CI/CD with Mobile UI Automation Testing


I am starting a new Android Project with Appium UI Automation Testing check after every push. My Appium project uses an APK file to run and is saved on a different repository than the Android Project (Stand-alone).

Question 1: Does anyone have any experiences with saving the newly built APK file after the new changes into another Repo?

Question 2: After saving the new APK file into the Appium Project, how can I run this project through the pipeline to ensure that the new changes haven't affected any previous functionalities/UI tests. This question includes how can I setup an Emulator in the pipeline so that my tests run on.


Thank you for any contribution.

Hi @tarek_o

Thank you for reaching out to the community.

About your question #1, I believe what you can do is to save or upload the built APK file in your repository Downloads section via API and retrieve it via API as well.
You can check out this documentation for more information.

About your question #2, you can check out this blog post with detailed examples on how to set up Android deployment with Bitbucket Pipelines using Gradle.

Hope it helps and let me know how if you have further questions.

Hi @Mark C ,

Thank you for your response. The blog post regarding Bitbucket's CI/CD is really helpful.

I have used similar blog to implement my CI/CD where I save the APK as an Artifact and used it in following steps in my Automation.

Best Regards,

Tarek O
