Adding an Android TV / Fire TV device to Suitest¶
Suitest supports Android TV and Amazon Fire TV devices running Android version 5.0 or later (the apps must be built with at least API level 25). After setting up an Android TV device you will be able to run automated end-to-end tests on Android TV apps.
Enable developer mode and ADB / USB debugging¶
On your Android TV device make sure the following are enabled:
- Developer mode
- ADB debugging
- USB debugging
- Apps from Unknown Sources
For example: On the Amazon Fire TV all the settings necessary are located under Settings / My Fire TV / Developer options.
Locate the IP address of your Android TV device¶
The current IP address is usually displayed on the Network status page of the device. Go to Settings > About > Network and look for the IP address. The location may vary from device to device.
Static IP address: To prevent connection failures due to the device IP address changes you should consider configuring your DHCP server to assign static IP address to your device.
Add the Android TV device to Suitest¶
Open the Device wizard, select Add physical device, choose Android TV from the platform list and then press Next.
On the next screen fill in all the fields and press Next. Suitest will verify that it can connect to your device.
Allow debug mode
When connecting to the device for the first time the device may popup a message asking you to allow the debug mode. Be sure to allow it or else the device will refuse connection from Suitest.
The rest of the process will complete automatically. After this the Android TV device will become available in your Suitest account. Suitest will automatically determine the name of the device. You'll be able to change it later on the device management page.
