var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver');
const edge = require("selenium-webdriver/edge");
const { getRequestlyExtension, importRequestlySharedList } = require("@requestly/selenium");

const options = new edge.Options().addExtensions(getRequestlyExtension("MicrosoftEdge"));

var driver = new webdriver.Builder()
  .forBrowser('MicrosoftEdge')
  .setEdgeOptions(options)
  .build();

// Imports Rules in Selenium using Requestly sharedList feature

Example Snippets

Almost all websites contain content-security-policy and X-Frame-Options header due to which the browser does not the allow the website to open in iframe.

You can try this sharedlist to open websites in iframe: https://app.requestly.io/rules/#sharedList/1628536158787-Open-Websites-in-iframe

Snippet to open linkedin in iframe in selenium

require("chromedriver");
const { Builder } = require("selenium-webdriver");
const chrome = require("selenium-webdriver/chrome");
const {
  getRequestlyExtension,
  importRequestlySharedList,
} = require("@requestly/selenium");

const options = new chrome.Options().addExtensions(
  getRequestlyExtension("chrome")
);

const driver = new Builder()
  .forBrowser("chrome")
  .setChromeOptions(options)
  .build();

// Imports Rule to load linkedin in iframe
importRequestlySharedList(
  driver,
  "https://app.requestly.io/rules/#sharedList/1628536158787-Open-Websites-in-iframe"
);

// Opens a jsbin which loads linkedin in iframe
driver.get("https://jsbin.com/zotofulofu/2/edit?html,output");

Try opening the above jsbin without the importRequestlySharedList step. Did linkedin load in iframe without that step?

Snippet to throttle network using Selenium for Application Testing

In this example, we'll delay network request for https://www.google.com

This SharedList will be used to delay google.com

Let's start by installing the dependencies and importing them into our project

npm install selenium-webdriver @requestly/selenium
require("chromedriver");
const { Builder } = require("selenium-webdriver");
const chrome = require("selenium-webdriver/chrome");
const {
  getRequestlyExtension,
  importRequestlySharedList,
} = require("@requestly/selenium");

Now that we've all the dependencies into our project, let's create a variable to store our shared list link

const sharedListUrl =
  "https://app.requestly.io/rules/#sharedList/1631611216670-delay";

We now have all the components to write our function.

async function delayGoogle() {
  const options = new chrome.Options().addExtensions(
    getRequestlyExtension("chrome") // This installs requestly chrome extension in your testing instance
  );

  const driver = new Builder()
    .forBrowser("chrome")
    .setChromeOptions(options)
    .build();

  await importRequestlySharedList(driver, sharedListUrl); // Here we import the shared list we created some time back
  driver.get("http://www.google.com/");
}

Now, on running the function, we'll experience a network delay for google.com
