Hi I have researched the internet and i havn’t found any really good answers to enable me to figure out how i would be able to use the fingerprint via automation.
My goal is:
- Open an application
- If the application has biometrics enabled + the phone supports it set-up biometrics
- use biometrics to log into the app
I have a couple of cases there and i know the they would be split down more than the steps above but that would be my overall goal.
I am using appium with the robot framework. Appium supply one line of code:
with only the follow bit of explanation: “For Android emulator. Authenticate users by using their finger print scans.”
This is not very useful and from what i can understand if i added this to my python library and call it as a keyword it would use whatever fingerprint is stored on the device. I need to be able to create the fingerprint via emulators as well otherwise i will be spending lots of time setting up emulators.
Can anyone out there enlighten me on how to achieve the above or is it simply not possible?
