We’re trying to setup a dev workflow with CircleCI + Cypress, and we were wondering if it would be possible to run the tests on an external environment (a staging copy of our production website) instead of setting up Docker + a dummy database. Our current database is +2Gb, and our Cypress tests need to run on an up to date environment in order to work, since we have data that expires. Updating this database every time we run a build / test on CircleCI would be painful. For context, our staging environment is on CloudWays on a AWS instance, and can pull code from our Bitbucket repo.
Any tips on how we can make this work would be great!
