Project description

The python-based setuptest for the CYBR CSCW-SUITE (CCS):

(will use selenium & pytest) Requirements:

  1. python3
  2. Chrome
  3. ChromeDriver (must fit to the Chrome-version!).
  • Get ChromeDriver from:
  • or from the source mentioned in the setup-tutorial related to your local operation system (Windows, Mac, Linux ..)

NOTICE #1: This setuptest is part of the CYBR-CSCW-SUITE (CCS)

  • you can get this FREE groupware-solution via sourceforge:


the ccs-setuptest is simulating the user's / application-administrator's setup-steps with the help of selenium & pytest. the setuptest will perform the automated steps outgoing from your LOCAL MACHINE accessing the ccs-web-app ON YOUR SERVER

  • creating the database-tables
  • creating a Super-Admin account (= the First User who makes the registration!)
  • based on this Super-User-permission: login, open the ccs-management & creates the slots for 5 projects (with the Super-User as Project Administrator & Entering the SendGrid API-Key for the email-functionality)
  • logging into project1 & creating a Project & the WBS (Work-Breakdown-Structure)
  • creating a user-profile, performing a personality-assessment from the build-in personality-test & checking the user's CFLX
  • making some posts & direct-answers (repetitive for all WBS-Levels)


  1. these are simulated tasks, you can & will perform most of them manually for your real projects in the same way
  2. if you run this test, the project in slot1 will be populated with the example-project. It might be a good idea, to keep it that way - or even better: later modify the content to meet yor needs / create a WBS representing a structure for a typical project of your group or organization for an extended deployment throughout the company.

prepare, install & usage:

A) The short cli description (works for Linux-users - adapt accordingly if you are on Windows or Mac - or check the B) long version below)

  • Be aware: you need to make the mandatory needed changes within the Conf/ file before you make the installation!

a) download & unzip the from sourceforge:


unzp into the ccstest/ created directory:

python3 -m zipfile -e download ccstest

b) modify the configuration-file "Conf/":

open the Conf/ file & make the needed modifications: (at least: set the correct IP)

nano ccstest/setuptest/Conf/

c) save & overwrite the

a temporary BUG-STOP HERE!

... there seems to be a problem with the build at the moment.

workaround until fixed:

  1. install the requirements manually (selenium & pytest via pip):

    pip3 install selenium

    pip3 install pytest

  2. navigate into the unzipped setuptest with the modified Conf/ file and simply start with:

    pytest RunSetups/


pytest Tests/

d) install the ccs-setuptest:

python3 install --user

e) run the setup, install & test automation for the installed CYBR CSCW-SUITE (CCS) by typing:

f) execute the ccs-setuptest, check values & click the [RUN ALL 7] btn

=> Enjoy the test & setup-automation.

B) the longer version:

1. prepare the setup (download, unzip, modify the Conf/
  1. download, unzip & cd into the setuptest/

  2. open the Conf/ with your text-editor (editor,nano,gedit,touch, whatever ...)

  3. modify / exchange the dummy-values with those fitting to your own situation (eg: enter the IP of your server where you have the CCS running, exchange the SendGrid API-Key, the email & its public PGP-Key)

save / override the yet modified file

2. install

  • you need the setuptools installed on your machine. Check / install via pip3:

    pip3 install setuptools --user

If you are new to python & the usage of setuptools: if there is a within a python package, you simply can install it (based on the installed setuptools) with:

python3 install --user

3. run the setup, install & test automation for the installed CYBR CSCW-SUITE (CCS) by typing:

4. execute the ccs-setuptest, check values & click the [RUN ALL 7] btn**

=> Enjoy the test & setup-automation.

The setuptest will:

  • Open the Conf/ file, so you can modify the values (The IP of your CCS, the SendGrid API-Key, E-Mail-Address & publicPGP-Key ..)
  • Call the installation-script for creating the database-tables of your CCS
  • Make the automated setup for your first 5 projects
  • Will create a testing-project and simulate an admin who is creating a project, a WBS, creates a user-profile, testst the user's CFLX, starts to make a posting.

How to install the CYBR CSCW-SUITE (CCS) on your server:

Requirements: Linux & docker / docker-compose installed

  • from the terminal of your Linux-server / VPS (if you need one, then get one via: - and support my server-costs)


    docker-compose up --build

Installation & Execution of this ccs-setuptest

Requires ChromeDriver & Chrome Web-Browser to be installed - ensure to have the correct versions which fit to each other! Installation is easy - check the docs / tutorials for your local Operation System (Windows / Mac / Linux), then proceed and:

Detailed usage of the ccs-setuptest

<1st page>

  • The yellow [CONTINUE] button will open the page displaying the actual setup-install values.

<2nd page>

  • The yellow [SETUP] button will open the Conf/ file, so you can modify the values (The IP of your CCS, the SendGrid API-Key, E-Mail-Address & publicPGP-Key ..)

make the changes, save & re-run with:

<2nd page>

  • The red [RUN ALL 7] button (bottom of 2nd page) will perform the installation with the values & perform a fully automated show-up-test showing and explaining you the basic functionalities for setting-up the projects as well as how to use the application.

NOTE: this will use the first slot of your CCS and populate it with an example project!

This means, your per default available projects for your productive work will be reduced to 4, unless you decide to fully delete the database-tables of projectdb1 database - and rebuild the tables by calling: https://[IP or domain]/1/zubringer/create8Tables.php

manually start & select the setup, installation & testing-scripts

At first, you need to make the settings by modifying the Conf/ file with the text-editor of your choice (nano, gedit, touch, editor) - then you can call the scripts via pytest

You can call the scripts manually - and only the selected one or ones from your terminal / console/ bash/ shell/ as well:

  • for running all tests within the directory: pytest foldername/

eg for running all setups or running all tests:

pytest RunSetups/


pytest Tests/
  • for running a single test, cd to the test and type: pytest (see details below)

Setup-Scripts available:

cd RunSetups/





Walk-Through tests available (still in beta: will work, but might throw errors. Its a test-script issue then - not an application one!):

cd Tests/




if you need to make changes to the Conf/ afterwards

YOU CANNOT SIMPLY CHANGE THE VALUES FROM WITHIN THE DOWNLOAD-FOLDER ... the installation is moving the files which are executed to an other, Operation-System-dependend place. After the installation, a change of the file - like performed via:

nano ccstest/setuptest/Conf/ 

will have no effect.

but you can simply uninstall, delete all the unzipped setuptest folders & start from a new unzip:

  1. uninstall:

    pip3 uninstall setuptest

  2. remove all of the unzipped folders

  3. unzip the downloaded folder, and now you can make the changes of the Conf/ file

  4. store the modified file

  5. install the setuptest again via:

     python3 install --user
  6. execute via:

  7. click [CONTINUE], check the -yet hopefully modified- values, scroll down & click the buttons

enjoy the automation.
