Flaky Tests

Guide to Cypress Flaky Tests

What is flaky cypress test?

Flaky cypress test is a test that did not succeed from the first attempt. The build will fail only occasionally: One time it will pass, another time fail, the next time pass again, without any changes to the build having been made. Flaky tests are marked with a special badge on run, spec and individual test level.

How to activate flaky tests detection?

Flaky tests are automatically activated for all cypress tests with retries enabled. When a test has retries enabled and doesn't not pass from the first attempt, it will be marked as flaky.
