Cypress JSON Test Results Report

Save Cypress test results as a JSON file

A Cypress JSON test reporter to create test reports that follow the CTRF standard.

Common Test Report Format ensures the generation of uniform JSON test reports, independent of programming languages or test framework in use.

If you find this project useful, consider giving it a GitHub star

It means a lot to us and helps us grow this open source library.

We need your help

We believe CTRF can save a lot of time for engineers, a single data serialisation report, well structured, community driven and works with any framework. For over 30s years software engineers have used a de facto data serialisation report, you know the one! But we feel it’s time to modernise.

The only way we can grow CTRF is with your help and the support of the software engineering community.

How can you help?

What is CTRF?

CTRF is a universal JSON test report schema that addresses the lack of a standardized format for JSON test reports.

Consistency Across Tools: Different testing tools and frameworks often produce reports in varied formats. CTRF ensures a uniform structure, making it easier to understand and compare reports, regardless of the testing tool used.

Language and Framework Agnostic: It provides a universal reporting schema that works seamlessly with any programming language and testing framework.

Facilitates Better Analysis: With a standardized format, programatically analyzing test outcomes across multiple platforms becomes more straightforward.


npm install --save-dev cypress-ctrf-json-reporter

Add the reporter to your cypress.config.js/ts file:

const { defineConfig } = require('cypress')
const { GenerateCtrfReport } = require('cypress-ctrf-json-reporter')

module.exports = defineConfig({
  e2e: {
    setupNodeEvents(on, config) {
      // Implement node event listeners here
      new GenerateCtrfReport({

Run your tests:

npx cypress run

You'll find a JSON file named ctrf-report.json in the ctrf directory.

Installation for Cypress versions below v10

Add the reporter to your cypress/plugins/index.js/ts

const { GenerateCtrfReport } = require('cypress-ctrf-json-reporter')

/// <reference types="cypress" />

 * @type {Cypress.PluginConfig}
// eslint-disable-next-line no-unused-vars
module.exports = (on, config) => {
  new GenerateCtrfReport({

The reporter supports several configuration options:

new GenerateCtrfReport({
  outputFile: 'custom-name.json', // Optional: Output file name. Defaults to 'ctrf-report.json'.
  outputDir: 'custom-directory', // Optional: Output directory path. Defaults to 'ctrf'.
  minimal: true, // Optional: Generate a minimal report. Defaults to 'false'. Overrides screenshot and testType when set to true
