LambdaTest launches Underpass – A Desktop Application For Testing Local Pages

Hey All! Hope you are staying safe amid COVID-19 outbreak and staying indoors, working remotely! In the mid of all these, we introduced Underpass- A Desktop application to make you local testing easier. All you need to do is to install this application in your system and start your local testing.

Why Underpasss?

Underpass saves you the effort of working your way through the command line to trigger the Lambda Tunnel binary. Now, you just need to download, install the application and hit the launch button with your LambdaTest authentication credentials. That is it! The Underpass will take care of the rest.

You can also use Magic Link to auto-fill the authentication credentials. Just click on the Magic Link under the "Configure Tunnel" button in the header and it will automatically open the auto-fill Underpass.

The Underpass application has a built-in terminal to reflect the Lambda Tunnel logs directly from your command line.

Best Part? Underpass lets you specify a bunch of advanced configurations while launching your Lambda Tunnel.

That way, you can launch the Lambda Tunnel on your specified proxy details, environment label, info API port, local server port, and more.! You can even view the detailed logs by toggling the Verbose button, by default, it would be off.

The MITM(Man-in-the-middle) toggle enables you to test websites using self-signed certificates on your local system or internal network.

For more details, refer to our support documentation on LambdaTest Underpass.
