How to upload a file in Cypress?

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.



describe('Tutorialspoint Test', function () {

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

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

      // launch URL

      //upload file with attachFile

      //click on upload

      //verify uploaded file

Execution Results

The execution logs show that the file Picture.png got uploaded and the file name got reflected on the page.
