Testing Your OpenStack Code

A Quickstart

This is designed to be enough information for you to run your first tests. Detailed information on testing can be found here:

Install pip:

[apt-get | yum] install python-pip

More information on pip here:

Use pip to install tox:

pip install tox

Run The Tests

Navigate to the project's root directory and execute:


Note: completing this command may take a long time (depends on system resources) also, you might not see any output until tox is complete.

Information about tox can be found here:

Run The Tests in One Environment

Tox will run your entire test suite in the environments specified in the project tox.ini:


envlist = <list of available environments>

To run the test suite in just one of the environments in envlist execute:

tox -e <env>

so for example, run the test suite in py26:

tox -e py26

Run One Test

To run individual tests with tox:

tox -e <env> --

For example, to run the basic Zuul test:

tox -e py27 -- tests.test_scheduler.TestScheduler.test_jobs_launched

To run one test in the foreground (after previously having run tox to set up the virtualenv):

.tox/py27/bin/python -m tests.test_scheduler.TestScheduler.test_jobs_launched

List Failing Tests

.tox/py27/bin/activate testr failing --list

Hanging Tests

The following will run each test in turn and print the name of the test as it is run:

. .tox/py27/bin/activate
testr run --subunit | subunit2pyunit

You can compare the output of that to:

python -m discover --list
