@bahmutov/cy-api

renovate-app badge CircleCI cypress version

Cypress custom command "cy.api" for end-to-end API testing

This command makes HTTP requests to external servers, then renders the input and output where the web application usually is in the Cypress Test Runner. If there are server-side logs using @bahmutov/all-logs, this command fetches them and renders too. Here is typical output:

cy.api in action

Install

npm install --save-dev @bahmutov/cy-api

or

yarn add -D @bahmutov/cy-api

Add the following line to your Cypress support file

// usually cypress/support/index.js
import '@bahmutov/cy-api'

This will add a new command cy.api for making API requests.

Configuration

var env default value description
CYPRESS_API_MESSAGES true Show and make call to api server logs
CYPRESS_API_SHOW_CREDENTIALS false Show authentication password

By default cy.api print response in the browser. To have the same behaviour as cy.request and use cy.visit normally, you need to desactivate apiDisplayRequest :

it('my test without displaying request', { apiDisplayRequest: false }, () => {
    cy.api(
      {
        url: '/',
      }
    )
})

TypeScript

If your using TypeScript with Cypress, you can add type in your tsconfig.json

{
    "compilerOptions": {
        "types": [
            "cypress",
            "@bahmutov/cy-api"
        ]
    }
}
