Setting the Test Cloud API Key for Xamarin.UITest
- PDF for offline use
Let us know how you feel about this
It is no longer necessary to provide a Xamarin Test Cloud API key for local testing.
In addition to running Xamarin.UITests in the cloud to test on multiple devices, they can also be run locally against a device or simulator. When these local test are runs Xamarin.UITest will attempt to authenticate the user over the internet using a Test Cloud API key. To facilitate offline usage once the initial authentication is complete, Xamarin.UITest will cache the results of the validation for a week.
Starting with Xamarin.UITest 1.1, it is no longer necessary to provide a team API key when running tests locally. If you receive a warning that an API key is missing, please upgrade to the most recent Xamarin.UITest NuGet package.
