Who's available ¶
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion.
Specifically in the case of problem related to test day wiki, please reach out to Elijah DeLee at email@example.com or on irc (nick: elijah_d)
Prerequisite for Test Day ¶
- Fedora 24, 25, or 26, RHEL 7, CentOS 7 system ( bare metal or VM )
- Root access on the system
Ansible install on Fedora 26 is currently broken. Rumor is, it is manually installable. Unless you want to battle install issues today, it is best to go with Fedora 25
- If Pulp was installed using Ansible, then "docs:" https://docs.pulpproject.org/user-guide/installation/index.html are not applicable.
- To confirm that Pulp was installed properly run:
pulp-admin login -u admin -p admin
For a guide on some ways to spin up a VM on your machine. see Virtualization quickstart
For some information on how to provision a machine from a cloud provider such as digital ocean see Provisioning Test Machine from Cloud
Resources (where to get RPMs, fedora images, etc) ¶
You can also find the packages themselves here:
2.14 beta RPMs
How to test? ¶
Run the tests
If you'd like to run the integration test suite, pulp-smash or any individual tests, you can run them either locally on the pulp_server or remotely from any machine that can SSH into the pulp_server.¶
For docs on pulp-smash, see http://pulp-smash.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ where you can find instructions on how to install and configure pulp-smash to run against your pulp install.
If you have trouble, email us or ping us on IRC and we can help you get it set up!
Exploratory testing ¶
You can help out by playing around with the tool in whatever ways you can think of: try out all the things you can find.
Get creative! Any problems you find please file a bug, or report to the IRC channel. See Filing new issues
Look for other quick start guides among the plugin documentation. Note that the main docs.pulpproject.org may direct you to docs for 2.13, check the URL to make sure you are looking at the right version.
As a user, you should be able to Create, Read, Update, and Delete repositories and the data within. Is this the case? Where do you run into trouble?
Verifying existing issues ¶
There are three different ways you can use existing issues.
1. Verify that user stories marked "closed" work¶
2. Verify that bugs fixed in the 2.14 release are indeed fixed!¶
3. Recreate outstanding bugs¶
Validate existence of outstanding bugs in 2.14 beta.
If the bug is replicable and seems suitable for for pulp-smash tests, file an issue on pulp-smash github issues
Filing new issues ¶
If you have problems with any of the tests, first search for a issue related to the same bug and add a comment on the issue at https://pulp.plan.io.
Otherwise, report the bug to https://pulp.plan.io in the appropriate project section.
For example, you can file a new bug or find an existing issue for the debian plugin under the Debain issues
Again, if you are having trouble finding where to file your issue or search for existing ones, join us on IRC to get help!
How to report results ¶
If you found a new bug, then you can file a new issue as described above. Also, refer to Issue filing template
