appium-interceptor-plugin

This is an Appium plugin designed to intercept API response and mocking easy. This plugin uses mitmproxy

Prerequisite

  1. Appium version 2.0
  2. Intercepting API requests from android requires CA certificate to be installed on the device. Follow the instructions in How to install CA certificate on android section and install the CA certificate.

Installation - Server

Install the plugin using Appium's plugin CLI, either as a named plugin or via NPM:

appium plugin install --source=npm appium-interceptor

Activation

The plugin will not be active unless turned on when invoking the Appium server:

appium server -ka 800 --use-plugins=appium-interceptor -pa /wd/hub

what does this plugin do?

For every appium session, interceptor plugin will start a proxy server and updates the device proxy settings to pass all network traffic to proxy server. Mocking is disabled by default and can be enabled from the test by passing appium:intercept : true in the desired capability while creating a new appium session.

Please refer to the commands sections for detailed usage.

adb shell settings put global http_proxy :0
