Ansible role for running tempest tests on undercloud or overcloud.


This Ansible role allows to run tempest tests against installed undercloud or overcloud from undercloud. It can use upstream sources with virtualenv, RDO packages and kolla container image for tempest.

  • tempest_plugins_git: list - (optional) List of URLs for openstack tempest plugins you want to have installed. (Required) tempest_format: venv For example: tempest_format: venv tempest_plugins_git: [https://opendev.org/openstack/keystone-tempest-plugin, https://opendev.org/openstack/cinder-tempest-plugin]
  • tempest_extra_config: dict - A dict of tempest configuration which needs to be overridden in tempest.conf, It should be like section.key: value.

  • tempest_dir: The path to tempest workspace directory (default: /home/stack/tempest)
  • tempest_data: The path to keep tempest related files used for running tempest (default: /home/stack)
  • test_black_regex: A set of tempest tests to skip (default: [])
  • tempest_version_dict: A dict with release name as key and tempest tag version for that release as value

  • public_net_pool_start, public_net_pool_end, public_net_gateway, public_physical_network, public_segmentation_id -- parameters used to create the public floating IP network
  • tempest_deployer_input_file: The path to tripleo deployer input file which contains the pre configured configuration for the deployed cloud using TripleO.
  • tempest_os_cloud: String name of the cloud to export as OS_CLOUD when using clouds.yaml rather than stackrc

  • tempest_headless_chrome_port: - the entrypoint into the headless chrome container

Skip tests file

Tempest test can be skipped if they are in a skip file, using the whole test name or a regular expression. Since the intention is to use the list of skip tests in other parts of quickstart-extras, it's easier to have this list of skip tests in yaml format where you can set the skip test, reason and launchpad or bugzilla. This make easier later to check whether the test still valid or not to be skipped. Skip files are under roles/validate-tempest/vars/tempest_skip_VERSION.yaml. In these files you can add a regex, together with a reason, a bugzilla or launchpad bug and target host (undercloud/overcloud )related to that particular test. If target host is set undercloud:true, it will be skipped on the undercloud.Launchpad and/or bugzilla re optional, however you must specify a reason why you are skipping the test.

Example of skip file:

  - test: 'tempest.scenario.test_volume_boot_pattern'
    reason: 'rdo-manager tempest smoke test failing on "floating ip pool not found"'
    bz: 'https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1272289'
  - test: 'tempest.api.volume.test_volumes_get'
    reason: 'rdo-manager tempest smoke test failing on "floating ip pool not found"'
  - test: 'tempest.api.identity.*v3'
    reason: 'Tempest Identify tests failed on V3 api on OSP-D puddle'
    bz: 'https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1266947'
  - test: 'tempest.api.image.v2.test_images_metadefs_namespace_properties.MetadataNamespacePropertiesTest.test_basic_meta_def_namespace_property'
    reason: 'glance is not calling glance-manage db_load_metadefs'
    lp: 'https://bugs.launchpad.net/tripleo/+bug/1664995'
    # Skip list for undercloud
  - test: 'tempest.api.image.v2.test_images_metadefs_namespace_properties.MetadataNamespacePropertiesTest.test_basic_meta_def_namespace_property'
    reason: 'glance is not calling glance-manage db_load_metadefs'
    lp: 'https://bugs.launchpad.net/tripleo/+bug/1664995'
    undercloud: true

Real time bug check

If check_tempest_bugs is set to true, a script will be called and will check in real time, all tests who has a bugzilla or a launchpad bug. This will generate a new skip file, removing all the bugs that were already closed but wasn't updated in the yaml skip file yet.

Using validate-tempest role with tripleo-quickstart

To run tempest with tripleo-quickstart, run the following command:


bash quickstart.sh \
    --bootstrap \
    --tags all \
    --config $WORKSPACE/config/general_config/$CONFIG.yml \
    --working-dir $WORKSPACE/ \
    --no-clone \
    --release master-tripleo-ci \
    --extra-vars test_ping=False \
    --extra-vars run_tempest=True  \

Note: by using --extra-vars, we can change the validate-tempest role variables.
