Run UIConductor tests with ATS

Android UIConductor (UICD) is a tool that lets users create testing workflows by recording UI interactions and validating the screen content. Android Test Station supports running tests exported from UICD.


To run UICD tests with ATS, you must import the UIConductor configuration, which contains the necessary test suites and device actions.

  1. Open Settings and navigate to the Config Sets tab.

  2. Click Import and select the UIConductor config set. You might need to authorize ATS to access Google Cloud Storage.

Run tests

  1. Schedule a UIConductor Test test run (under Test Suites > UIConductor). This test suite can be used to run any exported UICD tests.
