Cypress on Sauce Labs

Cypress is an end-to-end JavaScript testing framework that you can use to test your web apps either locally in Docker or remotely on Sauce Labs cloud using the saucectl CLI. This gives you the flexibility to run your tests in the environment that best suits your organization, while still benefiting from the Sauce Labs vast collection of devices, browser, and operating system combinations and test result data analytics.

System Requirements

You can run saucectl locally via Docker (Installation Requirements) or remotely via the Sauce Labs cloud, so system requirements vary depending on your intention. The following reference serves as a general guide:

  • OS: 10.14+ (Mojave, Catalina, or Big Sur)
  • Docker: Desktop

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 Cypress demo repo includes an example!
  • 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.


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.

Firefox 101 + Windows

Cypress does currently not work with Firefox 101 on Windows.
