login with out the UI

Hi, I am trying to test an app with cypress and wondered if I could log in without the UI. The app has not been set up for rest. Just an ordinary app. Looking at local storage cookies, there is an XASESSIONID cookie. Currently I am trying     cy.request('POST', '/p/login', {       name: 'fred',       password: 'passwd',     }) I have set my login page to have a url of /login. And the name and password come from the system.user class which is inherited by the account class. And my person class is associated with account. But I think the code above assumes there is a login API waiting at /p/login which I guess there is not because it is a page. If I go via the UI in cypress, all works. So is what I am trying to do with cypress possible with a mendix app? I am not sure if fixtures are appropriate in this situation – basically setting the json I expect to get back and allow cypress to intercept the network return and replace it with my json. On other projects I have used cypress on, the login API has return user data and a token for subsequent API calls. So other than the XSESSIONID cookie, is Mendix returning anything? Sorry if this is a bit vague and disjointed, probably reflects my current confused thinking (!).

I’m not familiar with Cypress, but if it executes JavaScript, could you use the login function in the mx client library?
