2. External tools

For each application type there is a specific engine to run tests under it. For instance, Web applications will be handled by the Selenium Web browser automation tool.

The main goal of Cerberus is to gather this tool ecosystem to provide a common way to describe and run tests, whatever the kind of application type.

Hereafter the list of compatible application types and their associated external tool:

Table 1. Application type and associated external tools
Application types Associated external tool



Mobile (Android, Iphone)




Web services

Cerberus internal implementation

The following sections will cover installation and configuration procedures for each associated external tool, and interface description with cloud-based cross-browser testing tools.

2.1. Selenium

Installation :

java -jar seleniumjar.jar


java -jar seleniumjar.jar -port 4545
  • To launch Selenium in hub mode, type these commands :

java -jar (path/to/)selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar -role hub
java -jar (path/to/)selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar -role node -nodeConfig (path/to/)DefaultNode.json

2.2. Appium

2.2.1. Table of Contents

Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid and mobile Web applications. It drives iOS, Android, and Windows applications using the WebDriver protocol.

This procedure covers installation and configuration of Appium v.1.6.2+.

2.2.2. Appium server installation

Classic installation

Install Android SDK v.1.7+. See official documentation here and here for more details.

Docker install


# Note: It requires docker-compose 1.6.0+
# Usage: docker-compose up -d
version: '2'

  # Selenium hub
    image: selenium/hub:3.7.1
      - 4444:4444

  # Appium Docker Android
    image: appium/appium
      - selenium_hub
    privileged: true
#      - /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb
      - ~/.android:/root/.android
      - ./localapk/:/apk/  # used to push apk to install
      - 4723:4723
      - CONNECT_TO_GRID=True
      - SELENIUM_HOST=selenium_hub
      # Enable it for msite testing
      #- BROWSER_NAME=chrom


  1. Install Xcode 8.1+

  2. Install the Apple Developer Tools via this external documentation

  3. Follow the complete procedure from this external documentation and apply the following commands and fixes:

    1. Carthage cannot be installed via npm but brew. Thus, install Carthage by executing:

      brew install carthage
    2. Execute the following additional commands:

      npm install -g ios-deploy --unsafe-perm=true
      npm install -g deviceconsole
      brew uninstall ideviceinstaller
      brew uninstall libimobiledevice
      brew install --HEAD libimobiledevice
      brew unlink libimobiledevice && brew link libimobiledevice
      brew install ideviceinstaller
      brew unlink ideviceinstaller && brew link ideviceinstaller
      Note about the current Appium version from npm

      At the time of writing, the installed Appium version (1.6.2) from the above procedure doesn’t work properly with Cerberus. Only the 1.6.3-SNAPSHOT version was able to correctly start application. The following commands will help you to install the latest version of Appium (extracted from the official documentation):

      git clone
      cd appium
      npm install -g mocha
      npm install -g gulp
      npm install -g gulp-cli
      npm install
      gulp transpile
Application sign configuration

The latest version of Appium uses the appium-xcuitest-driver which depend on the Web Driver Agent that need to be deployed on the tested device. Thus, the Appium server’s host needs to be configured to be allowed to deploy application on tested device.

Appium server’s host must:

  1. Have its associated Apple account registered to a Apple Team Development

  2. Have downloaded the iOS Development signing identity associated to the registered Apple Team Development

  3. Have downloaded a provisioning profile associated to the registered Apple Team Development that allow:

    • at least the Web Driver Agent application (identified by the com.facebook.WebDriverAgentLib bundle identifier)

    • the tested device to install the Web Driver Agent application

Once all of these previous prerequisities are met, then create a appium.xcconfig file and fill it with the following lines (where <Team ID> is your Development Team identifier):

CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY = iPhone Developer

This file will be used further by execution. Look at the Run section for more details.


Run Appium server can differ following the way you installed it.

Installation from npm

If Appium has been installed from npm, then simply starts Appium server by executing:

Installation from Appium sources

If Appium has been installed from its sources, we encourage to create an executable file to start and configure Appium server more easily. Then:

  1. Create a appium file and fill it with the following lines

    cd /path/to/appium/sources && node . "$@"
  2. Make this file executable

    chmod +x /path/to/the/appium/file
  3. Locate the root directory of this executable file and add it to your PATH variable by adding this line to your ~/.bash_profile (or any terminal session start) file:

    export PATH=/path/to/the/appium/file/root/directory:$PATH
  4. Restart your terminal session

  5. Start Appium server by executing

Note for IOS application testing

As viewed from previous section, Appium has to deal with Apple application sign. This could be done by sending the xcodeConfigFile capability to the Appium server.

