Foreword

This page describes how Tempest project for Manila project testing can be used.

It is assumed that user who reads this is acquainted with, at least, common information about Tempest:

http://docs.openstack.org/developer/tempest/
https://github.com/openstack/tempest

Since Liberty release Manila is using tempest plugins which are documented here:

http://docs.openstack.org/developer/tempest/plugin.html

Also, it is assumed, that the following projects has been installed in test environmentː

- cinder
- glance
- keystone
- manila
- neutron
- nova

Where do Tempest tests for Manila live?

Manila stores its tests for Tempest in its repo here:

https://github.com/openstack/manila/tree/master/manila_tempest_tests

Since Manila is using the Tempest plugin mechanism all test are automatically registered by running setup.py. In case devstack is used it is fully sufficient to just enable the Manila devstack plugin.

You can list all Manila tests by browsing to the Tempest source directory and execute the following command:

 testr list-tests | grep manila_tempest_tests

To see if the plugin is registered correclty you can run:

 echo 'import pkg_resources; print list(pkg_resources.iter_entry_points("tempest.test_plugins"))' | python

Configuring Tempest before running tests

Any test running with Tempest requires update of Tempest's config file located in

etc/tempest.conf

If the tempest plugin is installed you can use the following command to generate all config options:

oslo-config-generator --config-file tools/config/config-generator.tempest.conf

Just copy template "tempest.conf.sample" and configure the needed options:

cp tempest.conf.sample tempest.conf

Subsections below describe sections and options that can be updated with Tempest's config file.

How to run tests

Run only cli tests

tox -evenv bash tools/pretty_tox.sh \"tempest.cli.*manila*\"

Run only api tests

tox -evenv bash tools/pretty_tox.sh \"tempest.api.share*\"

Run only api and cli tests

tox -evenv bash tools/pretty_tox.sh \"tempest.api.share* tempest.cli.*manila*\"

Run only api and cli tests with specified amount of threads

export TEMPEST_CONCURRENCY=4
tox -evenv bash tools/pretty_tox.sh \"tempest.api.share* tempest.cli.*manila* -- --concurrency=$TEMPEST_CONCURRENCY\"

Above action will try to run Tempest in 4 threads, if your host does have at least 4 cores. By default it uses amount of threads equal to amount of available cores.

Manila tests are OK using concurrent threads.

If something went wrong with test launch

Exception may be raised on step where tests are gathered and parsed and as a result we would see something similar to the followingː

running testr
Non-zero exit code (2) from test listing. stdout='\xb3)\x01@d@Ytempest.api.share.admin.test_admin_actions.AdminActionsTest.test_force_delete_share[gate]<Z\x90"\xb3)\x01@g@\\

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ summary ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
ERROR:   venv: commands failed

There could be different causes for that, in most cases - dependency issues, when some dependency is not installed and can not be imported. Or python syntax error, if something were changed in code, etc...

As we can see, it does not show us real problem and we need dig root cause up. It can be done by a lot of means, for example, try nextː

nosetests -sv path/to/tests

or

.tox/venv/bin/python -m testtools.run discover -t ./ path/to/tests

or

testr run path/to/tests

How to write own tests

Where to put new tests

All tests, that cover admin API are stored in

tempest/api/share/admin/*

All tests, that cover non-admin API are stored in

tempest/api/share/*

Add method as API caller

All such methods are stored in

tempest/services/share/json/shares_client.py

XML is considered as deprecated and tests for it were removed, so, only json "client" is expected.

Positive/Negative

Positive and negative tests are separated into different modules, module with "negative" tests should have "_negative" suffix. Example of module with positive testsː

tempest/api/share/test_shares.py

Example of module with negative testsː

tempest/api/share/test_shares_negative.py

Resolving concurrency issue

If some test is sensible to changes that can be done by other tests, this test should use isolated tenant, example of it can be found in quota tests, located in

tempest/api/share/admin/test_quotas.py

Reusing resources

If several tests have same dependencies, they should use same resources if possible, it can be created in "setUpClass" method. Example can be found hereː

tempest/api/share/test_shares_actions.py

Utilization of resources

Utilization stuff is defined in the following moduleː

tempest/api/share/base.py

Basic actionsː

1) All setUpClass methods should be decorated with "@test.safe_setup" decorator.
Reasonː if we get Exception on some step in setUpClass, tearDownClass won't start. So, this decorator runs 'tearDownClass' in any case.
2) Create resources that should be deleted with methods from base class.
correctː self.create_share() - will add resources to deletion queue
incorrectː self.shares_client.create_share() - won't add resource to deletion queue

Common infoː

All resources in deletion queue will be deleted in LIFO sequence - "last in first out" or "last created first deleted".
There are two deletion queuesː
- runs after each test
- runs after each test-suite (class with tests)
Be attentive setting up it.
