Playwright Proxy Integration With Oxylabs

The following guide covers the Playwright integration process with Oxylabs Datacenter, Mobile, and Residential Proxies.

Playwright Proxy Integration With Oxylabs

What is Playwright?

Playwright is a convenient library for automation and testing purposes. It can work with web browser interactions, e.g., navigating to URLs, entering text, clicking buttons, extracting text, and more. 

Playwright works with the most popular browsers, such as Google Chrome and Chromium, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Safari (when using WebKit.) Moreover, it supports various programming languages such as Node.js, Python, Java, and .NET.

Step-by-step guide on how to use proxies with Playwright

Before getting started with Playwright, you'll need to install a few basic tools: Node.js and a code editor of your choice. After that, create a Node.js project and install the required packages. You may find a detailed guide on how to install and run Playwright on our blog post

Once everything is set up, we can move on to the next part – Oxylabs' Proxies integration with Playwright.

Residential and Mobile Proxies

If you’re using our Residential or Mobile Proxies , follow these steps:

1. Fill in the Proxy IP:Port in the server value, for example:

2. Next, input your Oxylabs proxy sub-user's username and password. The code example of a Playwright proxy server authentication looks like this:

const playwright = require('playwright');
(async () => {
    for (const browserType of ['chromium', 'firefox', 'webkit']) {
        const browser = await playwright[browserType].launch({
            headless: false,
            proxy: {
                server: '',
                username: 'USERNAME',
                password: 'PASSWORD'
        const context = await browser.newContext();
        const page = await context.newPage();
        await page.goto('');
        await page.screenshot({ path: `${browserType}.png` });
        await browser.close();

3. You can also use country-specific entries. For example, if you put under Host and 10001 under Port, you'll receive a US exit node. Please check our documentation for a complete list of country-specific entry nodes and sticky sessions details.

Shared Datacenter Proxies 

If you’re using Shared Datacenter Proxies, fill in the Proxy IP:Port in the server value as shown: 

2. Enter your Oxylabs proxy sub-user's username and password in dedicated values. 

3. If you want to use a country-specific node, you’ll simply have to adjust the server value. Please check Shared Datacenter Proxies documentation; here, you’ll find the list of available countries.

Enterprise Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

If you’re using Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, insert your unique IP address in the host field and enter 60000 in the port field. 

You’ll have to choose an IP address from the acquired list. Please refer to our documentation for more details.

Self-Service Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

For Self-Service Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, use the following Proxy IP:Port sequence:

The port indicates the sequential number of an IP address from the acquired list. Check our documentation for more details.

ISP Proxies


Port: 8001

And that's it! You've successfully integrated Oxylabs' proxies with Playwright.


In combination with Oxylabs' proxies, Playwright could be a great tool when it comes to browser automation and web scraping. Of course, we offer our own Web Scraper API to collect public data even more easily if you search for maintenance-free scraping infrastructure.
