# How to upload a file in Cypress?

Rest AssuredDynamic ProgrammingProgramming

We can upload a file in Cypress. To perform the file upload task in Cypress, we have to first install a plugin with the command −

npm ins tall –dev cypress-file-upload

Once the installation is done, we have to add the statement import 'cypress-fileupload' in the command.js file which resides inside the support folder within our Cypress project. Also, we shall add the file that we want to upload within the fixtures folder(Picture.png file).

To upload a file, we have to use the Cypress command, attachFile, and pass the path of the file to be uploaded as a parameter to it.

## Example

Implementation

describe('Tutorialspoint Test', function () {

// test case
it('Test Case6', function (){

//file to be uploaded path in project folder
const p = 'Picture.png'

// launch URL

});
