Asserting Asynchronous Events

Learn built-in waiting mechanisms for action commands, retries for certain commands, and the ability to override timeouts.

In Cypress, we don’t have to manually wait for asynchronous events because Cypress handles them automatically. The default functionality of Cypress makes it trivial to work with asynchronous scenarios if we know how to avoid a few common pitfalls. Let’s practice some of the most common scenarios with a few examples.

Example application

Let’s look at the following application that showcases some common asynchronous events we encounter in React applications.
