cy2 - Deprecated

Cypress introduced a breaking change in version 12. Please usecypress-cloud integration package.
cy2 is deprecated.
cy2 is an NPM package that Integrates Cypress with alternative cloud services like Sorry Cypress or Currents by setting the environment variable CYPRESS_API_URL.
The command passes down to cypress all the CLI flags, so you can just use it instead of cypress
$ npm install -g cy2
$ export CYPRESS_API_URL=""
$ cy2 run --record --key XXX --parallel --ci-build-id `date +%s`
  • Running the command above will invoke your default cypress version with the flags you've provided. It will also modify the internal cypress configuration to use a different API URL.
  • If no URL is provided, it will use the default cypress package configuration
  • On Windows set CYPRESS_API_URL in the CMD shell with set CYPRESS_API_URL= (Don't use quotes (") because the Windows CMD takes them literally unlike the Linux shells)
MacOS Ventura users:
Running `cy2` in an interactive shell can fail with EPERM: operation not permitted unless you need to explicitly allow the shell app to modify other applications.
Add the shell app of your choice to the allowed list.
