Create a Remote Access Session in AWS Device Farm

For information about remote access sessions, see Sessions.

Prerequisites

  • Create a project in Device Farm. Follow the instructions in Create a Project, and then return to this page.

Create a Session with the Device Farm Console

  1. Sign in to the Device Farm console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/devicefarm.

  2. If you see the AWS Device Farm console home page, choose Get started.

  3. Choose a project from Projects or choose Create a new project.

  4. On the Remote access tab, choose Start a new session.

  5. Choose a device for your session. You can choose from the list of available devices or search for a device using the fields at the top of the list. You can search by:

    • Name

    • Platform

    • Operating system

    • Form factor

  6. In Session name, enter a name for the session.

  7. Choose Confirm and start session.

Next Steps

Device Farm starts the session as soon as the requested device is available, typically within a few minutes. The Device requested dialog box appears until the session starts. To cancel the session request, choose Cancel request.

After a session starts, if you should close the browser or browser tab without stopping the session or if the connection between the browser and the internet is lost, the session remains active for five minutes. After that, Device Farm ends the session. Your account is charged for the idle time.

After the session starts, you can interact with the device in the web browser.
