Selenium Proxy Integration with Bright Data

Learn how to setup your Selenium proxy settings and integrate with Bright Data's Proxy IPs

Selenium is an advanced browser automation software used to simulate browsing environments for the most accurate website testing and more, similar to Puppeteer. Take your online operations to the next level by integrating Selenium with the super proxy servers from Bright Data.

Bright Data Super Proxy and Selenium Integration

  • Begin by going to your Bright Data Dashboard and clicking ‘create a Zone’.
  • Choose ‘Network type’ and click save.
  • Within Selenium, fill in the ‘Proxy IP:Port’ in the ‘setProxy’ function for examplezproxy.lum-superproxy.io:22225 of both HTTP and HTTPS.
  • Under ‘sendKeys’ input your Bright Data account ID and proxy Zone name:lum-customer-CUSTOMER-zone-YOURZONE and your Zone password found in the Zone settings.
  • For example:
const {Builder, By, Key, until} = require('selenium-webdriver');
const proxy = require('selenium-webdriver/proxy');

(async function example(){
  let driver = await new Builder().forBrowser('firefox').setProxy(proxy.manual({
    http: 'zproxy.lum-superproxy.io:22225',
    https: 'zproxy.lum-superproxy.io:22225'
  })).build()

  try {
    await driver.get('http://lumtest.com/myip.json');
    driver.switchTo().alert()
      .sendKeys('lum-customer-USERNAME-zone-YOURZONE'+Key.TAB+'PASSWORD');
    driver.switchTo().alert().accept();
  } finally {
      await driver.quit();
  }
})();

Proxy Manager and Selenium Integration

  • Create a Zone with the network, IP type, and number of IPs you wish to use.
  • Install the Bright Data Proxy Manager.
  • Click ‘add new proxy’ and choose the Zone and settings you require, click ‘save’.
  • In Selenium, under the setProxy, input your local IP and proxy manager port (i.e. 127.0.0.1:24000)
    • The local host IP is 127.0.0.1
    • The port created in the Proxy Manager is 24XXX, for example, 24000
  • Leave the username and password fields empty, as the Bright Data Proxy Manager has already been authenticated with the Super Proxy.
  • For example:
const {Builder, By, Key, until} = require('selenium-webdriver');
const proxy = require('selenium-webdriver/proxy');

(async function example(){
    let driver = await new Builder().forBrowser('firefox').setProxy(proxy.manual({
        http: '127.0.0.1:24000',
        https: '127.0.0.1:24000'
    })).build()

    try {
        await driver.get('http://lumtest.com/myip.json');
        driver.switchTo().alert().accept();
    } finally {
        await driver.quit();
    }
})();
