Cypress Test History Snipper overview

Test History helps you to review historical performance of individual test across different runs and branches.
Cypress test history - flaky, passed and failed instances
Each individual dot is an instance of the test. The dots are arranged in chronological order.
Hovering over a dot will show individual run details. Clicking on a dot will open the recorded test instance and reveal its details.
The dots are coloured as follows:
  • red - failed
  • blue - passed
  • purple - passed but flaky
  • grey - test was ignored
  • orange - test was skipped due to a failure

What instances represent the same test across different runs?

Instances with the same spec file, project and title will be considered as belonging to the same test - i.e. renaming a test or renaming a spec file will "detach" it from its history.
