I am currently running Cypress and I have folders inside of it, where I have tests located for different applications. I have a folder entitled "smhw-qa" which contains sub-folders and tests files for this specific application.
apps will also include other applications too in future.
What I wish to do
In order to avoid having to run every test for a run, I wish to only run this specific folder. The location of the folder is as such:
Over time, there will be more folders and tests added to the
I am familiar with how to run a specific file, so doing the following works:
npx cypress run --spec 'cypress/integration/apps/smhw-qa/banners_promos_global/global_search.js'
How can I specify to Cypress which folder to run specifically when I use the
npx cypress -run command?
What I have tried already
To run a specific test file I tried:
npx cypress run --project 'cypress/integration/apps/smhw-qa'
But this provides an error instead:
Can't run because no spec files were found. We searched for any files inside of this folder: /Users/jaswindersingh/Documents/cypress-automation/automation/cypress/integration/apps/smhw-qa/cypress/integration
Running specific sets of tests by their folders will be much easier for me, and will save time when running a specific suite of tests on our CI platform for example. I will also not need to specify the individual files since this is time-consuming.
It would also mean I can split out my tests and run them on different machines
Do I need to put anything into my test files, or inside of
cypress.json or modify anything else, or can this be achieved through the terminal?
What options must I use instead?
