Ansible test

Make testinfra easier with ansible repository.

Write your test directly in your roles

purpose of ansible-tests

I want to be able to write testinfra tests in my role and use my inventories and my playbooks to run them


ansible-tests --file-name tests.yml --inventory inventory/dev.ini

Test your ansible roles

Your tests should be in test directory inside your role :

    ├── defaults
    │   └── main.yml
    ├── handlers
    │   └── main.yml
    ├── tasks
    │   └── main.yml
    └── tests

Example of test file :

# tests/

def test_check_nginx_is_installed(host):
  nginx = host.package('nginx')
  assert nginx.is_installed

def test_nginx_is_running(host):
  nginx = host.service('nginx')
  assert nginx.is_running

Example of corersponding task file :

# tasks/main.yml
- name: install nginx
    name: nginx
    state: present

- name: start nginx
    name: nginx
    state: started

To run ansible test, you have to respect this requirements:

  • your roles must be in roles directory
  • you must have a playbook or a file to describe the matching between tests and servers

tests.yml supported formats

- hosts: bdd
  roles: postgres
- hosts: all
  roles: secu
- hosts: all
    - base
    - secu
- hosts:
  - bdd
  - web-app
  - role: secu
  - role: users
- hosts: bdd:web-app
