Configuring Microsoft Edge for Test Studio Automation

The new Microsoft Edge is supported both for recording and execution in Test Studio web tests. To configure Microsoft Edge for web automation with Test Studio you need to perform few steps in advance.

1. Install Progress Extensions

Install the latest Edge extension from the Chrome Web Store - Progress Test Studio Extension.

If you face any troubles when installing or enabling the extensions please expand the Extension Install Procedure section below.

2. Browser Calibration

To ensure flawless and consistent automation process there are some settings to apply to the browser. We call this browser calibration and have implemented a feature to automatically calibrate the browser out of the box and no manual interaction is required.

If you need to double check manually, if all settings are correct, expand the Manual Configuration section below.


Extension Install Procedure +



1.  The Edge extension is not automatically installed with the Test Studio installation.

In case you haven't performed the above recommendation to install the Progress extension manually, when you first start recording against Edge, the browser will load the recording start page and will try to load the extension. If that is missing, the recorder will search for it for the set *ClientReady* Timeout (the default is 60 seconds).

Wait For Extension

2.  In case the Progress extension is not yet loaded after that timeout a link to the Web Store will be displayed to install the extension.

Get Extension

3.  By clicking on Get It Free From Chrome Web Store you will be directly navigated to the Progress extension in the Web Store.
