A set of tools for executing validation of the operation of a system. It provides a way to organize and execute Pester tests which are written to validate operation (rather than limited feature tests)
Modules which include a Diagnostics directory are inspected for Pester tests in either the "Simple" or "Comprehensive" directories. If files are found in those directories, they will be inspected to determine whether they are Pester tests. If Pester tests are found, the test names in those files will be returned.
The module structure required is as follows:
- Simple simple tests are held in this location (e.g., ping, serviceendpoint checks)
- Comprehensive comprehensive scenario tests should be placed here
It supplies two cmdlets:
