== What to test? ==¶
Testers can walk through a manual upgrade from an existing pulp install, installing manually both pulp and the pulp_debian plugin,
or can skip testing installation (and the documentation for that) by using ansible to install and moving on to confirming functionality of the project, that bugs that were fixed in the release are indeed fixed, or other exploratory testing.

== 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¶
You can find closed "user stories" here
2. Verify that bugs fixed in the 2.14 release are indeed fixed!¶
3. Recreate outstanding bugs¶
Validate existence of outstanding bugs.
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
If you verified that a fix is correct or that a bug still exists, then comment on the issue with details about your system including all information pertinent to filing a new bug: Issue filing template
