Cypress intercept with GraphQL

Traditional Cypress intercepts use the route url and method to to distinguish requests. Because GraphQL requests go towards the same endpoint, the requests must be aliased within single intercept. For more details on how to do it check the official cypress documentation

It's important to note that if a second intercept is made within a test targeting the same endpoint, it will completely overwrite the old intercept and all requests will have to be re-aliased. In the case of wanting to stub a reply, simply do a 'cy.reply' within the intercept condition:

if (req.operationName === "HelloWorld) {
req.alias = operationName
req.reply(400, { error: 'Something went wrong'})
