Is there a way to automate multiple tabs using cypress?



  • Is there a way to automate multiple tabs using cypress? e.g. After login to my webpage, I get redirected to another tab. So, I would like to automate login in 1st tab and then perform other testing activities in another tab(after login redirect) using cypress testing tool.



  • From the Cypress site:

    Because Cypress runs in the browser, it will never have multi-tabs support. We do have access to the browser automation APIs to actually switch tabs, but there is no reason for us to ever expose them.

    Most of the time this use case is needed when users click an that opens a new tab. Users then want to switch to that tab to verify that the content loaded. But, you shouldn’t need to do this. In fact we have recipes of showing you how to test this without multiple tabs.

    The mentioned recipe is here.
