Add (Edit) Remote Browser

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024

Use this dialog to add a new web browser to the list of browsers or to edit a browser added to the list. This list is used:

To open the dialog

  • When configuring the Remote Browser Loop operation, click Add or Change.

  • When configuring remote environments for a parallel run, set the device cloud provider to BitBar Web Cloud, and click Add Environment.

Requirements

  • An active license for the TestComplete Web Module.

  • The Web Testing plugin and the Cross-Platform Web Testing plugin must be enabled in TestComplete.

  • An active account for BitBar.

    Note: If you do not have an account, you can sign up for a free trial directly from TestComplete—TestComplete will suggest that you do this automatically if it does not find appropriate account data when you add the operation to your test.

  • TestComplete must have access to the device cloud. If there are any firewalls or proxies in your network, make sure that they allow traffic from the TestComplete workstation to the device cloud. If needed, configure the firewall to allow connecting to the cloud. See TestComplete and Windows Firewall.
