Frequently Asked Questions¶
How do I increase logging level of the testing framework?¶
You can put logging entry into your env.local.yaml like this:
logging: level: DEBUG
Can I run tests in interactive mode?¶
Yes, you can. Just call IPython’s method
embed() wherever you need the execution
to enter an interactive mode. Example:
def test_foo(bar): x = do_something() from IPython import embed; embed() assert x
Then you can run your test with -s parameter:
pytest -s cfme/tests/test_foo.py::test_foo.
Once the execution reaches the “breakpoint”, you will be presented with IPython’s
Another way is to use the python debugger - pdb.
Do not forget that you still need to use
-s pytest parameter in order for this to work.
def test_foo(bar): x = do_something() import pdb; pdb.set_trace() assert x
How do I build this documentation?¶
Go to cfme_tests/integration_tests/docs and run
make clean && make html.
Then go to _build/html. You can open and view the HTML files in your browser.
Why was my test case skipped?¶
This is more of a pytest thing, but it is not very obvious.
If you want to see the reason for skipping tests, run pytest with
-rs parameter like this:
$ pytest -rs cfme/tests/infrastructure/test_vm_power_control.py::test_no_template_power_control
If you run it like this, pytest will print info about skip reason. For example:
Skipping due to these blockers: - Bugzilla bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1496383 (or one of its copies)
The same can be done for tests that failed, passed or ended up throwing an error.
For more info, see
pytest --help | grep -A 2 "chars"
I upgraded to Fedora 27 and now I cannot run any tests!¶
Are you seeing this when trying to start tests?
pycurl: libcurl link-time ssl backend (openssl) is different from compile-time ssl backend (nss)
Then the solution for you is to reinstall pycurl. Do the following within your virtualenv.
$ pip uninstall pycurl $ pip install pycurl==7.43.0 --global-option="--with-openssl"
