So horribly newb question. If I make a task 'db:reset': (user, table) => {} is that the correct way to declare two args?
Say i'm calling cy.task('db:reset'. {user: 'Jim', table: 'Users'})

or is it like 'db:reset': (user) => {} and then u call user.user user.table

Hi guys, how are you? In Gitlab I'm running into the problem I cannot adjust/change the setting shm_size, which causes Cypress tests against Chrome hang forever... I think this is a recurring problem. What are you using to overcome this scenario in Gitlab?

Does anyone know how to support import aliases in plugin files? We have WebPack aliases in our Next.js project (eg ~/server) and I'd like to import this code into a plugin file. I know I can use WebPack preprocessor for test files, but how do I tell Cypress to respect my aliases in plugin files themselves? Don't see anything on docs or Google about this. Use case is to have a "reset db" plugin that calls our server code to seed the DB using our models directly. Is this possible or should I try something else?
Dana Woodman
@danawoodman
For now I'll use exec but it seems like a plugin is the "correct" way to do this?

Hi guys, when I run cypress , there was so many pages depend on top object, but in the container of cypress, top target to "http://localhost:8080/__/#/tests/__all"? anyway or workaround that I can redirect the top keyword to my website?

@mankinchi
would you recommend using Cypress to test API?
symphony
@symphony2014
Why not use unit test or postman ? @mankinchi I guess Cypress more suitable for E2E test.

Hello, out of curiosity, what is the reason for https://docs.cypress.io/api/commands/fixture.html#this-context ? The requirement to use function callbacks here?

hello there :)
in our company i have weird issues with cypress. sometimes it flaky and i get "DOM detached" on our vue application.
is there any way to slowdown the requests on a cypress test to better see what happens? or any idea how to detect what exactly is triggering this?
and does anybody have a good idea how to wait for hydration of a vue app?

Hello. I'm using WSL and want to test project inside WSL, but I don't want to setup X server, since result is ugly and buggy. So, I'm using pnpx cypress open to run Cypress, pointing it to WSL directory and getting EISDIR when file watcher is trying to watch /:

Error: EISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, watch '/'

Any ideas how to proceed from here or debug this?

Unable to close PopUp Alert or unable to click ok button in any alert popup in cypress

iframepage.switch('#_bmain').xpath("user name").type('')
after login this, a popup alert message with OK button is coming which is not closing automatically and i am unable to close it with any manual code.. (we can't inspect the coming popup)

Example , i used below codes:

cy.get('button').contains('OK').click()
if (arguments && arguments[0] === 'onbeforeunload') {
return;
}
return original.apply(this, arguments);
};
})

Hi! Is there any spec-level timeout in cypress? Something like if test is running longer than 'n' mins then stop it and fail?

Hey there, I'm probably just dum but I've been trying to out how to do something for a little while with no luck. Basically I have a platform I'm working in where we have 3 apps that share a "reset password" page. I'm trying to write tests for that reset password page using cypress, and one of the things I'm trying to test is that when the reset is complete, the user is automatically navigated back to the correct app. I'm getting some errors when I try to do that regarding "Blocked a frame with origin "http://localhost:8081" from accessing a cross-origin frame." Is there somewhere I need to add some config in cypress to allow my other pages to load? Thanks.

Is there any option to log error messages nicely? I was using throw new Error, but it is not the case anymore. Is there any command available like: cy.error() or cy.log('', {error:true})?

Hi there,
I have impltemented the OKTA but somehow its keep giving me OKTA login screen even though I see it working 200 response.

1. Same OKTA login code works in electron
2. Same code doesnt work in chrome.

I did some research and figured the "samesite " cookie related issue. I added a code
cy.set('sameSite', value). //i tried all values.
But still getting the error.

Does any one face this issue?

it('test Login to atmos via OKTA', () => {

console.log('inside the before', " user name -");

//first cy.request you need to get a OKTA session token
cy.request(optionsSessionToken)
.then(resp => {
const sessionToken = resp.body.sessionToken;

cy.request({
method: 'GET',
url: 'atmosURL&sessionToken=' + sessionToken,
form: true,
followRedirect: false
}).then(respWithToken => {
const url = respWithToken.redirectedToUrl;

const token = url
.substring(url.indexOf('access_token'))
.split('=')[1]
.split('&')[0];
cy.wrap(token).as('token')

cy.visit(url).then(() => {
cy.visit('/')

});
});
});
})

hi all. is there any workaround how to test playback e.g. user click on play button and playback of song started. On my side I have problem only with logged in user, since anonymous can start playback and it really plays, but only samples. For logged in user I get errors and it is only when I use cypress, no issue with webdriver based frameworks.
error is blob:https://some-domain/d66d05e1-17d1-4c6c-9435-4cd8f2efbbd0 net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
also xhr eror: GET (aborted) /hlsaes/assets/mp4-320kbps/01/30/02/456A0F707C122835E050040A601051E1.mp4/seg-1-a1.ts?blah-blah-blah
All I need is just click play button and verify that playback time changed in player. Song itself is playable and can be played with same user logged in manually.
Kniaziev Oleksandr
@Kniaziev
Then('The user is able to start playback from search results',()=>{
cy.get('.search-results__bestresult').within((\$topresult) => {
cy.get('[data-qa="image"]').trigger('mouseover').then((loc) => {
cy.get('.play-button').click()
})})})

anyone have any experience with interacting with ng-select dropdowns in cypress?
my dev team is telling me that in CLI mode, a lot of errors are stemming from ng-select components and visibility / actionability that manifests in CLI mode but not GUI mode
obviously that's very adversely affecting our CI efforts
Victor Aprea
@vicatcu
We get this sort of thing a lot in the CLI
Timed out retrying: expected '<span.ng-value-label>' to be 'visible' This element <span.ng-value-label> is not visible because it has CSS property: position: fixed and it's being covered by another element: <div class="ng-input">...</div>
