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:
npm install --save-dev @bahmutov/cy-api
yarn add -D @bahmutov/cy-api
Add the following line to your Cypress support file
// usually cypress/support/index.js import '@bahmutov/cy-api/support'
This will add a new command
cy.api for making API requests.
If you want to disable messages calls use an environment variable
The definition for
// cypress/integration/my-spec.js /// <reference types="@bahmutov/cy-api" />
With this line, you should have Intelligent Code Completion working in most IDEs and the TypeScript compiler should understand the
- Read Black box API testing with server logs
- Read "Capture all the logs" and @bahmutov/all-logs module.
