Codeception: Tell Chrome to automatically accept desktop notifications
September 1st, 2016
Set up Chrome environments in Codeception to allow Web Notifications.
If you're building a site that makes use of the handy Web Notifications API and want to test it in Codeception, you might want to tell your browser to enable notifications for the site. I had to fiddle a bit before getting this right, so hopefully it'll help somebody. In your
xxx-acceptance.suite.yml, here are a couple of flags:
class_name: AcceptanceTester modules: enabled: - Asserts - WebDriver: url: '/' browser: chrome restart: true capabilities: # Accept any JS alert boxes by default unexpectedAlertBehaviour: 'accept' chromeOptions: args: - 'enable-strict-powerful-feature-restrictions' - 'window-size=1440,900' - 'window-position=0,0' prefs: # Automatically accept desktop notifications 'profile.managed_default_content_settings.notifications': 1
