SenlinClient Tests

Unit Tests

Senlinclient contains a suite of unit tests, in the senlinclient/tests/unit directory.

Any proposed code change will be automatically rejected by the OpenStack Jenkins server if the change causes unit test failures.

Running the tests

There are a number of ways to run unit tests currently, and there’s a combination of frameworks used depending on what commands you use. The preferred method is to use tox, which calls stestr via the tox.ini file. To run all tests simply run:


This will create a virtual environment, load all the packages from test-requirements.txt and run all unit tests as well as run flake8 and hacking checks against the code.

Note that you can inspect the tox.ini file to get more details on the available options and what the test run does by default.

Running a subset of tests using tox

One common activity is to just run a single test, you can do this with tox simply by specifying to just run py27 or py35 tests against a single test:

tox -epy27 senlinclient.tests.unit.v1.test_node.TestNodeList.test_node_list_defaults

Or all tests in the file:

tox -epy27 senlinclient.tests.unit.v1.test_node

For more information on these options and how to run tests, please see the stestr documentation.
