How to test browser cookies using testRigor?

For web automation, it is necessary to play with browser cookies often. You may need to set browser cookies to access a few features in the staging website or confirm if the cookie is set for verification.

Using testRigor, it’s effortless to manage browser cookies. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Log in to your testRigor app with your credentials.

Step 2: Set up the test suite for the website testing by providing the information below:

  • Test Suite Name: Provide a relevant and self-explanatory name.
  • Type of testing: Select from the following options: Desktop Web Testing, Mobile Web Testing, Native, and Hybrid Mobile, based on your test requirements.
  • URL to run test on: Provide the application URL you want to test.
  • Testing credentials for your web/mobile app to test functionality which requires user to login: You can provide the app’s user login credentials here and need not write them separately in the test steps then. The login functionality will be taken care of automatically using the keyword login. However, this is an optional field and can be skipped if not relevant.
  • OS and Browser: Choose the OS Browser combination on which you want to run the test cases.
  • Number of test cases to generate using AI: You can simplify your test creation further by opting to generate test cases based on the App Description text. This feature works on generative AI.

Step 3: Click on Create Test Suite.

On the next screen, you can let AI generate the test case based on your provided app description while creating the Test Suite. However, for now, select do not generate any test, since we will write the test steps ourselves.

Step 4: To create a new custom test case, click Add Custom Test Case.

Step 5: Provide the test case Description and add the test steps.

Test Case: Validation of Browser Cookies

We are using the testRigor website to manage the cookies for the test case. So let us go through each step.

Step 1: To set a cookie, we can use the following script:
set cookie "cookie value" as "cookie-name"
Step 2: To set the cookie where the value is stored in a variable.
set cookie from saved value "variableName" as "cookie-name"
Step 3: To get the cookie value and save it as ‘variableName2’, we can write the test step like this:
get cookie "cookie-name" and save it as "variableName2"

Complete Test Case

Here is how the complete test case will look in the testRigor app. The test steps are simple in plain English, enabling everyone in your team to write and execute them.

click Add and Run.

Execution Results

Once the test is executed, you can view the execution details, such as execution status, time spent in execution, screenshots, error messages, logs, video recordings of the test execution, etc. In case of any failure, logs and error text are available easily in a few clicks.

You can also download the complete execution with steps and screenshots in PDF or Word format through the ‘View Execution‘ option.

testRigor’s Capabilities

Apart from the simplistic test case design and execution, some advanced features help you test your application using simple English commands.

  • Reusable Rules (Subroutines): You can easily create functions for the test steps that you use repeatedly. You can use the Reusable Rules to create such functions and call them in test cases by simply writing their names. See the example of Reusable Rules.
  • Global Variables and Data Sets: You can import data from external files or create your own global variables and data sets in testRigor to use them in data-driven testing.
  • 2FA, QR Code, and Captcha Resolution: testRigor easily manages the 2FA, QR Code, and Captcha resolution through its simple English commands.
  • Email, Phone Call, and SMS Testing: Use simple English commands to test the email, phone calls, and SMS. These commands help validate 2FA scenarios, with OTPs and authentication codes being sent to email, phone calls, or via phone text.
  • File Upload/ Download Testing: Execute the test steps involving file download or file upload without the requirement of any third-party software. You can also validate the contents of the files using testRigor’s simple English commands.
  • Database Testing: Execute database queries and validate the results fetched.

testRigor enables you to test web, mobile (hybrid, native), API, and desktop apps with minimum effort and maintenance.
