UiPath Test Suite

Getting Started

Run device automation through Mobile Device Manager without ever touching the device. To quickly understand how to automate a mobile project, set up Mobile Device Manager (MDM), and then create and run a workflow on a cloud device.

Prerequisites for Cloud devices

  • Install UiPath.MobileAutomation.Activities. For more information, see Managing Packages. Alternatively, you can use the Mobile Testing Project default template, as this will install the activity package for you.
  • Create an account on a device cloud platform. For this example, create an account on Sauce Labs.

Prerequisites for Local devices

Local devices require specific configurations in order to run mobile testing automations on them.

Local Android device
