DB Setup

The usage of coverage2sql is split into 2 stages. First you need to prepare a database with the proper schema; coverage2sql-db-manage should be used to do this. The utility requires db connection info which can be specified with a config file. Obviously the sql connector type, user, password, address, and database name should be specific to your environment. coverage2sql-db-manage will use alembic to setup the db schema. You can run the db migrations with a config file:

coverage2sql-db-manage --config-file etc/coverage2sql.conf upgrade head

This will bring the DB schema up to the latest version for coverage2sql.


Once you have a database setup with the proper database schema you can then use the coverage2sql command to populate the database with data from your test coverage file. coverage2sql takes in a .coverage file through by passing it file paths as positional arguments to the script at this moment.

For example:

coverage2sql --config-file etc/coverage2sql.conf coverage2sql .coverage

There are several options for running coverage2sql, they can be listed with:

coverage2sql --help

The only required option is --database-connection. The options can either be used on the CLI, or put in a config file. If a config file is used you need to specify the location on the CLI.
