce Labs is not only used for automated testing. You can actually do manual cross-browser testing.
This is fantastic for any kind of manual testers or even developers of course. Automation engineers but even manual testers you can check how your browser looks on different browsers and operating systems.
Here let me quickly show you this. And again this is not the focus of our course. However, if you are interested in doing some cross-browser manual testing on your application you have that capability that comes with Sauce Labs.
So here is an example here’s my recent browsers and operating systems that I’ve us. So, for example, I can take a look at my Website on Google Chrome and Mac OS in this resolution. So here I can start a session.
What it does it spins up a brand new VM and it actually tells you here step by step what it does the spins of a brand new VM and then you can actually take a look at your website and how it looks on that exact combination of operating system browser and resolution.
And here’s what that looks like and you can actually interact with it so I can put my pointer here and I can start using the UI.
See, so let me close this and will try a different session so I can come here and click stop. Yes, I’ll end that session. And I can do another sessional click new manual testing session.
And now I’ll show you how to configure.
It’s pretty easy so let me pick a browser here so let’s say I want to look at Android so I can look at Android and I can pick my device year.
Let me look at it on, actually, let me look at it on an Apple device. Because I myself don’t have an Apple device. So actually yeah let me look at it on iPhone 8 plus simulator perfect and then I’m going to start my session.
So now it’s loading up the iOS 11 and the iPhone 8 plus simulator and I’ll be able to look at my website to see what it looks like manually and again will be able to do all of this in an automated manner.
Just giving you a quick little introduction to what manual testing capabilities there are. But again that is not the focus of this course. Just giving you a little preview.
All right so there it is. The iPhone 8 plus it actually took a couple minutes to load that was longer than I had expected but I guess it makes sense if they got to load up a simulator from scratch.
Usually, those simulators do take a little bit of time I just pause the video so that you don’t have to sit through the painful loading and you can see that I have the website here and there is my browser and I can actually interact with it. So just like normal, you can see that I can scroll through the browser and click on different links. And see how all of that looks and works on the device.
So anyway that’s just a little overview of the manual testing tab.
In the next tutorial, you will learn about tunnels, analytics, and archive tabs in Sauce Labs.
