The preferred way to run the unit tests is using
tox. There are multiple
test targets that can be run to validate the code.
tox -e pep8
Style guidelines enforcement.
tox -e py38
Traditional unit testing (Python 3.8).
tox -e functional
Live functional testing against an existing OpenStack instance. (Python 3.8)
tox -e cover
Generate a coverage report on unit testing.
Functional testing assumes the existence of a clouds.yaml file as supported by os-client-config. It assumes the existence of a cloud named devstack that behaves like a normal DevStack installation with a demo and an admin user/tenant - or clouds named functional_admin and functional_nonadmin.
