Sauce Labs Room for Improvement

Brook Beam
Lead Software Test Automation Engineer at a tech vendor
The Jenkins Sauce OnDemand plugin could have more options available to tap into more of the custom capabilities Sauce Labs actually supports. Currently, in order to tap into these capabilities, a programmatic solution is required from the test code rather than being able to configure them via the Jenkins Plugin UI, e.g., desktop resolution, browser automation binary versions, remote Selenium version, and browser console logs. These are all things it would be nice to be able to customize straight from the Jenkins Plugin UI. In our experience, we have also had some issues with the Sauce Connect Proxy on our Jenkins servers failing to start, which makes the optimal CI/CD pipeline come to a halt. User account management needs an overhauls, allowing for user groups rather than just a hierarchy structure. Test job queuing is a first-come-first-serve, meaning there is no inbuilt way to queue batches of jobs from different Jenkins servers/accounts. View full review »

Luis Arley Gomez De Oro
Executive Chef at a non-tech company
It would be nice for it to ask for the URL along with browser/operating system I want to try, but not for it to simply ask for a combination. I want to be able to start ten at the same time. I would also like to put a username and password before the test launch instead of entering ten tabs and having to put the same information over and over again. View full review »

Integration with Github, as well as several other similar tools, could be improved. However, Sauce Labs appears to be on that track. With all of the innovations that they have made over the past year and a half, I am looking forward to the changes they have planned for the future. View full review »
