The PyTest action in Continua is a wrapper around the pytest.exe command line. If you're having trouble using the PyTest action, please refer to the Command Line Reference.

PyTest action is a test framework for Python applications and libraries.

PyTest

Working Folder

The working directory for the pip command line. Leave blank to default to the workspace folder.

Tests

the paths to files or directories containing tests to run. Run specific tests within a module by specifying its node id. One path per line.

Root Directory

Install packages from the given requirements files. One file path per line. [--requirement]

Output Directory

The path to the root directory for tests. [--rootdir]

Report File

The path to store JUnit-XML style report. [--junit-xml]

Use command line executable in virtual environment scripts folder if it exists.

If this is ticked and exists, the pytest executable in the virtual environment scripts folder will be used instead.

Install PyTest on agent using Pip

If this is ticked, PyTest is installed on the agent using Pip. A new tab appears for entering Pip settings.

Using 

The Using drop down is populated by any property collector properties whose namespace matches the pattern defined by the PyTest action. The pattern for this action is ^PyTest\..*. The default property collector searches the environment path for "pytest.exe".

If you create a property collector for this action, make sure you select the Path Finder PlugIn type and give it a name that will match the pattern above in blue. Example names listed here, search the table's Plugin column for "PyTest".

For more in-depth explanations on property collectors see Property Collectors.

Alternatively, you can select the Custom option from the Using drop down list and specify a path in the resulting input field that will be displayed. Please read Why it's a good idea to use a property collector before using this option.

Options

Verbosity

Remove all cache contents at start of test run.

Disable warnings.

If this is ticked, warnings are disabled. [–disable-warnings]

Warning Control

This option controls how often warnings are output to stderr. Leave blank to default to one warning for each source line where it occurs. [-W]

Multiple options may be given; when a warning matches more than one option, the action for the last matching option is performed. Invalid options are ignored (though, a warning message is printed about invalid options when the first warning is issued).

The simplest form of argument is one of the following action strings:

  • ignore - Ignore all warnings
  • default - Explicitly request the default behaviour (printing each warning once per source line)
  • all - Print a warning each time it occurs (this may generate many messages if a warning is triggered repeatedly for the same source line, such as inside a loop)
  • module - Print each warning only the first time it occurs in each module
  • once - Print each warning only the first time it occurs in the program.
  • error - Raise an exception instead of printing a warning message.

The full form of argument is: action:message:category:module:line

For more information, please refer to the warnings module in the python documentation.

Fail action if any tests fail

Tick this to cause the build to fail if any tests fail.

Fail action if any tests error

Tick this to cause the build to fail if an error occurred while running any test.

Fail action if any tests are inconclusive

Timeout (in seconds)

How long to wait for the action to finish running before timing out. Leaving this blank (or zero) will default to 86400 seconds (24 hours).

Treat failure as warning

Tick to continue build on failure marking the action with a warning status.

Ignore warnings

If this is ticked, any warnings logged will not mark the action with a warning status.


Environment

Generate system environment variables

Tick this checkbox to set up a list of new environment variables prefixed with 'ContinuaCI.' for all current system expression objects and variables.

Mask sensitive variable values in system environment variables

This checkbox is visible only if the 'Generate system environment variables' checkbox is ticked.

If this is ticked, the values of any variables marked as sensitive will be masked with **** when setting system environment variables. Clear this to expose the values.
