Getting Started with Telerik Test Studio and Testdroid Cloud


Dear Testdroiders,

We’ve been working closely with Telerik to enable integration with their Test Studio projects in Testdroid Cloud. We’ll be deep diving into all details in our forth-coming webinar – Telerik and Testdroid: Real Devices Testing Made Easy – on the 18th of May 11:00am ET. If you haven’t reserved a seat for you yet do it quickly – it’ll be soon running out of seats.

Step #1: Sign Up and Install Telerik Test Studio

Telerik Test Studio provides a free trial to experiment and try out the product and its capabilities, so first start out by visiting Telerik Test Studio website and download the product installer on your machine. The installation itself is fast and installation package small enough to get everything set up in minutes. While you are installing Test Studio you’ll be prompted to provide your user credentials:


If you are a new user select Sign Up on the left corner and fill in with details about yourself. In few seconds you’re done and everything is ready for a test creation.

Step #2: Create Your Tests for Android and iOS Apps

Whether you’re developing Android or iOS apps Telerik Test Studio can get you quickly up and running to build your tests. The 10-minutes video below shows how you can get started with an iOS example, plus showcasing few advanced tips on what things you should consider when creating your tests.

Also, you can try out an example application with ready-build tests to get better understanding what test package contains and how tests should be created.

Step #3: Verify You Got Everything for Test Package

One of the best parts of this integration is that everything is output from Telerik Test Studio and you don’t need to tweak the package anyhow. The typical test package contains the folder structure as follows:

This step is for educational purpose only and you don’t actually have to do it.

Step #4: Upload Your Application (APK or IPA) and Test Package

First, if you don’t have a valid Testdroid Cloud account please create one and log in at

After you logged in, you can create a Telerik Android or Telerik iOS project under the project view.

Create either one and click the test run creation button ‘+’ on the right corner of the test run view widget. This will take you the test run creation wizard and application upload goes as with any Testdroid Cloud projects. In the step #2 (test selection) upload your test package (.zip file) and select the proper type for the test (aka Test list name):

In the third step (device selection) you can select which device group will be used for the test run. As there are plenty of pre-defined device groups in Testdroid Cloud pick up any of those or alternatively you can also build your own based on your testing needs. This can be done under Device Groups and after you’ve created a device group it will show up in the test run creation wizard:

NOTE! Device Group can only contain either Android or iOS devices.

Now, you are ready to get your test run started (just finish the wizard or click green-colored Start button on the bottom) and your test run results will be ready just in few minutes!

Step #5: Review Test Results, Logs, Screenshots, and More!

After the test run is completed all test results, including full logcats, performance metrics about CPU and memory consumption, screenshots and all fine-grained details are available under each test run:

If you click any of test runs shown under the project view you’ll get more detailed information about success/failure, test steps, screenshots and all the other assets created during the test run. The following summary and device view will be shown:

Now, click any of those device labels (three in the picture above) and you’ll be directed to the view where all of those test run results are shown.
