What is the process to set up a VPN connection for Playwright tests either in the setup or config file or within GitHub Actions?


Sure, you can set up a VPN connection for your Playwright tests either in the setup or config file or within GitHub Actions.

Setup in Playwright

In your playwright.config.ts file, include the necessary VPN connection details and settings. Here's an example:

import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';

export default defineConfig({
  use: {
    browserContextOptions: {
      proxy: {
        server: 'vpn.ray.run',
        username: 'your-username',
        password: 'your-password',

Setup in GitHub Actions

Alternatively, you can establish a VPN connection in GitHub Actions before running your Playwright tests. Modify your workflow file as follows:

name: Run Tests

      • main

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

      • name: Set up VPN Connection
        uses: some-vpn-action@v1
          vpn-server-url: vpn.ray.run
          username-secret-name: vpn-username-secret
          password-secret-name: vpn-password-secret

      • name: Install Dependencies and Run Tests with Playwright
        run: |
          npm ci
          npx playwright install --with-deps
          npx playwright test

Replace some-vpn-action with the actual VPN connection action from the GitHub Actions marketplace. Also, provide the appropriate VPN server URL and secrets for username and password.

Remember to adjust these examples based on your specific VPN setup and requirements.
