Automating AWS Device Farm - AWS Device Farm

Automating AWS Device Farm

Programmatic access to Device Farm is a powerful way to automate the common tasks that you need to accomplish, such as scheduling a run or downloading the artifacts for a run, suite, or test. The AWS SDK and AWS CLI provide means to do so.

The AWS SDK provides access to every AWS service, including Device Farm, Amazon S3, and more. For more information, see

Example: Using the AWS SDK to start a Device Farm run and collect artifacts

The following example provides a beginning-to-end demonstration of how you can use the AWS SDK to work with Device Farm. This example does the following:

  • Uploads a test and application packages to Device Farm

  • Starts a test run and waits for its completion (or failure)

  • Downloads all artifacts produced by the test suites

This example depends on the third-party requests package to interact with HTTP.
