Selenium browser automation

Browser automation allows you to automate tasks inside Multiloginapp browser profiles. From creating simple automation scripts to complex web crawlers that search, collect and interact with web data.

Multiloginapp browser automation is based on the Selenium WebDriver.

In the usual scenario, if you are running Selenium code, you would first connect to Firefox (Gecko) or Chrome driver first and then set desired capabilities. When using Multiloginapp with your Selenium code, you do not need to do that. Instead, you use the Remote Web Driver to connect to Multiloginapp application via the local port and set desired capabilities to execute Selenium commands in a pre-defined browser profile.

Supported languages

Because Selenium framework offers a variety of language bindings, Multiloginapp automation can be also run on multiple coding languages.  However, currently, technical support is only provided for Java language.

Examples

Java

// import the following frameworks

import org.apache.http.client.utils.URIBuilder;
import org.junit.Assert;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;
import java.net.URI;

   public class BrowserAutomationRemoteWebDriverSample {

      public void simpleTest() throws Exception {

        //TODO replace with existing profile ID. Define the ID of the browser profile, where the code will be executed.
        String profileId = "xxx";

        // define Multiloginapp local port
        int mlaClientPort = 35000;

        // define the URL where the Remote Web Driver should connect to
        URI url = new URIBuilder("http://127.0.0.1:" + mlaClientPort + "/api/v1/webdriver").build();

        // set desired capabilities to connect to a pre-defined browser profile
        DesiredCapabilities dc = new DesiredCapabilities();
        dc.setCapability("multiloginapp-profileId", profileId);

        //instantiate the Remote Web Driver to connect to a Multiloginapp local connection
        RemoteWebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(url.toURL(), dc);

        //perform automation
        driver.get("http://multiloginapp.com/");
        Assert.assertTrue(driver.getPageSource().contains("Multiloginapp"));
        driver.quit();

     }
   }

Python

// import selenium framework
from selenium import webdriver

//TODO replace with existing profile ID. Define the ID of the browser profile, where the code will be executed.
mla_profile_id = 'profileID'

// define Multiloginapp local port
mla_port = '35001'

// define the URL where the Remote Web Driver should connect to
mla_url = 'http://127.0.0.1:' + mla_port + '/api/v1/webdriver'

// set desired capabilities to connect to a pre-defined browser profile and instantiate the Remote Web Driver to connect to a Multiloginapp local connection
driver = webdriver.Remote(command_executor=mla_url, desired_capabilities={'multiloginapp-profileId': mla_profile_id})

//perform automation
driver.get('https://multiloginapp.com')
assert "Multi-Login" in driver.title
driver.quit()
