How to generate the COOKIEHASH from JavaScript

How do I get the contents of the PHP-variable: COOKIEHASH inside a Cypress-test.

I’m writing some Cypress-test for WordPress, and in order to set the cookies to log in a user in WordPress using Cypress, then I need the contents of the COOKIEHASH-variable.

For those not familiar with the COOKIEHASH, go to a WordPress-installation and put in this code anywhere:

And then you’ll see it. It looks something like this: a8b94154380982c3284a467b8aa224c6.

When I run my Cypress-tests for the first time, then I don’t know what that hash is, so I don’t know which cookies to set.

So currently I log in manually, go to cookies in my browser and get the hash. Which is quite the manual operation for automated tests. 🙂

If I hash, then the js-md5-hash gives me: 8aa4b9bbc2a9e946b670fd8372a3081a
and I can see in my cookies that the hash is: b7d8d5a26884619e3b3b4481ba778642
