a special outcome for tests that are blocked for external reasons

Project description

A pytest outcome for tests you dont run for external/environmental reason.

examples of such reasons reasons are:

  • lack of access to a bugtracker telling you what tests apply for the current version of software under test

  • lack of access to a backend service providing essential details for the tests in question

  • issue in a bugtracker is unresolved

  • failure of the internet connection


$ pip install pytest-external-blockers


import os
import pytest
from .issues import get_tracker

pytestmark = pytest.mark.skipif(
    "BUGTRACKER" in os.environ,
    reason="no bugtracker configured")

def bugtracker():
        return get_tracker():
    except Exception:
        pytest.block("bugtracker unavailiable")

def _block_unresolved(request, bugtracker):
    issue = request.node.getmarker('issue')
    if issue is not None:
        for issue_id in issue.args:
            if bugtracker.is_unresolved(issue_id)
                    "{issue_id} was not resolved".format(issue_id))
