How to Get Started

Playwright Reporter for Sauce Labs

If you prefer to stay in Playwright, try the Playwright Sauce Labs Reporter. Connect to your Sauce Labs account from within your Playwright project to configure and run your tests directly from Playwright.


Special Characters in Test Names

We recommend that you avoid the use of special characters when naming your tests. If your test name contains any special characters, your test may not run or its artifacts may not be visible in our platform.

Webkit is not working on macOS 11 since Playwright 1.29.0
