Post Tempest Run Cleanup Utility

Utility for cleaning up environment after Tempest test run

Usage: tempest cleanup [--help] [OPTIONS]

If run with no arguments, tempest cleanup will query your OpenStack deployment and build a list of resources to delete and destroy them. This list will exclude the resources from saved_state.json and will include the configured admin account if the --delete-tempest-conf-objects flag is specified. By default the admin project is not deleted and the admin user specified in tempest.conf is never deleted.

Example Run


If step 1 is skipped in the example below, the cleanup procedure may delete resources that existed in the cloud before the test run. This may cause an unwanted destruction of cloud resources, so use caution with this command.


$ tempest cleanup --init-saved-state
$ # Actual running of Tempest tests
$ tempest cleanup

Runtime Arguments

  • --init-saved-state: Initializes the saved state of the OpenStack deployment and will output a saved_state.json file containing resources from your deployment that will be preserved from the cleanup command. This should be done prior to running Tempest tests.

  • --delete-tempest-conf-objects: If option is present, then the command will delete the admin project in addition to the resources associated with them on clean up. If option is not present, the command will delete the resources associated with the Tempest and alternate Tempest users and projects but will not delete the projects themselves.

  • --dry-run: Creates a report (./dry_run.json) of the projects that will be cleaned up (in the _projects_to_clean dictionary [1]) and the global objects that will be removed (domains, flavors, images, roles, projects, and users). Once the cleanup command is executed (e.g. run without parameters), running it again with --dry-run should yield an empty report.

  • --help: Print the help text for the command and parameters.


If during execution of tempest cleanup NotImplemented exception occurres, tempest cleanup won’t fail on that, it will be logged only. NotImplemented errors are ignored because they are an outcome of some extensions being disabled and tempest cleanup is not checking their availability as it tries to clean up as much as possible without any complicated logic.
