Using Instructions

Update Composer.json file in your project, and download

Download

composer require joomla-projects/joomla-browser:dev-develop

Loading the Module in Codeception

Finally make the following changes in Acceptance.suite.yml to add JoomlaBrowser as a Module.

Your original acceptance.suite.ymlprobably looks like:

modules:
    enabled:
        - WebDriver
        - AcceptanceHelper
    config:
        WebDriver:
            url: 'http://localhost/joomla-cms3/'     # the url that points to the joomla cms
            browser: 'firefox'
            window_size: 1024x768
            capabilities:
              unexpectedAlertBehaviour: 'accept'
        AcceptanceHelper:
            ...

You should remove the WebDriver module and replace it with the JoomlaBrowser module:

    config:
        JoomlaBrowser:
            url: 'http://localhost/joomla-cms/'     # the url that points to the joomla installation at /tests/system/joomla-cms
            browser: 'firefox'
            window_size: 1024x768
            capabilities:
              unexpectedAlertBehaviour: 'accept'
            username: 'admin'
            password: 'admin'
            database host: 'localhost'             # place where the Application is Hosted #server Address
            database user: 'root'                  # MySQL Server user ID, usually root
            database password: '1234'                  # MySQL Server password, usually empty or root
            database name: 'dbname'            # DB Name, at the Server
            database type: 'mysqli'                # type in lowercase one of the options: MySQL\MySQLi\PDO
            database prefix: 'jos_'                # DB Prefix for tables
            install sample data: 'Yes'              # Do you want to Download the Sample Data Along with Joomla Installation, then keep it Yes
            sample data: 'Default English (GB) Sample Data'    # Default Sample Data
