Perfecto Connect

Perfecto Connect is a secured network connection that supports testing mobile apps, web apps, and websites hosted on the local development network. The Perfecto Connect feature opens a direct connection between Perfecto Lab devices and a local network or backend server or a staged app not publicly available in other environments. This dedicated tunnel connection precludes the need of opening a VPN tunnel or defining the Perfecto Lab in the IP safe list of the development network.

Perfecto Connect involves:

  • Using a simple client command-line interface to establish the dedicated tunnel to the Perfecto Lab.
  • Selecting devices in the Automation script and associating them to the relevant tunnel.
  • Running the tests on the applications that reside in the secure zone of the development network.
Important: For the Perfecto Connect script to run successfully, the device language must be English.

The key values of the Perfecto Connect solution include:

  • Support for both mobile devices and desktop web devices.
  • The service fits any digital interactive, automation, and CI test Executions.
  • No installation is necessary, just execute the client application.
  • Association of multiple devices on the same tunnel
  • Support for tunnel initiation from macOS/Windows/Linux workstations.
  • Support (for debugging and troubleshooting purposes) of customer’s bridging proxy (installed on workstation) – including support for Charles proxy and others.
  • Debug over real devices from the customer's local network/backend environment
