Testsigma Execution Platform allows you to execute your tests using different Test Lab Types such as:

  1. Testsigma Labs
  2. Hybrid
  3. BrowserStack
  4. Sauce Labs
  5. Private Grid



1. Testsigma Labs


This option allows you to run tests on Testsigma′s own cloud infrastructure. Testsigma Labs hosts a set of devices which can be used to run the tests with maximum security and compatibility. This is the recommended option as the systems are pre-configured with optimal settings for the test environments and the devices are used for only one purpose, i.e for running tests.

Use this option only if the application that you need to test is accessible over the Internet and not blocked by the firewall of a company network.


2. Hybrid


Hybrid Model enables you to use your own local machines for setting up the test environment and run the tests on them. This is the most preferred option if your application is hosted locally in company premises and is not accessible over the internet and this is mostly the case when an application is under active development.


Note: You need to install a helper agent application on your local machine to use this option. This agent configures the connection between Testsigma servers and your machine in order to perform the execution on your local machine. 


Refer the help document to set up a Hybrid execution - How to Create a Hybrid Execution using Local Machine?


3. BrowserStack


Testsigma also allows us to use cloud devices on BrowserStack Model to run your tests. You just need to integrate your BrowserStack account with your Testsigma Account by entering the login credentials. Also, while creating an Execution, provide the required device details on the Execution configurations page.

Refer the help document to learn how to find the device details - How to configure 3rd Party Cloud Environments like BrowserStack and Sauce Labs?


Use this option only if the application that you need to test is accessible over the Internet and not blocked by the firewall of a company network.


4. Sauce Labs


Similar to BrowserStack, it is possible to use Sauce Labs for your test execution by integrating it with Testsigma Account. You just need to integrate your Sauce Labs account with your Testsigma Account by entering the login credentials. Also, while creating an Execution, provide the required device details on the Execution configurations page.

Use this option only if the application that you need to test is accessible over the Internet and not blocked by the firewall of a company network.


5. Private Grid


Similar to Hybrid Model, Private grid allows you to configure a set of Machines for local Execution. Please contact the Testsigma Support team for more details as this involves Advanced Steps.
