How to Get Started

  • Quickstart: Use our demo repo to quickly set up and run a sample Cypress project and test to see the results.
  • Run your own tests: Customize saucectl to run your existing tests just by modifying the config.yml file for your project.
  • Try Cypress with Cucumber: saucectl supports Cypress using Cucumber, and the demo repo includes examples for Cypress 10 and above.
  • Incorporate saucectl in your pipeline: Cypress on Sauce supports CI integrations with Circle CI, GitLab, Jenkins, and GitHub Actions.

Cypress Plugin for Sauce Labs

If you would prefer to stay in Cypress, try the new Cypress Sauce Labs Plugin. Connect to your Sauce Labs account from within your Cypress project to configure and run your tests directly from Cypress.

Limitations

Special Characters in Test Names

We recommend that you avoid the use of special characters when naming your tests. If your test name contains any special characters, your test may not run or its artifacts may not be visible in our platform.

Cypress 11+

A bug impacting Cypress 11+ is causing the Cypress UI to display a browser that is not the one actually used. Edge is shown on Windows, and Webkit is shown on macOS.

The browser selected in your configuration file is used, and the console log of Cypress is still correct.

The issue has been reported to Cypress. See: https://github.com/cypress-io/cypress/issues/25755 for more information.

Firefox 101 on Windows

Cypress does not currently work with Firefox 101 on Windows.

Firefox 105

Cypress does not currently work with Firefox 105. See https://github.com/cypress-io/cypress/issues/23897 for more information.

Microsoft Edge 120+ on Windows

Cypress does not currently work with Microsoft Edge 120+ on Windows.

  • Cypress only supports launching Webkit with a fixed resolution of 1280x720.
  • Cypress 12.6.0 does not work on Windows with Webkit browser.
  • Cypress 12+ does not work on macOS 11 with Webkit browser.
