Microsoft Edge Configuration For Automation

Microsoft Edge Configuration For Automation

Worksoft Certify 11 and above supports automation of web applications using Microsoft Edge. But, before starting automation, we need to make sure that certain configurations and settings are there in place for Windows operating system and the Edge browser so that Certify recognizes Edge and Edge accepts commands from the Certify Web Interface. 

In order to configure Microsoft Edge for automation, one will need to do the following:

  • Enable App Sideloading in Windows Settings
  • Enable extension developer features in Edge
  • Edit the HTML Configuration File
  • Verify If Worksoft Automation Extension is Enabled

Enable App Sideloading

In Microsoft Windows 10 or Windows Server, navigate to Settings>Update & Security>For Developers. Then select the Sideload apps radio button.

If there is any warning dialog/popup appears asking your confirmation on using developer features, then press on Yes button.
