Selenium Settings Overview

Selenium settings store the configurations of your selected Selenium provider.

Creating Selenium Settings

  1. From the Copado Selenium Testing app, click on the Selenium Settings tab.
  2. Give your settings a name.
  • If you are configuring Quick Run Settings, it is recommended that you add ‘Quick Test Settings’ to the name as the default naming convention used by Copado is ‘[Your Alias] Quick Test Settings’.
  1. Select a provider.
  • Supported providers are: Sauce Labs, Browser Stack, and custom configurations.
  • If Custom/Other is selected as a provider, the text box called Selected Platforms will be shown. Here, the following sample .INI format that should be supplied with valid configuration selections for the provider:

[Internet Explorer]

browserName = Internet Explorer

version = latest

platform = Windows 7 64-Bit

screenResolution = 1366x768

  1. Add the Webdriver URL. The Webdriver URL given to you by your provider needs to be pasted here. Below there are some examples of webdriver URLs:
  • If using BrowserStack, log in to BrowserStack, open your account Settings page (Accounts > Settings) and find your Username and Access Key. Copy these 2 values and paste them in the following WebDriver URL link:

For http:

http://<Username>:<AccessKey>@hub.browserstack.com/wd/hub

For https:

https://<username>:<Automate_Key>@hub-cloud.browserstack.com/wd/hub

  • Example SauceLabs WebDriverURL:

http://<username>:<key>@ondemand.saucelabs.com/wd/hub
