Example Project

Looking for an example? Our Sample iOS Project has an integration ready to test.

  1. Finish the prerequisites
  2. Download the sample project from Github
  3. Add your axe DevTools for Mobile API key to app/build.gradle
  4. Adjust the values for cloudURL and securityToken in configFile.json to match your Perfecto cloud:
  "cloudURL": "<<perfecto-cloud-name>>",
  "securityToken": "<<security-token>>",
  1. Add your security token as an environment variable (SECURITY_TOKEN) (or attach to end of the next command)
  2. In Terminal, run a test on Perfecto: ./gradlew perfecto-android-inst -PconfigFileLocation=configFile.json -PsecurityToken=$SECURITY_TOKEN

There are 3 files in the sample project used for Perfecto integration: app/build.gradle, configFile.json, and build.gradle.

Add Perfecto to Your Espresso Test


  1. In your project's build.gradle, add:

repositories {
  maven { url "" }

dependencies {
  classpath 'com.perfectomobile.instrumentedtest.gradleplugin:plugin:+'
  1. In app/build.gradle, add:
plugins {
  id 'com.perfectomobile.instrumentedtest.gradleplugin'
  1. Add Perfectos configuration JSON and review the values cloudURL, securityToken, apkPath and testApkPath to match your Perfecto authentication and application.
  "cloudURL": "<<cloud name>>",
  "securityToken": "<<security-token>>",
  "numOfDevices": 2,
  "jobName": "Espresso_Axe_Sample",
  "jobNumber": 1,
  "branch": "some_branch",
  "projectName": "My_Espresso_project",
  "projectVersion": "v1.0",
  "tags": [
  "apkPath": "app/build/outputs/apk/debug/app-debug.apk",
  "testApkPath": "app/build/outputs/apk/androidTest/debug/app-debug-androidTest.apk",
  "installationDetails": {
    "preCleanUp": "true"
  "postExecution": {
    "uninstall": "false"
  "debug": false,
  "failBuildOnFailure": true,
  "takeScreenshotOnTestFailure": true,
  "shard": true,
  "testTimeout": 60000


Once your project is setup, run a test on Perfecto from the terminal:

./gradlew perfecto-android-inst -PconfigFileLocation=configFile.json -PsecurityToken=$SECURITY_TOKEN

cloudURL should reflect your Perfecto cloud URL and securityToken should reflect your Perfecto's security token.
