            Cypress Login with CSRF token
            Asked 2021-Oct-20 at 19:43

            I would really like to expand on this topic "Logging in with CSRF token" as I have been banging my head against a wall for weeks now and I can't be the only one with this problem. All topics about logging in via POST or logging in with CSRF inevitably lead back to the above link.

            Yet the recipes described in this link do not seem to work for me. They all assume that the CSRF token is created once you visit the Login page. But on our site, the CSRF token is only created once you login.

            I tested with Postman and there is no CSRF token in the HTML or in the header before you are logged in.

            I also tested it in Cypress with the following code:



            Answered 2021-Oct-20 at 19:43

            I think strategies #1 & #2 rely on the browser remembering credentials and supplying them to the login page, as happens with the Stackoverflow page - you don't have to log in every time you visit.

            The main difference is you have used cy.visit() instead of cy.request() as shown in the recipes.

            If you still are not able to successfully grab the token, try using your login with cy.session(). It will only call the login function once per session.



            How can I test automatically Service Workers in offline mode? Trying with Cypress
            Asked 2021-Sep-12 at 14:57

            I developed some service workers but when the complex of the service workers (SW) is getting higher I want to create a tests battery to check it out regularly.

            I decided to use Cypress in first instance. But I struggle with some problems that dont let me handle the situation.

            1. Offline mode. Cypress has no native use case but has a recipe for Chrome (it doesnt matter if it works only in a unique browser)
            2. When offline mode recipe is active the fetch doesn't work properly on the test.

            The same web works on the browser but not in the cypress test.

            After a while I did a deeper search in the cypress issues.

            I found a comment talking about a problem in some situations when NOT using localhost as server name (I was using custom TLD with Valet for Linux, so it was very related to my problem). I hope that if you are in my situation you don't need to dive in along the same process.

            So I check with the new configuration and MAGICALLY all works!.

            All i did is Boot up a server using localhost and then run the tests(automatically or with cypress UI)



            How can I pass an env name to Cypress tests to load a set of env variables?
            Asked 2021-Aug-30 at 18:07

            How can I pass an env name to Cypress tests to load a set of env variables? The Cypress page remains cryptic and does not answer this question:

            Also, their example does it in a way that would force me to write shell scripts to handle switching variables: . There is no way hard-coding the env name is going to work for me:

            So, I created a file called cypress.playground.json but I don't know how to tell Cypress to load it up.



            Answered 2021-Aug-28 at 04:00

            This is the variant I came up with.

            This difference is you can combine cypress.json with your specified file e.g cypress.playground.json




            How to accept a window confirm fired by an iframe with Cypress
            Asked 2021-Aug-13 at 09:24

            I'm having some problems with Cypress when I need to accept a window confirm popup that is fired from a iframe. Cypress it's not very friendly with iframes, but I managed to make it work until I've found that need.

            So here's what I've tried (based on this):

            Cypress - Moving login functions from before / beforeEach hooks to a separate file
            Asked 2021-Jul-12 at 03:46

            I recently started writing tests with Cypress and I use a slightly modified version of the code available in one of the official documentation's recipes:



            Answered 2021-Jul-11 at 02:36

            Warning: "A function whose declared type is neither 'void' nor 'any' must return a value."

            This means you don't have a return value from function fetchUser(). The return token only alters the subject of the Cypress command chain, but you need to return the cy.request() itself to give the function a return value.

            The value returned will be Chainable, similar to Promise - it's value can accessed with .then(value => (but you can't await it).

            Also, the request is asynchronous so you can't set the passed-in token variable, you must return something that's "then-able", i.e it signals when the asynchronous call is complete.




            Trigger hover on a button on the website
            Asked 2021-Apr-03 at 23:14

            I want to write end-to-end tests on From the menu, I want to do "File -> Import -> Simple AF" The second menu item "Import" should work with hover. After hover, a sub-menu should be open, and then you can click on "Simple AF".

            below are my simple javascript codes.

            I tried everything on NONE WORKED!



            Answered 2021-Apr-03 at 00:17

            Hovering is a problem, but there is an add-on library cypress-real-events that works well



   Identity Server
            Asked 2020-Jun-04 at 20:23

            We have a React application protected by a separate Identity Server site. When unauthenticated, the user is redirected to the login page within Identity Server and then on successful login they are then redirected to a callback URL within the React application.

            I'm trying to automate this process as much as possible to improve the speed and reliability of our tests so that we don't need to login via the UI each time - allowing the tests to be atomic and free of unnecessary complexity.

            What would be the best way to achieve this?

            I've followed the examples the Cypress team give around logging in, but haven't been able to get it close to optimal:

            The closest I've come so far is by following this Auth0 article, but fell short of populating the id_token, nonce and state values to pass to the callback URL:

            Any direction greatly appreciated.



            Answered 2020-Jun-04 at 20:23

            I was able to get around this by hitting the /connect/token endpoint of the Identity Server:
