Automated Powerapps testing

Hi All,


I am looking out for a tool or approch by which we can automate the testing of PowerApps. How can we perform load testing on powerapps.

Hi @Anonymous,


Would you please describe more about what you are trying to test? What do you want to achieve? Detailed steps would be even better.

Re: Automated Powerapps testing

I'm experimenting with using Selenium IDE with PowerApps but straight away ran into some issues with selecting items in Galleries and populating Date Pickers. Early days, so maybe I can find a solution, but right now it looks like only a partial solution.

Selenium is available as an Add-In for Chrome and lets you record yourself performing tasks in a web browser, and then automatically repeat those tasks.

It appears to work with some PowerApps controls, but not all. It could be useful for semi-automated testing (with the user taking over when incompatible tasks need to occur) or load-testing if you speciflically develop compatible screens.

Re: Automated Powerapps testing

Good day PaulD1

I notice you have eexperience testing PowerApps with Selenium and facing some issues.

Is any other solutions to Automate PowerApps testing ? Will appreciate your advice!


I am currently experiencing issues with Automate drop down boxes or combo boxes with PowerApp.

Using Katalon Studio and Katalon Automated Recorder

Unable to find element for drop down 

When selecting element in IE 11 following code below comes and  


<div tabindex="12" title="TeamId" class="appmagic-dropdownLabelText no-focus-outline" role="combobox" aria-describedby="dropdown_siena_3bea9304963e952_instructions" aria-activedescendant="appmagic-dropdownFlyoutdropdown_siena_3bea9304963e952_0" aria-owns="appmagic-dropdownFlyoutdropdown_siena_3bea9304963e952" style="padding: 10px;" data-bind="&#10; attr: {&#10; title: properties.Tooltip() || null,&#10; role: displayMode() === AppMagic.Constants.DisplayMode.View ? null : 'combobox',&#10; 'aria-label': properties.AccessibleLabel() || null,&#10; 'aria-disabled': displayMode() === AppMagic.Constants.DisplayMode.View ? null :isDisabled,&#10; 'aria-readonly': displayMode() === AppMagic.Constants.DisplayMode.View ? null :isReadOnly,&#10; 'aria-owns': 'appmagic-dropdownFlyout' + id,&#10; 'aria-describedby': id + '_instructions'&#10; },&#10; text: selectedValue,&#10; style: {&#10; paddingTop: properties.PaddingTop,&#10; paddingRight: properties.PaddingRight,&#10; paddingBottom: properties.PaddingBottom,&#10; paddingLeft: properties.PaddingLeft&#10; }&#10; " touch-action="pan-x pan-y">Select a team</div>

Hi @ikeselman 
Sorry, nothing more to report on Selenium, we are just trying to be more disciplined about how we build apps (designing them in a hopefully more resilient manner) and doing more manual testing.

On the manual testing front, this looks interesting, though we haven't had a chance to try it out yet:

Re: Automated Powerapps testing

This is something that might be worth taking a look at from a testing perspective:

It uses OCR to help recognise the locations of controls on the screen and click or enter test data.

Somewhat complex to setup for us low-code folk (not a simple install, requires lots of pre-requisites) but I can see it being a useful tool to partially automate the testing for a mature App (something where the screen layout isn't routinely being modified).
