Available properties

Mobile support type - Specifies the approach to mobile testing. The following options are available:

  • Mobile Device Cloud (BitBar and local Appium) - (Default) Select this option to create tests for applications running on mobile devices managed by Appium. It can be a mobile device cloud provided by BitBar or a private Appium server running on your local computer or in a remote computer in your local network. See About Mobile Tests.

  • Legacy mobile support - Select this option to create tests for mobile applications running on mobile devices connected to your test workstation locally. This is the legacy approach to mobile testing that has been employed in TestComplete until the new cloud-compatible approach has been introduced in version 14.74. See Testing Mobile Applications.

When one support type is enabled in your project, all features specific to another support type will not be available.
