The AWS Device Farm Jenkins plugin provides developers with a mechanism for integrating the Device Farm testing service into continuous integration workflows, enabling build, test, and deployment on real devices, which is critical to delivering high quality applications that delight customers. The plugin is now compatible with the latest version of Jenkins.

With this latest release, AWS Device Farm enables testing of Web Applications in addition to native and hybrid mobile applications, providing significant improvement in efficiencies for development teams to test all of their apps with one infrastructure.

In addition, this release allows developers to select the Appium test framework version when scheduling a test. It also provides the ability to specify the device state such as radios, extra data, and device location. Similarly, the plugin can now also configure execution parameters including max job timeout, video recording, and performance data capture. Finally, developers can set Device Farm errors to be ignored in build results, and have the ability to pass test filters for XCUI tests.

AWS Device Farm is available from all regions and based out of the US West (Oregon) region.
