Native logger in Selenium WebDriver

0 votes

Is it possible to obtain the log for Selenium WebDriver?

I want to capture a transcript for all the commands that were used. I want a java solution, as I am exporting the tests into JUnit.

I found this code, however, it is not showing anything:

    DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.firefox(); 
    LoggingPreferences logs = new LoggingPreferences(); 
    logs.enable(LogType.DRIVER, Level.FINEST); 
    caps.setCapability(CapabilityType.LOGGING_PREFS, logs); 
    driver = new FirefoxDriver(caps);

Select the log types you want and also the log level, below is the code I used:

LoggingPreferences logs = new LoggingPreferences();
logs.enable(LogType.BROWSER, Level.ALL);
logs.enable(LogType.CLIENT, Level.ALL);
logs.enable(LogType.DRIVER, Level.ALL);
logs.enable(LogType.PERFORMANCE, Level.ALL);
logs.enable(LogType.PROFILER, Level.ALL);
logs.enable(LogType.SERVER, Level.ALL);

DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
desiredCapabilities.setCapability(CapabilityType.LOGGING_PREFS, logs);

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(desiredCapabilities);

After running the test you can collect the logs,as shown:

Logs logs = driver.manage().logs();
LogEntries logEntries = logs.get(LogType.DRIVER);

for (LogEntry logEntry : logEntries) {
