Cypress Cloud provides four distinct Smart Orchestration features for use in CI to speed up test runs, accelerate debugging workflows, and reduce costs:

  • Parallelization: Reduce test duration by running multiple test spec files simultaneously across available CI machines.
  • Load Balancing: Optimize CI resources and minimize test duration by intelligently prioritizing running of test spec files during parallelization.
  • Spec Prioritization: Quickly verify that your latest changes fixed a build by prioritizing the specs that failed in the previous Cypress run.
  • Run Cancellation: Automatically cancel a Cypress run when tests fail. Canceling tests early reduces the number of “tests recorded” and thus your monthly bill as you won't be billed for tests that aren't valuable once your run has failed. This will also free up CI resources for validating fixes, and helping other users.
