Cypress Dashboard Configuration and Execute the Test cases


Cypress Dashboard Configuration and Execute the Test cases

What is Cypress Dashboard?

Cypress Dashboard is a web-based component that provides various features related to projects and test runs in Cypress.

Cypress Dashboard increases test velocity while giving total visibility into tests running in your CI pipeline. Additionally, it provides the visual representation of the test runs, their reports, and status on a single web window

Why Cypress Dashboard?

Cypress dashboard is helpful

  1. Test Stats We can view the number and details of all failed, passed, pending, and skipped tests.
  2. Stack Trace We can view the complete stack trace of the failed test cases.
  3. View Screenshots We can view all the screenshots taken for the test cases during the test run.
  4. View video We can watch a complete video of the test run. Additionally, you can also watch just a clip out of the entire test run.
  5. Parallel Tests We can run multiple tests in parallel while running them on CI.
  6. Grouping Tests We can group tests based on specific parameters and run them in one test run.

Project Set-up

Create two spec files login_page.spec.js,viewport.spec.js

login_page.spec.js/// <reference types=”cypress” />

describe(“Test login funcationlity : login into the application and logout “, () => {
it(“Open URL”, () => {
it(“Login Into Application”, () => {
it(“Logout From Application”, () => {

viewport.spec.js/// <reference types=”cypress” />

context(‘Viewport’, () => {
beforeEach(() => {

it(‘cy.viewport() – set the viewport size and dimension’, () => {

cy.viewport(320, 480)
