This Article demonstrates how Scriptworks can handle end-to-end test runs on a Native Mobile App of your choice.

Introduction

In this article, we will perform an end-to-end test run on a sample mobile app named Swag Labs, where we will be performing taps and swipes up the way we use mobile through our hands using Scriptworks – A Visual Programming/low Code Automation tool.

First, I will demonstrate the exercise we need to perform, followed by practically demonstrating the Automation through Drag and Drop of the relevant Blocks present in Scriptworks for achieving it.

Prerequisite:-

The user should have scriptworks-client, appium server, and emulator up and running. Please follow this article to get ready with basic settings.  

Exercise:- 

 

1) Open Swag labs app on mobile/emulator.

Putting normal emulator in the canvas open swag labs in emulator

2) Enter Username and Password and click on the Login button.

Practical Demonstration:-

Following are the Steps to Perform the above process, including validation using Visual Programming/Low code in Scriptworks:

Pre-requisite: Users should be able to login to Scriptworks via their Credentials, and their Scriptworks Client should be up and running. 

To know more about the Scriptworks Client and Selenium Standalone Server, please follow this Article.

1) Open Scriptworks on your system with your credentials and open the project where you want to perform the above-mentioned exercise.

Open project in scriptworks

2) Now click on the Target symbol present on the left side panel, select mode as Local Session, and click on Start Button. After that Click on add element button to identify elements needed to perform automation on a given mobile app

TargetSymbol → Click on Start → Click on Add Element

3) Create a list of all the required elements using the Inspector process.

HINT – You can perform navigation and type values directly in the Emulator Window and hit the Refresh button in the Scriptworks Inspector to grab a fresh screenshot for inspection.

I have created all of them as shown below:
