How to Speed Up Cypress Tests
Run Cypress Tests in Parallel With Jenkins Pipeline
You may want to run Cypress concurrent tests, but for that, we will use declarative Jenkins Pipeline with defined Jenkins stages. This allows us to run Cypress parallel tests.
Let’s look at this Jenkins Pipeline as a code to understand Cypress Jenkins integration:
How Dynamic Tests Split Works in Knapsack Pro Queue Mode
To better understand how the test suite split works when you allocate tests in a dynamic way across parallel stages, please see the below video. You will find here more edge cases that can be solved when running tests in parallel and how Knapsack Pro Queue Mode helps with CI parallelization. Ensuring each of your parallel tasks run a similar amount of time is important to get optimal CI build time, which saves you as much time as possible.
