While testing/automating any software, it is important to generate reports after execution of any tests.So if we will talk about cypress, Cypress supports multiple reporters, the  most readable report is the HTML reporter.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to generate an HTML report using Cypress:

Step 1: Install  Cypress reporter, using Terminal install.

npm i --save-dev cypress-mochawesome-reporter

Step 2: Navigate to the cypress configuration file,i.e.cypress.config.js 


const { defineConfig } = require("cypress");

module.exports = defineConfig({

  reporter: 'cypress-mochawesome-reporter',

  video: false,

  reporterOptions: {

    charts: true,

    reportPageTitle: 'Cypress Inline Reporter',

    embeddedScreenshots: true, 

    inlineAssets: true, //Adds the asserts inline


  e2e: {

    setupNodeEvents(on, config) {



In the above code

  • charts: true –It will Generates Chart in HTML report.
  • reportPageTitle: It will setReport title.
  • embeddedScreenshots: true– By using this,Screenshot will be embedded      within the report.
  • inlineAssets: true– By using this,No separate assets folder will be created.
