Is it possible to divide test suite to run tests in parallel?


Suppose I have 50 tests in my suite and 5 devices in my device pool. Instead of running all 50 tests on each device, is it possible to run 10 tests on each device? I want to reduce the run time of our test suite.

I regret to inform you that this is not currently possible. Currently, Device farm does not support mapping certain tests in test suites to run on different devices so that they can be run in parallel. There would be a need to separate these tests into multiple test bundles and then scheduling a run for each bundle.

I can see there is an existing Feature request for this functionality. While I am unable to comment on if/when this feature may get released, I request you to keep an eye on our What's New and Blog pages for any new feature announcements.

  • Thank you. I will investigate what it will take to split our suite into multiple runs. Is there anywhere I can see the feature request itself?
