Your Configuration file will looks like below and save it in json xml format

In the node config file you’ve to mentin the browserName, version and platform details and based on these parameters the grid will re-direct tests to the proper device. You’ve to configure host details and the selenium grid details. For a full list of all parameters and descriptions below chec below file,Once you starts the Appium server and it’ll register with the grid, you will see your device on the grid console page:



{

  "capabilities":
      [
        {

          “browserName”: “<e.g._device Name”,
          “version”:”<version_of_Android/IOS_e.g._6.0>”,
          “maxInstances”: 1,
          “platform”:”<platform_e.g.ANDROID>”
        }

      ],

  “configuration”:

  {

    “cleanUpCycle”:3000,
    “timeout”:30000,
    “proxy”: “org.openqa.grid.selenium.proxy.DefaultRemoteProxy”,
    “url”:”http://<host name appium server or ip-address appium server>:<appium_port>/wd/hub”,
    “host”: <host_name_appium_server_or_ip address appium server>,
    “port”: <appium_port>,
    “maxSession”: 1,
    “register”: true,
    “registerCycle”: 5000,
    “hubPort”: <grid_port>,
    “hubHost”: “<Grid hostname(or) grid ipaddress>”
  }

}

 

1.Create Nodes in required Machines
2.Need to Start new Nodes for each device as you’ve configured in different machines. 3.Register those nodes with Selenium Grid Server.
4.Now Start the Server using java -jar selenium-server-standalone-2.43.0.jar -role hub
5.You can register the nodes with this command  – appium -p -U –nodecofig
