Inspecting devtools console

Hey there.

I'm doing automated tests using Javascript, Selenium and

I'd like to 'inspect' the console logs of the browsers that i use in my tests.

How could i do that?

I tried what i found in the Selenium docs but it did not work:


const cdpConnection = await driver.createCDPConnection('page')
await driver.onLogEvent(cdpConnection, function(event) {
  assert.equal(event['args'][0]['value'], 'here')
await driver.executeScript('console.log("here")')


driver.createCDPConnection('page') <-- generates an exception.

Any pointers appreciated.

    Have you tried just doing a Live Test with the same configuration and opening the devtools from there?

      Thanks for answering.

      I'm afraid that approach will not do it since i need to do everything in a programatic way.
