Add "noninteractive" flag to HTS runs to allow for quick run of unattended tests
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:55:56 EDT
Description of problem:
HTS tests can be divided into two categories: interactive and non-interactive. Engineers often like to run the non-interactive tests before they leave for the day/weekend and come back the next workday to a set of test results. Currently, testers need to disable all interactive tests before a simple 'hts' command can be used to run the rest. It would be helpful if we could add a "noninteractive" (or something like that) flag to the run options to allow for a single quick command to run the unattended tests.
Does "v7 certify --mode auto" cover this?
If it will automatically skip the interactive tests, that's exactly what we're looking for.
Well, not exactly. --mode auto will run interactive tests, but these tests will not actually perform all the tests, and these tests will be marked as failures in the results rpm.
On second though, "v7 certify --mode auto" should perform all non-interactive tests. These test runs that pass should be valid for certification for non-interactive tests. That would allow a subsequent invocation of "v7 certify" to pick up a interactive tests (in addition to any failing tests from the first run).
I'll verify this behaviour in v7 1.2.
