This feature is public and supported with Perfecto release 19.2 and up

Introduction

Perfecto now supports splitting your test suite into different tests run separately, in parallel on all selected devices. This enables time optimization in seeing and analyzing the test results, and shortening the turnaround.

Splitting the Tests

The XCUITest  Gradle Plugin supports XCUITest sharding, running each test shard on a separate device. Using the gradle plugin Configuration file:

  • Select a number of devices (either selecting specific parameters or random selection).
  • Configure the shard parameter to true (can be configured in either the Configuration File, build.gradle file, or on the command line).
  • Plugin will split the tests into a number of shards equal to the number of selected devices.
    The following example splits the test into three shards on randomly selected devices:

    "numOfDevices": 3,
    "shard": true,
    ...
  • Each shard will run on a separate device and the summary report will identify the index of the shard for that device.

Device selection works on a best effort approach – the number of shards will be determined by the number of devices the system was able to launch. For example, if the configuration file is configured to select 5 devices, but only 3 devices were available – the tests will be split among those three into three different shards.

Shard Test Output

The console output of the plugin will show the tests running on each device - identifying the device, the test class name, method under test, status.

At the completion of the full test bundle, the summary will identify the results for each device, and provide a link to the DigitalZoom Report Library listing for the full test. In the Report Library view, each shard will be listed on a separate line.

The following is an example of the console output for a test bundle split between two devices:
