How do I maximize logging information with the RP agent while using the Playwright API directly?


Maximize Logging with RP Agent and Playwright API

To get the most out of your logging with the RP agent and Playwright API, you'll want to use Playwright's trace viewer. This tool gives you a detailed view of your tests, including actions, timing, parameters, return values, and logs.

Local Testing

When running tests locally, start recording a trace by setting the --trace flag to "on". Use the command npx playwright test --trace on.

npx playwright test --trace on

This records traces for each test and generates an HTML report.

Continuous Integration Testing

For tests on continuous integration (CI), configure traces to run on the first retry of a failed test. Set the trace: 'on-first-retry' option in your test configuration file (playwright.config.ts).

module.exports = {
  use: {
    trace: 'on-first-retry',

This produces a trace.zip file for each retried test.

Using the Trace Viewer

The trace viewer lets you inspect your tests in detail. You can see actions, their time and duration, console output, network requests, and source code.

By integrating the Playwright trace viewer with RP Agent logging, you get detailed logging while still benefiting from Playwright API's other features.

Remember, this advice is based on the information provided. If you have specific requirements or constraints not covered here, please provide more context.
