Test suite for ESL's branch of ejabberd

This repository contains test code for ejabberd/MongooseIM. It's used mainly for ESL's branch of ejabberd, but one that may be reused in other projects.

How to run tests

There are 2 ways of running the tests:

By default both commands are using the default.spec file where options like suites to run, config file(s) and log dir are specified. To use custom .spec file (for example to add other suites or remove the existing ones) one must add it to one of the mentioned commands:

make quicktest TESTSPEC=full.spec

Additional erlang binaries required by custom suites can be added to the path by providing ADD_OPTS parameter to the make command. For example:

make quicktest ADD_OPTS="-pa /full/path/to/erlcloud/ebin"

Of course TESTSPEC and ADD_OPTS can be specified at the same time:

make quicktest TESTSPEC=custom.spec ADD_OPTS="-pa /full/path/to/erlcloud/ebin"

Testing various server configurations

It is possible to run tests for various ejabberd configurations.
In order to do this define configuration variables in test.config file, for example:

{ejabberd_configs, [
        [{sm_backend, "{mnesia, []}"},
        {auth_method, "internal"}]},
        [{sm_backend, "{redis, [{pool_size, 3}, {worker_config, [{host, \"localhost\"}, {port, 6379}]}]}"},
        {auth_method, "internal"}]}

For each configuration the given variables merged with values from node1_vars.config will be overlaid with the original ejabberd.cfg file and ejabberd will be restarted.

If there is no ejabberd_configs entry in the config file the test will run ordinarily with running ejabberd configuration.

Changing server configuration in suites

Sometimes it is required to change server configuration for a particular test or test suite. ejabberd_node_utils module introduces a set of functions allowing such server manipulation.

For example to make server require starttls and utilize given certificate, use the module as follows:

init_per_suite(Config) ->

end_per_suite(Config) ->


setup_ejabberd_node(Config0) ->
    Config1 = ejabberd_node_utils:init(Config0),

restore_ejabberd_node(Config) ->

assert_cert_file_exists() ->
    ejabberd_node_utils:file_exists(?CERT_FILE) orelse
        ct:fail("cert file ~s not exists", [?CERT_FILE]).

make_ejabberd_node_require_starttls(Config) ->

mk_value_for_tls_config_pattern() ->
    {tls_config, "{certfile, \"" ++ ?CERT_FILE ++ "\"}, starttls_required,"}.

The above snippet backups current server's config file, asserts that the expected certificate files exists and then produces new config file. At the end it restart the server so that the new configuration can be applied. In the end_per_suite previously backuped config file is restored and the server is restarted again. See ejabberd_node_utils for more information.