But you may want to use the same value for any request, because the Apple Development Team is often unique within an organization. It could be the same for the realDeviceLogger capability because Appium can always using deviceconsole as real device logger.

This can be achieved by starting the Appium server with the --default-capabilities option and giving it the list of default capabilities. For maintenance reason, we recommend to delegate definition of the list of capabilities into a JSON file as the following:

  1. Create a file named common.caps (for instance)

  2. Fill it with your default capabilities

        "xcodeConfigFile": "/path/to/appium.xcconfig",
    	"realDeviceLogger": "/usr/local/lib/node_modules/deviceconsole/deviceconsole"
  3. Then start Appium server by executing

    appium --default-capabilities /path/to/common.caps

2.2.3. Client use

The following section will show different use cases to connect to the Appium server.

Execute mobile test case with Cerberus

Once you wrote your test case, Cerberus can execute it to the desired mobile by configuring the associated Robot

Inside Cerberus, open the Robot page (Run → Robot), and, depending on the application type, fill the Robot with the following configuration:


Robot definition

Robot capabilities

Values are given as example. feel free to modify them according to your needs.

Robot definition

Robot capabilities


Values are given as example. feel free to modify them according to your needs.

The two last capabilities xcodeConfigFile and realDeviceLogger are not necessary if given at Appium startup. See the previous section for more details.


Inspection is used to locate application’s element by identifier, XPath, etc. Theses values can so be use inside Cebrerus to describe automated test cases.

Inspection can be done by using the Appium client interface.


Install latest client from the official page.


Appium client interface has to be configured to be only used for inspection. to have application’s element XPath for instance):

From the General settings menu:

  • Fill the Server address input field with the Appium server address

  • Fill the Port input field with the Appium server port

  • Unable the Use Remote Server option

General settings

For Android case, open the Android settings menu and:

  • Fill the App Path with the absolute path (or URL) of the application APK

  • Fill the Platform Name by Android

  • Fill the Automation Name by Appium

  • Fill the Platform Version by your device platform version

  • Fill the Device Name by your device name

Android settings

For IOS case, open the IOS settings menu and:

  • Fill the App Path with the absolute path (or URL) of the application IPA

  • Fill the Force device input filed by your device name

  • Fill the Platform version input field by your platform version. It must be lower or equal than your Xcode SDK supported version (for instance, 10.1 by using Xcode 8).

  • Fill the UDID input field by your device’s UDID number

IOS settings


Once Appium client is correctly configured, simply click on the Android or IOS radio button following the application definition and then click on the Inspector button.

List of Appium server capabilities

2.3. Sikuli

2.3.1. Sikuli installation

Sikuli is an open source project that automates anything you see on the screen of your desktop computer running Windows, Mac or some Linux/Unix. It uses image recognition powered by OpenCV to identify and control GUI components. This is handy in cases when there is no easy access to a GUI’s internals or the source code of the application or web page you want to act on..

This procedure covers installation and configuration of SikuliX 1.1.1.

Sikuli have to be installed only on the server where the test will run (on the robot server)!

Cerberus will interact with Sikuli that will control the system on which the test will be executed. Please notice that Sikuli have not to be installed on the Cereberus Server, but only on robot server.


SikuliX can be used on systems with :

  • Windows XP and later including Windows 8 and 10 (32-Bit or 64-Bit)

  • Mac OSX 10.6 and later including 10.10 and 10.11 (64-Bit only)

  • Linux/Unix systems depending on the availability of the prerequisites (32-Bit or 64-Bit)

In any case you must have a valid Java installation of at least Java 7 (JRE (runtime only) or JDK (runtime + development kit)). It is highly recommended, to always have the latest stable Oracle/Sun Java version on your system (currently Java 8, does not work with Java 9). Equivalent versions of OpenJDK should work as well and are recommended on Linux systems..

On 64-Bit capable systems a Java 64-Bit version is strongly recommended. SikuliX will detect Java’s bitness at runtime and select the fitting native library set automatically. So you might freely switch between different Java versions with the same SikuliX on one machine.


