API testing for BC Data Catalog

Project description

Automated BCDC API Testing

Intention is to test the CKAN API after deployment.

Current tests include:

  • verification of preconfigured orgs required for testing
  • CRUD tests for packages.

OC Build for BCDC-TEST

pulls package from new OC build triggered by github actions on commit to master branch

how to create new build from build config

oc create -f

start build

oc start-build bcdc-test -n databcdc


each environment will have its own defined .yaml file within the k8s dir.

  • test-dwelf-job-template.yaml
  • test-toyger-job-template.yaml

how to run job from yaml as template, so we can change the name using a generated value appended to name

  • CADI
oc process -f | oc create -f -
  • CATI
oc process -f | oc create -f -

OC Development Build for BCDC-TEST-DEV

pulls from new OC build triggered by github actions on push to dev branch

oc create -f

OC Developmnet Jobs for BCDC-TEST-DEV

  • CADI
oc process -f | oc create -f -
  • CATI
oc process -f | oc create -f -

Run Tests locally

pip install pypandoc 
pip install bcdc_apitests
export BCDC_API_KEY=<api-key>
export BCDC_URL=<url-to-ckan>
pytest --pyargs bcdc_apitests


disable teardown

--df Include this switch if you want to disable teardown that deletes the test data that gets generated by the test suite. The various options basically tell the test suite not to delete a particular type of data that are generated by the tests.

Options include:

  • orgs
  • groups
  • packages
  • resources
  • users
  • other
  • ALL


Packaging is currently configured to be built automatically by github actions when a pull request on master has been successfully merged.

packaging version numbers

When a new package is built it will automatically check what the last version is in PYPI for the package and increment that number.

Example if the version in pypi is 7.3.45, the next time the github action triggers it will be 7.3.46. If you want the change either the major or the minor number set the number in packages file, for example to increment the major version number to 8.
