examples/example.rb

DEBUGGING

Debug can be enabled setting the following environment variables:

  • VCLOUD_REST_DEBUG_LEVEL: to specify the log level (e.g., INFO, DEBUG)
  • VCLOUD_REST_LOG_FILE: to specify the output file (defaults to STDOUT)

TESTING

Simply run:

rake

Or:

ruby spec/connection_spec.rb

Note: in order to run tests with ruby 1.8.x you need to export RUBYOPT="rubygems"

Write new tests

Tests are now managed using VCR and thus real interactions are recorded and replayed.

In order to write new tests the following steps are required:

  1. create a file test_credentials.yml
  2. create a new test entry specifying a new VCR cassette my_test_case.yml
  3. review and anonymize data if necessary under spec/fixtures/vcr_cassettes/my_test_case.yml

Note: values in test_credentials.yml are automatically anonymized.

Examples:

=> test_credentials.yml
:host: https://vcloud_instance_url
:username: test_username
:password: test_password
:org: test_organization


=> Test entry in connection_spec.rb
  it "should power off a given vapp" do
    VCR.use_cassette('vapps/poweroff_vapp') do
      connection.login
      task_id = connection.poweroff_vapp("65b4dbc9-b0b1-46e4-a420-8f8147369f8b")
      expect(task_id).to eq "ae791b59-4c9f-4fe2-9916-703f1fc3cbd5"
    end
  end

=> Recorded fixture (credentials auto-anonymized)
