I’m interested in using Visual Testing with my existing Sauce Labs account.  If I run a visual test, will it consume some of my available Concurrent Sessions?

At the moment, the answer is yes, and no.


Sauce Labs currently offers 3 Visual Comparison products:

  • Sauce Visual End2End Testing
  • Legacy Visual End2End Testing
  • Visual Component Testing


Legacy and Visual Component Testing have their own concurrency entitlement, agreed upon during the sales process.  These systems run on their own infrastructure and do not have access to the full Sauce Labs feature set.  They are also unavailable to new customers.


Sauce Visual End2End Testing runs on the standard Sauce Labs infrastructure and gives you full access to insights and analytics, as well as all the other features of the Sauce Labs platform.  Visual Tests ran with Sauce Visual End2End Testing will use your Sauce Labs concurrency entitlement.
