Extend py.test for RPC OpenStack testing.

Project description


See Build Status on Travis CI

Extend py.test for RPC OpenStack testing.

Quick Start Guide

  1. You can install “pytest-zigzag” via pip from PyPI

    $ pip install pytest-zigzag
  2. Or you can install “pytest-zigzag” via pip from disk (assumes you’re in the root of the repo):

    $ pip install -e .


Once installed the plug-in will automatically be loaded by all py.test test runs executed in the Python environment in which the pytest-zigzag was installed.


JUnitXML RPC Specific Properties

If a user executes py.test tests with the --junitxml and with this plug-in installed, the resulting XML log file will contain a test suite properties element. The properties element will contain information gathered about the test run fetched from the local environment.


You can supply a json config to this plugin containing a dictionary. Each key / value will become a property name and value on the test suite node of the resulting xml. There is one required config: pytest_zigzag_env_vars. This should be a json object where the keys are the environment variable names to be collected, if you set value to a string that value will be used. If the value is null it will be pulled from the environment.

The location of the config file can be specified in two ways:

  1. In a pytest ini file:

  2. Explicitly on the command line:

    pytest /path/to/ --pytest-zigzag-config=/path/to/config/file

Any property defined in the config file can be overriden by creating an environment variable of the same name. see this


See CONTRIBUTING.rst for more details on developing for the “pytest-zigzag” project.
