In Cypress, it is well-documented that you can alias specific network requests, which you can then "wait" on. This is especially helpful if you want to do something in Cypress after a specific network request has fired and finished.
Example below from Cypress documentation:
cy.route('POST', '**/users').as('postUser') // ALIASING OCCURS HERE
However, since I'm using GraphQL in my app, aliasing no longer becomes a straightforward affair. This is because all GraphQL queries share one endpoint /graphql.
Despite it not being possible to differentiate between different graphQL queries using the url endpoint alone, it is possible to differentiate graphQL queries using operationName (refer to following image).
Having dug through the documentation, there doesn't appear to be a way to alias graphQL endpoints using operationName from the request body. I'm also returning the operationName (yellow arrow) as a custom property in my response header; however, I haven't managed to find a way to use it to alias specific graphQL queries either.
FAILED METHOD 1: This method attempts to use the purple arrow shown in image.
