Tempest - The OpenStack Integration Test Suite
This is a set of integration tests to be run against a live cluster.
To run Tempest, you first need to create a configuration file that will tell Tempest where to find the various OpenStack services and other testing behaviour switches.
The easiest way to create a configuration file is to copy the sample one in the etc/ directory
$> cd $TEMPEST_ROOT_DIR $> cp etc/tempest.conf.sample etc/tempest.conf
After that, open up the etc/tempest.conf file and edit the variables to fit your test environment.
If you have a running devstack environment, look at the environment variables in your devstack/localrc file. The ADMIN_PASSWORD variable should match the api_key value in the tempest.conf [nova] configuration section. In addition, you will need to get the UUID identifier of the image that devstack uploaded and set the image_ref value in the [environment] section in the tempest.conf to that image UUID.
After setting up your configuration file, you can execute the set of Tempest tests by using nosetests
$> nosetests tempest
