Mobile Settings Dialog

Mobile Profiles

Use Mobile Settings Dialog to configure Mobile Profiles. A mobile profile specifies how to connect to a simulator or device via Appium. You may configure as many profiles as you need to run your tests on different devices.

Mobile Settings Dialog box displays the list of mobile profiles that have been configured for use by Rapise and lets you create a new profile, modify a profile or make a new profile based on an existing one.

Local Mobile Profiles

Rapise version 6.3+ enables creation of profiles local to a test. It allows storing profiles together with tests (inside SpiraTest or Git repository) and eliminates the need to configure profiles manually on each execution host.

To create a local profile just press Duplicate for one of global profiles and set Local checkbox before clicking OK button. Global and Local profile may have same name, in this case Local profile is used for execution.

Creating Local Mobile Profile

If a test contains local mobile profiles they can be seen in the dropdowns.
