Need a better end-to-end test (that exercises model loader/babel, haproxy, resources, traversal, graphadmin)

Need to include testing for services that aren't in the critical flow (sparky, search-data-service, data-router, spike, champ, gizmo, etc)


8th Jan: Testing should cover this case: MSB-198 - Getting issue details... STATUS

20th Feb: Move from CSIT to Robot. See PTL 2019-02-19 presentation https://wiki.onap.org/download/attachments/53249527/Dev%20Testing_Enhancement%20for%20Dublin_V2.pptx?version=1&modificationDate=1550580552000&api=v2

  • Updated suggestions from gerrit reviews https://gerrit.onap.org/r/79583:
    • Brian Freeman

      if the intent is to have a aai-backwards-compatibility-v14.robot function that would get added to each release as the version number increases then I guess you need to create aai-[something]-v14, aai-something]-v16 etc. Not sure these are end to end tests becuase we arent testing that a Dublin vFW works end to end with v14 API's when most components will be calling the v16 APIs. If its simply AAI regression as part of verify/merge CSIT jobs then we should have a nomenclature with CSIT in the filename to distribution End to End tests from CSIT tests. aai-csit-v14 , aai-csit-v11 ?
      Technically even Amsterdam had a mixture of versions supported so it seems like you may want to be testing by version not by release package name ?

    • Daniel Rose

      i looked over catherines presentation. I think if we are going to support csit type tests, i am ok. i think we need to put them in testsuites/<app> and tag those tests as csit. I still also dont think we should put release specific code in here though. I think supporting 2 versions of aai schema is ok if you ar releasing that, but calling something as casablanca is not - the branch should always work with the release it is.

    • Keong Lim
      AAI team did have an idea that our tests could be used to diagnose installation problems, e.g. pulling the wrong version and wondering why it doesn't work. So as part of the "sanity integration" testing, we would publish these tools/scripts for use on any installation (development, test labs, production, etc), not just the latest.

      I will update a new patchset.

      The naming can be updated. Wasn't sure if the release names were more familiar than the API version numbers.

Setup Procedure

Follow testsuite Readme for setup: https://gerrit.onap.org/r/gitweb?p=testsuite.git;a=blob;f=README.md;hb=HEAD

Python Installation

As of 25th Feb 2019, Python 2.7.12 was replaced by 2.7.15 so that version was installed instead. See also the note about deprecation in the python output below.

As of 25th Feb 2019, Nokia Robot Editor (RED) 0.7.0 was replaced by 0.8.11, so that version was installed instead: https://github.com/nokia/RED/releases/

Note that the "product" contains a stand-alone copy of Eclipse, whereas the "feature" is an add-on to a pre-existing installation of Eclipse: https://github.com/nokia/RED/blob/master/installation.md


Looking into https://gerrit.onap.org/r/gitweb?p=testsuite.git;a=blob;f=setup.sh;hb=HEAD

Due to local differences in my environment, copied the "pip install" commands and ran them individually instead of the whole setup.sh script.

On the heatbridge setup, got "error: Microsoft Visual C++ 9.0 is required. Get it from http://aka.ms/vcpython27" which needs fixing.


As of 25th Feb 2019, chromedriver 2.43 was replaced by 2.46, so that version was installed instead: http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/index.html?path=2.46/


The setup for kafkacat and protobuf does not appear to support Windows, so these were not installed on this environment.

Using RED

Clone testsuite repository, see https://gerrit.onap.org/r/#/admin/projects/testsuite

In RED, use "File / Open Projects from File System" menu and choose the "testsuite/robot" sub-directory.

The file format is described in http://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/RobotFrameworkUserGuide.html#supported-file-formats

RED screenshot

Settings section

See also http://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/RobotFrameworkUserGuide.html#all-available-settings-in-test-data

The Settings section appears to have some references to other files as "Library" or "Resource". These files act as shared modules implementing common sub-routines. The "Documentation" appears to be a comment for the file.

Variables section

See also http://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/RobotFrameworkUserGuide.html#variables

This section appears to define variables or macros with values that can be used in the "Keywords" section. They are potentially available to other Robot scripts as well, see also the "global_properties" script.

It appears that all variables share the global namespace, so naming conventions are used to distinguish between variables that are intended for global use (prefixed by "GLOBAL" and written in all-caps) vs variables intended for local use.

Keywords section

See also http://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/RobotFrameworkUserGuide.html#creating-user-keywords

This section appears to define sub-routines that can be called by other "keywords". The "[Documentation]" appears to be a comment for the sub-routine. The "[Arguments]" appears to be a list of named parameters passed into the sub-routine. The lines that follow appear to be calls to other sub-routines in sequential order. Values can be returned from sub-routines and internal structures of the values can also be extracted and processed.

Worked Examples

Running Robot

  • In demo repository, "boot/robot/ete.sh" executes the "runTags.sh" script inside the openecompete_container
  • In oom repository, "kubernetes/robot/ete-k8s.sh" executes the "runTags.sh" script inside robot pod
  • In optf repository, "cmso/cmso-robot/docker/cmso-service/ete_test.sh" executes "docker-compose" to run the robot container
  • In optf repository, "cmso/cmso-robot/ete.sh" executes the ROBOT_CMD="python -m robot.run" using the older method for Python 2.7 compatibility
  • In testsuite repository, "runEteTag.sh" executes "python -m robot.run" connecting to an X-Windows display created by Xvfb and captures the command line output into a file

The robot command line needs:

  • Path to robot library modules
  • Path to robot variables file
  • Tags of the tests to run
  • A log-level setting
  • An output file
  • An input directory

See also "robot --help" or http://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/RobotFrameworkUserGuide.html#id882

For example

Robot command line
# Using Python 2.7 run-time
python -m robot.run \
  --loglevel ${LOG_LEVEL}    # aka -L option \
  --outputdir ${OUTPUT_DIR}  # aka -d option \
  --variablefile ${VARIABLE_FILE}  # aka -V option \
  --pythonpath ${PATH_DIRECTORIES} # aka -P option \
  --include ${TAGS_INCLUDED} # aka -i option \
  --exclude ${TAGS_EXCLUDED} # aka -e option \

robot will create an output XML file, a log HTML file and a report HTML file by default.

robot can also create documentation using the "python -m robot.libdoc" command.

Simple example

Simple Robot command line for AAI
cd testsuite  # cloned from git/gerrit repository

# run the AAI scripts from the right directory
robot --argumentfile my-aai.txt robot/testsuites/aai/

26th June: Robot testing for Sparky sanity tests

  • Use AAI robot scripts to create an object, e.g. vpn-binding, i.e. do not do Teardown steps that delete the objects at the end of the test
  • Login to Portal and navigate to AAI UI (Sparky)
  • Use Sparky to browse the object, thus providing minimum test of sparky-fe, sparky-be, search-data-service microservices
  • See attachments on 2019-06-20 AAI Developers Meeting