After having downloaded sikulixsetup.jar, you should consider the following recommendations, before doing anything:

  • select a prominent folder that is intended, to permanently contain all artifacts making up SikuliX

  • the path to this folder and its name should not contain any blanks or special characters (example: C:\SikuliX)

  • the folder should not be a program or application folder with special system access restrictions (must be freely user writeable) into this folder copy/move sikulixsetup…​.jar

    1. launch sikulixsetup.jar

    2. Choose either the option 1 (Full package with IDE) or the option 2.

    3. After having made your selections, click the button [Setup Now].

If everything works well, after successful internal download of the needed packages, you will get some intermediate yellow badges, hopefully positive popups from the tests and a final success message.

 — You might find the following files in your SikuliX setup folder:

SikuliX-1.1.0-SetupLog.txt --- contains debug information of setup workflow
sikulixsetup-1.1.0.jar (might have a lengthy version suffix)
runsikulix(.cmd) --- command script for commandline usages of SikuliX
sikulix.jar --- (non-Mac systems only) SikuliX IDE and scripting support (option 1) --- (Mac systems) Mac application, should be moved to /Applications (option 1)
sikulixapi.jar --- Java programming support (option2)
See official documentation here for more details.
Connect Cerberus to Sikuli

You’ll need to download the project cerberus-extension-sikuli to interface Cerberus with your sikuli server.

  1. Download the cerberus-extension-sikuli.

  2. Download Selenium Standalone Server.

  3. Unzip cerberus-extension-sikuli and put the cerberus-extension-sikuli-x.x.x-full.jar it in the same folder than the selenium server.

  4. Create a bat/sh file with the following command lines:

    • For a FAT Client

No needs of selenium server, you can use this cerberus extention in a standalone mode (since cerberus-extension-sikuli-1.1.0-full).

start /b java -jar cerberus-extension-sikuli-x.x.x-full.jar
  • For a WebApplication

Injecting the main servlet of this cerberus extension starting the selenium hub.

start /b java -jar selenium-server-standalone-x.xx.x.jar -role hub -port 5555
start /b java -cp selenium-server-standalone-x.xx.x.jar;cerberus-extension-sikuli-x.x.x.jar org.openqa.grid.selenium.GridLauncher -role node -hub http://localhost:5555/grid/register -port 5556 -servlets org.sikuliserver.ExecuteSikuliAction

2.3.2. OCR setting

OCR (optical character recognition) can be enabled with sikuli, please follow the procedure below to set sikuli.

  • When installing Sikulie, select option 3 :


  • When installation is done, run sikuli IDE. Click on File > Preferences > More options Then select toolboxes Allow searching for text / Allow OCR :


Cerberus should now be able to find text.

3. Cloud

For Web and Mobile testing, Cerberus can be interfaced with cloud-based testing tool in order to avoid managing the complexity of a robot farm on multiple combination of operating system and browser. Those cloud service also provide a huge variety of native device to run your tests on.

3.1. Browserstack

3.1.1. Introduction

You can use Browserstack as a robot infrastructure. Thanks to Browserstack support of Open Source projects, Cerberus benefit from Browserstack service in its integration chain. Many functionnal tests are executed through BrowserStack, which allows to validate Cerberus regression on a daily basis.


Browserstack advanced integration covers:

  • An automatic mapping of capabilities (test name, tag/build values, verbose execution level,…​ ). Parameter cerberus_browserstack_defaultexename can be used in order to tune the name of the execution on Browserstack side (default to Exe : %EXEID%).

  • Automatic update of execution status

  • Easy access from Cerberus to Browserstack execution from the robot tab or go to menu.

Execution Shortcut

To run your tests on BrowserStack Automate, you must:

3.1.2. 1) Upload the app:

According to browserstack documentation the app can be uploaded through it’s REST API:

curl -u "USERNAME:ACCESS_KEY" -X POST -F "file=@/path/to/app/file/Application-debug.apk"

The service answer will give your the app hash id: bs://fecad32e3d0900192ccc27747d037ead7427b1ba

That ID needs to be attached to the application / environment (as an URL).

