ipa-run-tests - Run the FreeIPA test suite


ipa-run-tests [options]


ipa-run-tests is a wrapper around nosetests that run the FreeIPA test suite. It is
intended to be used for developer testing and in continuous integration systems.

It loads IPA-internal Nose plugins ordered-tests and beakerlib. The ordered-tests plugin
is enabled automatically.

The FreeIPA test suite installed system-wide is selected via Nose's --where option. It is
possible to select a subset of the entire test suite by specifying a test file relative to
the ipatests package, for example:

ipa-run-tests test_integration/test_simple_replication.py


All command-line options are passed to the underlying Nose runner. See nosetests(1) for a
complete list.

The internal IPA plugins add an extra option:

Enable BeakerLib integration. Test phases, failures and passes, and log messages
are reported using beakerlib(1) commands. This option requires the beakerlib.sh
script to be sourced.


0 if the command was successful

nonzero if any error or failure occurred


Please see ipa-test-config(1) for a description of configuration environment variables.
