Reviews (1-25 of 150)
- We use Sauce Labs to run our automated regression testing for our different web apps over different browser, device[,] and OS versions (Virtual)
- Manual testers use Sauce Labs to test on real mobile devices using real device cloud
- Currently only being used by our department, plans for future rollout to the rest of the organisation is being discussed
- This addresses browser and device compatibility as before this, we were only using Chrome to test.
- Recording of test runs (virtual only)
- Parallel test runs cuts down the time
- Sauceconnect is great to quickly access internal environments
- Virtual devices are not up to date, [especially] Samsung and android devices
- No recording of test runs on real devices
- Slow response times
- Impossible or hard to test on different browsers in devices (virtual and real)
- Platform configuration for multiple operating system / browser version combinations.
- Supports both manual and automated test case execution.
- Can provision virtual or physical devices.
- Provide virtual devices for tablets and phones direct for use without Appium.
- Decrease the lag time between automated test execution and console display.
- Better integration publishing test execution results to external test case management systems such as Tricentis qTest.
- The biggest strength of Sauce Labs is very easy to configure.
- Supports parallel execution on different devices and os combination.
- Very good reporting which includes video, technical logs, charts, graphs which helps automation engineers to debug the failures in execution.
- Increase the range of real devices for testing with less cost.
- Support for high definition video playing on emulators.
- Many time performance of the execution is really slow, especially when connected with Sauce Connect.
- Running tests reliably in a cloud-based environment.
- Parallel test execution is easy and stable.
- Supports a wide variety of devices and browsers.
- Sometimes for running mobile scripts it takes a long time to open the simulator and run.
- As its run on cloud there is some latency we experience.
- But its a awesome tool.
- Running mobile test cases in different environments.
- Running WEB browsers tests on different versions.
- I like Sauce Labs recordings for easy debug.
- Even looking into failure logs helped me a lot.
- Running IOS, Android tests execution is slower.
- We cannot run proxy tests on Sauce Labs.
- A11y scanning needs to be implemented in the tool.
Key benefit is that it helps us with testing on devices we do not have, as buying all the mobile devices is costly and we are a startup. It's also helpful because Sauce Labs contains devices that are on Beta OS versions which is great!
- Plethora of Real Cloud Devices.
- Has devices with Beta OS versions installed on them.
- Supports automated web app testing with numerous web browsers.
- Visual testing with sauce visual for native mobile apps would be great.
- Support to allow updating mobile apps from previous version to new version so that we can test the update process. Sometimes we want to show a "What's New" screen that gets triggered only if a user updates from an old native mobile app to a new native mobile app.
- Allows us to install ipa and apk files on real devices as part of testing native mobile app.
- Removes the need to maintain physical desktops for various browser / os combination testing for the website.
- User management is pretty easy to use.
- Setting up the dedicated network tunnel between Sauce Labs and Customer.
- User Management.
- Allow ipa and apk files to be installed on simulators and emulators.
- Add accessibility testing features.
- Add user experience measures.
- Improve overall customer support, as I had to deal with a new sales rep everything 4 - 5 months.
Sauce Labs used to be really good solution and of late we have experienced many interruptions starting from inability to onboard users to interruption services. On top of that their support team make changes which is not tested properly, which can impact customers like us and cause breakdown of services such as new user onboarding.
- All smoke tests are run in Sauce Labs.
- All device testing of Care.com apps happens in Sauce Labs.
- Evaluating AutonomIQ for script less automation.
- Frameworks for automation - pre built to get teams start off on automation.
- Scriptless automation in App space as 50% of traffic is mobile now.
- Testing mobile apps on real devices.
- Configuration on different spec of mobile devices.
- Integration with other third-party tools.
- The screen capture of objective evidence.
- Reporting of test results.
- Headless mode.
- Sauce support in regards ETA.
- Performance testing.
- Cross browser.
- Real private mobile devices.
- Excellent customer support.
- Performance dashboard analytics.
- Allow users to be in multiple teams. Currently one user can only belong to one team.
- If the team has its own private devices, it can’t use the private devices belong to the whole company organisation. We should allow a team to access their own devices and the company devices.