3.1.3. 2) Create/Update the Robot

To execute the tests with browserstack the robot executor must be added/updated with the following values:

  • Hostname -

  • Host Username - browserstack_username

  • Host Password - browserstack_access_key

  • Port - 80

  • Device Name - Name of the device you want to use. ex : Google Pixel 3

Robot Configuration

Optionaly, you can add some extra capabilities to appium such as:

realMobile: true

os_version: os to test

Extra Capabilities
The app and device capabilities will be automaticaly added by Cerberus taken from application and robot configuration.

3.1.4. 3) Update the application

The environment of the application to test with Cerberus must have the correct URL defined with the hashed id: bs://<hashed_appid>

Application Settings

3.1.5. 4) Trigger the test

Go to Run test page and select the test you want to execute with the previously created robot and trigger the execution.

3.2. Lambdatest

3.2.1. Introduction

You can use LambdaTest as a robot infrastructure.


LambdaTest advanced integration covers:

  • An automatic mapping of capabilities (test name, tag/build values, verbose execution level,…​ ). Parameter cerberus_lambdatest_defaultexename can be used in order to tune the name of the execution on LambdaTest side (default to `Exe : %EXEID% - %TESTDESCRIPTION% `).

  • Automatic update of execution status

  • Easy access from Cerberus to LambdaTest execution from the robot tab or go to menu.

Execution Shortcut

To run your tests on LambdaTest Automate, you must:

3.2.2. Create/Update the Robot

To execute the tests with LambdaTest the robot executor must be added/updated with the following values:

  • Hostname -

  • Host Username - lambdatest_username

  • Host Password - lambdatest_access_key

Robot Configuration

Optionaly, you can add some extra capabilities

Cerberus Public API & Events

4. Cerberus Public API

When integrating Cerberus with any external tool, public API must be used. All public API are version managed in order to allow secure and stable integration. Each time the signature of the API is modified or behaviour has changed, it is implemented on a new version keeping existing version only subject to bugfix changes.

Old version of Public API can disappear (after a deprecated period) from one version to another. In order to perform the impact analysis of the systems that are calling your Cerberus installation, you can use the parameter cerberus_log_publiccalls. Setting the parameter to Y will log every public API calls performed, reporting any deprecated calls that needs to be migrated to newer version of the same API.

All Public API are secured using API Key. You can enable the API Authentification using the parameter cerberus_apikey_enable and define up to 5 values of API Key from cerberus_apikey_value1 to cerberus_apikey_value5. The API Key value must be added on every calls inside the HTTP header apikey.

curl -X GET -H "apikey: 498e2d.............b4efee62fe0" http://localhost:8080/Cerberus/ManageV001

4.1. Test Execution API

This is the APi that can be used on the test perimeter (getting testcase information, and manage executions) :



Version List


Allow to insert testcase execution into Cerberus Queue for execution






Provide all the information about a tag (with executions)




Provide a list of test cases filtered by some criteria.



Return the number of execution performed on WORKING test cases that match the following criterias. To be used for monitoring purpose.



Used to provide various execution counters as well as a global OK or KO status based on the number and status of the execution done on a specific tag.

/ResultCI /ResultCIV001 /ResultCIV002 /ResultCIV003 /ResultCIV004


Trigger a single testcase excution either in a synchronous or asynchronous way.

Used to inform Cerberus that a new Build and Revision has been deployed on a system.



Used to inform Cerberus about an event that occured on a given environment.



Used to create or update a release entry of an application in a 'NONE' build and 'NONE' revision.


FR Something is incorrect/missing in this section? Feel free to submit modification.

4.3. Administration API

This is the APi that can be used on the integration perimeter (change environment status) :



Version List


This API should be used pior to perform database backup (global stop and start) or pior to restart an instance (instance stop). It is used to start and stop Cerberus instance or global system in a clean way by stopping submitting new executions and waiting pending execution to finish.

action parameter can take the various values: start, stop, cleanMemory, runQueueJob

scope parameter can be either global or instance. It is used only when action parameter is either start or stop

NB: The timeout in order to wait for all pending execution to stop can be configured with Cerberus parameter cerberus_manage_timeout (default to 300 seconds).

/ManageV001 or /manageV001

5. Cerberus Event Hook

5.1. Introduction

Cerberus has integrated a hook mecanism management. That allow to react on some event in order to trigger asynchroniously some external notification or synchronize external systems (for reporting or test referencial). On top of the public API available, that feature allow a better, easier and faster integration of Cerberus with external tools. In stead of calling the API to get the data from Cerberus, you can ask Cerberus to call an external system once the corresponding Cerberus event occurs. No more periodic refresh of the systems, just push the data from Cerberus directly when necessary.

