To record tests and upload replays in other CI providers, youโ€™ll need to complete the following steps in your workflow.

Install dependencies

@replayio/cypress must be installed in your CI environment before the tests execute.
If your workflow has an existing npm ci or yarn command to install project dependencies, then you are all set.
If not, youโ€™ll need to add a step to install all project dependencies, or you can manually install just the Replay package directly with npm i @replayio/cypress .

Installing Replay Browsers

By default, @replayio/cypress also installs the required Replay Browsers. However, if you have a setting to suppress browser installations during npm ci or yarn, youโ€™ll need to also manually install the Replay Browsers in your workflow using:
npx @replayio/cypress install

Update test run command

Your existing test run command (for example, npx cypress run) must be updated to include the name of a Replay Browser and required environment variables to record.
You should make this update wherever your run command is defined, typically in package.json or directly in the workflow file.
Pass the following with your run command to record with Replay:
  • RECORD_ALL_CONTENT=1 if using โ€œReplay Firefoxโ€
  • --browser "Browser Name" (either โ€œReplay Chromiumโ€ or โ€œReplay Firefoxโ€)
For example, to record with โ€œReplay Firefoxโ€, use the following command:
RECORD_ALL_CONTENT=1 RECORD_REPLAY_METADATA_FILE=$(mktemp) npx cypress run --browser "Replay Chromium"
If you donโ€™t specify a browser, the Cypress default Electron will be used.

Upload replays

Use the @replayio/replay CLI in your workflow to add source control metadata and upload replays to your team.
  1. Install the CLI
  1. Add metadata for all replays generated during the test run
  1. Upload replays with your API Key
npm i -g @replayio/replay replay metadata --init --keys source --warn replay upload-all --api-key <api key>
You can also set RECORD_REPLAY_API_KEY as an environment variable instead of passing to the upload-all command. This allows you to store the API Key in your CI provider to keep it secure.
The Replay CLI provides other commands and options, such as filtering which replays are uploaded.
