Cypress: Setting Cookies for Localhost

How to set cookies in Cypress for localhost?

Alright, here’s a straightforward way to set cookies using Cypress. With cy.setCookie() , you can directly assign a cookie value before navigating to a specific page on localhost.

Adding to that, if you prefer setting cookies through API calls, you can utilize cy.request() to interact with your application’s API endpoint and set cookies accordingly. It’s handy for scenarios where cookies need to be initialized via backend requests.

Expanding on the options, Cypress provides Cypress.Cookies.defaults() for setting default cookies across all your tests. This approach ensures specific cookies are consistently present throughout your test suite, saving you from explicitly defining them in every test case.
