Cypress.Server

Improve this doc

Permanently change the default options for all cy.server() instances

Syntax

Cypress.Server.defaults(options)

Arguments

options (Object)

Pass in an options object to change the default behavior of Cypress.Server.

Examples

Options

These options will be the new defaults.

// pass anything here you'd normally pass to cy.server().
Cypress.Server.defaults({
  delay: 500,
  force404: false,
  whitelist: (xhr) => {
    // handle custom logic for whitelisting
  }

Notes

Where to put server configuration

A great place to put this configuration is in your cypress/support/index.js file, since it is loaded before any test files are evaluated.
