API automation using the cypress API plugin “cypress-plugin-api”

Problem Statement
At present in Cypress, we don’t have a way to see API calls in the Cypress App UI itself. Using this plugin you are not only automate the APIs but also examine your APIs,Data visually.

The biggest benefit is the same as with tools like the postman. you get visual feedback and you get to examine your APIs, explore the data, a simple table for viewing cookies, and color coding of methods in UI view and in the timeline.

Please find more detail with demo under the Below link
