In this short article, IĀ would like to show how to accept by Google Chrome Browser untrusted certificates and use them with Selenium in Java.

There are 3 solutions:

  • use trusted certificate or use certificate manager to add it to proper store,
  • write a tool that confirms certificate before property testing,
  • useĀ setAcceptInsecureCerts method and ignore theseĀ warnings.

In this article, we useĀ 3rd solution.

The solution is usefulĀ when writtenĀ e2e tests with Selenium useĀ HTTPSĀ protocol andĀ certificate is untrusted (e.g. was generated by yourself, expired, etc.).

Quick solution:

ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();

// add following flag
options.setAcceptInsecureCerts(true);

Ā 

Practical exampleĀ 

package logic.selenium;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeOptions;

public class SeleniumUtil {

    public static WebDriver createWebDriver() {

        System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Projects\\tools\\chromedriver.exe");

        ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();

        options.setBinary("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe");
        options.setHeadless(false);
        options.setAcceptInsecureCerts(true);

        options.addArguments("--window-position=100,30");
        options.addArguments("--window-size=1700,1000");
        // options.addArguments("--start-maximized");
        options.addArguments("--disable-extensions");
        options.addArguments("--disable-gpu");
        options.addArguments("--no-sandbox");

        return new ChromeDriver(options);
    }
}
