Fixing Blank Screen Issue in Playwright Tests with Azure Test Plans

Experiencing a blank screen when running Playwright tests with Azure Test Plans? Don't worry, here's a quick guide to help you out.

Step 1: Check Configuration

First, ensure your playwright.config.ts file is properly configured. It should include the JUnit reporter configuration. Here's an example:

reporter: ['junit', { outputFile: 'test-results/e2e-junit-results.xml' }]

Step 2: Verify Azure Pipelines Settings

If you're using Azure Pipelines, check your pipeline configuration. Make sure you've defined the necessary triggers and pool settings for running Playwright tests.

Step 3: Install Dependencies

Before running tests, install Node.js and Playwright dependencies. Use NodeTool@0 task to install Node.js and npm ci to install project dependencies.

Step 4: Install Playwright Browsers

Run npx playwright install --with-deps to install all required browser binaries.

Step 5: Run Playwright Tests with Proper Parameters

Finally, run your Playwright tests command (npx playwright test) with correct parameters. Make sure to specify the project and shard index/total values correctly.

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve the blank screen issue. If you need further assistance, feel free to ask more specific questions.
