Calliope Pro, an alternative to Cypress Dashboard

Cypress is a very useful and enjoyable test automation solution with a great built-in report dashboard used by many teams or individuals. It’s simple, fast and easy to implement. But, it is only useful if you are using Cypress and not other tools or frameworks, which is unrealistic.

If you’re looking for an extensive reporting dashboard that supports Cypress reports as well as many other solutions, Calliope Pro is here for you.

Cypress Dashboard


The Cypress framework has a great platform called Cypress Dashboard where you can inspect your recorded test results, view ongoing tests in the pipelines, and most importantly, have a look at the report data (called Analytics) to assess past results and effectively plan for the future. 

Gaining insights into your test results and monitoring the improvements or degradations of those tests help to create a more holistic picture of what you are testing. For example, if yesterday’s test indicated an issue in one area that you fixed with the latest refactoring, but today’s test indicated a new issue elsewhere, you can very clearly assume that they are related.

Cypress makes the integration process slightly easier than other testing frameworks via utilisation of projectId in the configuration file and record key in CLI.

Cypress Limitations


The Cypress Dashboard is great for working with Cypress test reports, but most QA teams don’t or can’t use just one framework. Most large companies are using numerous different frameworks or tools from Cypress to Serenity, from Burp to XCUITest to cover every aspect of their product.

Listed frameworks/tools cannot be constrained to only UI testing or API testing. When companies are building large and scalable products, performance and security testing also comes into play. When all the frameworks and tools are brought together to test a fully functioning software product, the situation can become very complex. What can you do to bring clarity to the chaos?