For that purpose for every event, you can link 0 to many connectors with the following parameters associated :

  • Object1 and Object2 are used to filter the hook trigger before trigerring it. Those values depend on the event reference.

  • Hook recipient correspond to the recipent of the connector. It can be a URL or list of email depending on the connector.

  • Hook channel correspond to the channel recipent of the connector. It is most of the time optional as not used by many connectors.

  • Active boolean in order to temporary disable the hook

  • General description of the hook

5.2. Events Referencial

9 events are available to be plugged :


    Occurs when a campaign is triggered.

Object1 : Filter the name of the campaign [optional]


    Occurs when a campaign ends. That event happened whatever the result of the campaign is.

Object1 : Filter the name of the campaign [optional]


    Occurs when a campaign ends with a CI Score higher that threshold. In other word, that happens only when the global result of the campaign is KO.

Object1 : Filter the name of the campaign [optional]


    Occurs when a single Testcase execution is triggered.

Object1 : Filter the Test Folder [optional]

Object2 : Filter the Testcase ID [optional]


    Occurs when a single Testcase execution ends. That event happened whatever the result of the execution is.

Object1 : Filter the Test Folder [optional]

Object2 : Filter the Testcase ID [optional]


    Occurs when a single Testcase execution ends during its last attempt (when retry feature is activated). That event happened whatever the result of the execution is.
    That event is only and always triggered once for every testcase execution that has been submited.

Object1 : Filter the Test Folder [optional]

Object2 : Filter the Testcase ID [optional]


    Occurs when a Testcase has been created.

Object1 : Filter the Test Folder [optional]

  • Homepage filters now also apply on all summary counters (in order to be consistent with the graphs on the page).

Improvements / New features

  • Added status code for Logs (Menu Administration / Log Viewer).

  • Size of war binary reduced by cleaning a few unnecessary maven dependencies.

  • Edit Robot button is now available directly from execution page.

  • MANUAL Proxy configuration is also supported (on top of NETWORKTRAFFIC).

  • Copy to Clipboard button added on APIKey User screen.

  • CSV file can now be downloaded from test data lib screen.

  • new variable %property.PROP-0.nbrows% that returns the number of rows of a property.

  • new options on actions and controls in order to force screenshot before and after it gets executed (that avoid additional takeScreenshot control)

  • new options on actions and controls in order to add a wait in ms before and after it gets executed (that avoid additional wait action). This is to be used with care as Cerberus already wait for an element before interacting with it.

  • new parameter cerberus_pdfcampaignreportdisplayciresult_boolean in order to hide/display the cicd information on pdf report.

  • PDF Files content can now be controlled after being downloaded (text content + page numbers + pdf certificates information).

  • getRobotFile action now save the files on their initial format. Those files can be manually checked and saved.

  • Improved navigation between Testcase script page and execution page (step focused is kept during execution and between the 2 screens).

  • Screenshot preview is now bigger.

  • Screenshot order display on execution page correspond to the timing of its creation. #2522

  • Allow multiple extraParameters on robot chrome (space character is used as separator).

  • Added %system.ROBOTSESSIONID% and %system.ROBOTPROVIDERSESSIONID% system variable.

  • Allow to have optional subdata and feed cerberus_testdatalib_subdataDefaultValue parameter to defined its default value (Thanks to Promod team ;-)).

  • Make Numeric conversion more robust (ex : 'EUR 123 123.5 €' will be converted to 123123.5 before performing the control)

  • More robust FTP connector (Timeout support, FTP URL can be edited preserving secrets to be modified, more detailed and precise error messages)

  • SFTP support on call service Action.

  • A Property length of 0 now will take all available rows of the data (whether it is csv, internal, sql or service related). All existing properties with lengths of 0 will be changed to 1 in order to secure the behavior is unchanged.

  • Value1, 2 and 3 are no longer decoded when not used. (for ex, switching condition to 'always' or 'never' no longer force you to empty parameter values that could crash during decode) fix #2038

Warning to be considered before applying the version (deprecated features)

  • Service /GetTestCasesV001 is no longer working. Please use /GetTestCasesV002 in stead or (even better) the /api/public/testcases/Examples/0001A endpoint.
