How do I configure Playwright tests to run smoothly in an Azure Test Plans release pipeline?


Configuring Playwright Tests for Azure Test Plans Release Pipeline

To run your Playwright tests in an Azure Test Plans release pipeline without errors, follow these steps:

1. Install dependencies

First, ensure you have the required dependencies installed in your project. Add @playwright/test to your package.json file:

  "devDependencies": {
    "@playwright/test": "^1.17.0"

2. Create a test script

Create a test script using Playwright. For example, create a file called example.spec.ts with the following content:

import { test, expect } from '@playwright/test';

test('Check Ray.run homepage', async ({ page }) => {
  await page.goto('https://ray.run/');
  const title = await page.title();
  expect(title).toBe('Ray.run - Playwright Test Automation');

3. Configure the pipeline

In your Azure DevOps project, create a new release pipeline. Add an "npm" task to install the dependencies:

- task: Npm@1
    command: 'install'

Next, add a "Command Line" task to run the Playwright tests:

- script: npx playwright test
  displayName: 'Run Playwright tests'

4. Run the pipeline

Save and run the release pipeline. Your Playwright tests should now execute without errors.
