cypress auth0 login

Hi, I am using Auth0 to log in to my app and the login page is hosted on the Auth0 website which uses callback to redirect to my app after successfully logged in. I want to write e2e tests for the application but not sure how can I achieve this. I have implemented the programmatically login command which is working fine and getting the access_token from the Auth0 for provided credentials. But after successfully getting the token by this command, I am not sure how to set it in local storage/cookies so my application doesn't redirect to the auth0 login screen. Thanks in advance

Hi @Hanif Mianjee. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, you can save the user's authorization credentials (such as a token) to the browser's localStorage or sessionStorage after a user logs in. This allows you to include the credentials in API calls by configuring the dataProvider. Here's an example using axios and the localStorage to add a token acquired from the login method to the Authorization header of API calls:
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios, { AxiosRequestConfig } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth"));
// Check if the header property exists
if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
};
}

return request;
});
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios, { AxiosRequestConfig } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth"));
// Check if the header property exists
if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
};
}

return request;
});
(Source: refine.dev docs (https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-authprovider/create-authprovider)) In your case, after getting the access token from Auth0, you can store it in the local storage using localStorage.setItem("auth", JSON.stringify(token)), where token is the access token you received. This should prevent your application from redirecting to the Auth0 login screen as the token is now available in the local storage. Please note that this is a general approach and might need to be adjusted based on your specific application setup and requirements. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hey @Hanif Mianjee We don't want to mislead you as this is not a situation that concerns refine. You should search the cypress documents.
