Description Izidor Matušov 2010-08-06 03:35:31 EDT
Description of problem:
There is a difference between RHTS and beaker in the usage of test parameters. In RHTS your parameter gets extra prefix TEST_PARAM_, however, there is no prefix in beaker. It means VAR will be TEST_PARAM_VAR in RHTS, but VAR in beaker. Some tests may have problems with running.

I would also appreciate if the test parameters for /distribution/reservesys are accessible through shell,e.g. put them into /etc/profile.

How reproducible:
Run whatever test with test parameter:

bkr workflow-simple --taskparam=VAR=something --task=/whatever

The TEST_PARAM_ prefix was discussed in Bug 603719: some parameters are using TEST_PARAM_ prefix and some do not. Does it explain everything?

Bug 621814 should solve the script with environment variables you asked for.