- Helpful in browser compatibility testing
- Helpful in validating the apps on different platforms and browsers
- Helpful in systematic approach in testing in performance
- Useful in emulating mobile devices and performing validations
- Would recommend to validate the performance of application also
- SauceConnect is great to allow tunnelling to test systems that are behind a firewall. There are many great features and they are adding more all the time.
- The fact that they maintain all WebDrivers and every version of browsers in invaluable. If we have a need for a specific platform, they have it.
- They have been having increased unexpected downtime lately. This is interruptive at times.
- no training
- Supporting different OS and browser combinations
- Adding support for new browsers as they get released
- Detailed analytics view of how the tests are running
- Sauce Labs could improve on provide test level analytics
If your product does not have a lot of pages, Sauce Labs may not be the best fit for you.
- Providing devices and browsers over cloud
- Intuitive UI
- We have a strong partnership with our account team. They are always willing to help us understand how we are doing, what the opportunity areas are, and are there new tools and capabilities we can take advantage of.
- They have been a big advocate for the quality work we are doing in our company. This changed some of the perception within our own organization and I'm grateful for that.
- Analytics are awesome and always help us understand how we can do better.
- I've had four changes in account managers over the past couple of years. They ranged from super experienced/advocate to some that seems relatively junior/a bit removed. I understand this happens but clarity on what I can expect with these partnerships would be valuable. What I've gotten in the end has varied dramatically.
- Maintenance costs of devices including upgrades, software updates, malfunctions.
- Device shortage via use of public devices.
- Device sharing and collaboration.
- Access to devices during pandemic.
- Range of devices are almost endless.
- Combination of OS, Browser and browser versions are more than satisfactory.
- Logs of every type at your fingertips.
- Updates to the core could be better communicated.
- Documentation can be outdated in certain places. Like broken links or now irrelevant.
- Chat function would be nice as support even if it's a bot.
- You know which set of core devices you need as a company which would then become your private devices. Also the ability to swap devices for new ones annually is most useful and cost efficient.
- Other devices that are used less often can then be used from the public set of devices.
- Gets good people to work for it. These guys and gals are freed and just want you to succeed.
- Sauce Labs listens to what the customers want. (Though I could still use an AWS East-1, hint-hint.)
- They come to us when we ask, so that is pretty cool.
- Some of the documentation is old.
- Some of the documentation is missing for pure beginners. There are companies that throw newbies to the wolves with testing and say, "Go do this thing."
- "This thing" can't always be done with the enormity of the new toys that are available if those toys don't have "Step 1: Power on computer" kinds of tutorials.
I am a little excited about the new docker boxes. I don't really know what they do, but I am excited to see if it is what I think it is.
The engagement process with secret sauce is a little kitschy. Not particularly my style, but whatever.
Sauce Labs also simplifies the Visual Validation Testing by not having to have two contracts. It sucks for Applitools, but competition is competition. Don't get me wrong, I love Adam and Moshe to death, but now they have to up their game a little bit.
- Jenkins integration: The Sauce OnDemand and SauceConnect tools provide seamless and trivial integration with Jenkins.
- Documentation: Finding proper desired capabilities for specific browsers/platforms is quick and easy on the site.
- iPhone Simulator performance: The performance of the iPhone Simulator is dreadful. It was at least three times slower than running on a simulator on my own machine.
Sauce Labs Scorecard Summary
What is Sauce Labs?
Sauce Labs is a cloud-based platform for automated testing of desktop and mobile applications. It is designed to be instantly scalable, since it is optimized for continuous integration workflows. (The vendor says that when tests are automated and run in parallel on multiple virtual machines across many different browser, platform and device combinations, testing time is reduced and developer time is freed up from managing infrastructure.) The Sauce Labs testing cloud is intended to be paired with a CI system. According to the vendor, this combination allows developers to easily test desktop and hybrid, native and mobile web applications early on in their development cycles, continuously and affordably.
Sauce Labs provides enterprise-grade security via Sauce Connect™, its secure tunneling protocol for testing behind a firewall while maintaining control of proxy and access policies. Tests are run in the company’s secure data center and VMs are destroyed (not “wiped”) after each run, ensuring customer data is never exposed to future sessions. After tests are completed the Sauce Labs’ dashboard provides a unique build-oriented report with metadata, access to Selenium logs, screenshots, video recordings, and a complete list of commands and responses. Support for SSO lets customers provision new user accounts on the fly with centralized user account management, access control, and usage reporting.
