Recorded runs capture the results from your test runs.

If you haven’t set up your project to record read here.

Run details

Details of each run are displayed including:

  • The number of skipped, pending, passing, and failing tests.
  • The GitHub branch, pull request, author, commit sha and commit message associated with the run (if any)
  • The times the run, each spec file, and test started and ended.
  • What Continuous Integration the run ran in (if any) and its CI id and url.
  • The operating system and version
  • The browser and version
  • The Cypress version

Spec files

You can see the result of each spec file that ran within Specs. There is also the option to switch between Timeline View and Bar Chart View.

Timeline View

The Timeline View charts your spec files as they ran relative to each other. This is especially helpful when you want to visualize how your tests ran in parallel.

Bar Chart View

The Bar Chart View charts the lengths of each spec file. This view is helpful to determine which spec files or tests are running longer than others.
