Hi I currently in the process of investigating doing mobile test automation(iOS) for the salesforce1 app to verify that changes we've made to the desktop version are present in the mobile version and to run regression tests. Is it possible to get access to files such as .ipa and .app from salesforce that have a resigned certificate for 3rd party testing?

There is no way you can officially get access to the Salesforce1 IPA and APK files. Of course, there are other tricks in which you can recover these files from the device but they wilL NOT obviously be re-signed for 3rd party testing.

Considering your requirement, the best way to do mobile automation testing is to use the Chrome iOS emulation capabilities with the /one/one.app emulator, you can then use it with something like Selenium ChromeDriver

  • Thanks very much I will try this and let you know the out come. This should be a very simple task as I already have a selenium framework set up for desktop automation. Dec 28, 2015 at 16:16

  • I have just say somewhere the /one/one.app will not be supported from now on ,so this solution will no longer be valid ..... Jan 14, 2016 at 21:12

updated information related to mobile automation of salesforce1 is not easy to find. Any advice? Android studio? Eclipse obsolete plugin?
