Quickstart with ScenariooJS

The aim of this page is to describe the minimal viable setup of Scenarioo from scratch using protractor and the scenarioo-js writer library.

For more detailed informations about Scenarioo-JS and its usage please refer to the documentation of ScenariooJS here: ScenariooJS Documentation


Install the latest npm LTS version

Install the latest Google Chrome version

Minimal Protractor Test

Create an empty folder for the project.

Open the folder in a console.

Create an initial package.json file:

npm init -y

Install protractor:

npm install -D protractor

Create folder tests with file wikipediaTest.js. Add content:

describe("Wikipedia", function() {

    it("Look up Protractor", function() {
        element(by.css('#search-form button')).click();


Add file protractor.conf.js in project folder, add content (waitForAngularEnabled() is required because the page we are going to test is not an Angular page):

exports.config = {
    specs: [ "tests/*.js"],
    onPrepare: function() {

Add script to package.json:

  "scripts": {
    "pretest": "webdriver-manager update",
    "test": "protractor protractor.conf.js"

Run the test:

npm test

Minimal Scenarioo Integration

Add the scenarioo-js writer library:

npm install -D scenarioo-js

Extend protractor.conf.js as follows.

a) Add at the beginning of the file:

var scenarioo = require("./node_modules/scenarioo-js");

b) Add in onPrepare function:

scenarioo.setupJasmineReporter(jasmine, {
    targetDirectory: 'scenarioo-output',
    branchName: 'master',
    branchDescription: '',
    buildName: 'build_' + new Date().getTime(),
    revision: ''

Change the test wikipediaTest.js by adding a require statement for Scenarioo and scenarioo.step() calls after each action:

var scenarioo = require("../node_modules/scenarioo-js");

describe("Wikipedia", function() {

    it("Look up Protractor", function() {
        scenarioo.step("Start page");

        scenarioo.step("Entered search term");

        element(by.css('#search-form button')).click();
        scenarioo.step("Article about Protractor");



Run the test again (as we have integrated Scenarioo now):

npm test

Disclaimer: we are using the legacy (plain Jasmine) syntax for this example to keep it as simple as possible. We recommend using the Scenarioo Fluent DSL instead, as it has many advantages.

Install Viewer to Browse Output

  • Download Tomcat 9

  • Unzip Tomcat

  • Add line to context.xml of Tomcat pointing to the subfolder scenarioo-output of your project:

<Parameter name="scenariooDataDirectory" value="D:\Code\scenarioo-demo\scenarioo-output" override="true" />
  • Download the latest Scenarioo development build. (This is currently required because the released version does not have the simple configuration option we use here yet).

  • Move Scenarioo *.war file into webapps folder of Tomcat and rename it to scenarioo.war.

  • Start up Tomcat using the startup script (startup.bat or startup.sh depending on your platform).

  • Access Scenarioo viewer under: http://localhost:8080/scenarioo

  • If you can't access this page, make sure no other application is using port 8080.

  • Click the use case "Wikipedia" and then the scenario "Look up Protractor". You should see this screen:
