In the following article, we will learn how to create your first Native Android Application Test Case and to execute the same on Testsigma Labs(containing 100+ Real mobile devices to choose from).

The Application under Test(AUT) is Wikipedia Android App - Download the Wikipedia APK

Create and Run your first Android Native Application Test Case on Testsigma Labs

Please follow the below steps to create and run your Android Native Application Test Case.

1. Create a Project, Application and Version

From Testsigma Dashboard page, click on the Create New button and then click on Project to create a new Project as shown below.

Enter the required details: Project Name, Application Name, Version Name and Application Type.

Note: Enable the checkboxes if you need multi-Application and multi-Version tracking in single Project. You may leave it unchecked if you are not sure.

Clicking on Create button creates the Project, Application and Version in a single Step and takes you to the Test Cases page.

2. Import the UI Identifiers

UI Identifiers in Testsigma are used to locate the Elements on your Application Screen/Page such as buttons, fields e.t.c. 

For this guide, we have already created the UI Identifiers required in this Test Case for you in importable format. Let us import the UI Identifiers - Download the "fieldDefinition.xlsx"

Click on UI Identifiers link on the left context menu to go to UI Identifiers page. Click on Import button to import the UI identifiers as shown below:

How to Import UI Identifiers?

You can also get to UI Identifiers page from Test Development > UI Identifiers

In this case, we have already created the UI Identifier for you. Please check the below article to know how to create UI Identifiers for your Android Native Test Cases.

3. Create the Test Case.

Click on Test Cases link on left context menu once again to go back to the Test Cases page. Click on + Test Case to create a Test Case as shown below:

Double click on ui identifier, press Backspace key to delete it and select 'skip_onboarding' from the suggested ui identifiers list. 

Remember we had already imported the UI Identifiers and that is the reason the UI Identifiers are shown in suggestion. We can also create a UI Identifier by entering it's name. We will learn that in another article.

6. Add the remaining Test Steps

We have added the first two steps. We need to add step 3 to 6 to the Test Case.

#1. Launch Application
#2. Tap on skip_onboarding
#3. Tap on sync_readinglist_gotit 
#4. Tap on menu
#5. Tap on hide card

8. Create and Run the Execution

Go back to the Test Cases page and click on Run button on top right corner. Modify the required details and leave the rest as it is.

Run the Test by clicking on Create and Run button.

Once the execution is started, it will take some time for it to complete and it will be in queued status until completion. After the execution is complete, the Test Result status will change to Passed, Failed, Aborted, or Stopped as per the execution outcome.
