Test all your puppet catalogs for compiler warnings and errors

puppet-catalog-test is a tool for capturing and testing warnings and errors the puppet-compiler is emitting during the compilation process.

For a more detailed insight into the puppet-compiler, you can take a look at http://www.masterzen.fr/2012/03/17/puppet-internals-the-compiler/.

Installation

gem install puppet-catalog-test

    -H, --hiera-config PATH          Location of hiera.yaml file
    -i, --include-pattern PATTERN    Include only test cases that match pattern
    -e, --exclude-pattern PATTERN    Exclude test cases that match pattern
    -s, --scenario FILE              Scenario definition to use
    -v, --verbose                    Verbose
    -x, --xml                        Use xml report

Examples

CLI - successfull compile run

$ puppet-catalog-test -m test/cases/working/modules -M test/cases/working/site.pp
[INFO] Using puppet 3.0.2

[PASSED]  default (compile time: 0.003451 seconds)

Rake integration

Testing all catalogs with default facts

When not setting any filters or scenarios puppet-catalog-test will test all nodes defined in site.pp.

require 'puppet-catalog-test'

namespace :catalog do
  PuppetCatalogTest::RakeTask.new(:all) do |t|
    t.module_paths = ["modules"]
    t.manifest_path = File.join("scripts", "site.pp")

    t.include_pattern = ENV["include"]
    t.exclude_pattern = ENV["exclude"]
  end
end

In the case above no facts weren't defined so puppet-catalog-test falls back to some basic facts to satisfy the most basic requirements of puppet. Currently these facts are:

{
  'architecture' => 'x86_64',
  'ipaddress' => '127.0.0.1',
  'local_run' => 'true',
  'disable_asserts' => 'true',
  'interfaces' => 'eth0'
}

Testing all catalogs with custom facts

It is also possible to define a custom set of facts. In this case the fallback facts listed in previous example won't be used.

NOTE: When using custom facts the fact 'fqdn' always has to be set!

require 'puppet-catalog-test'

namespace :catalog do
  PuppetCatalogTest::RakeTask.new(:all) do |t|
    t.module_paths = ["modules"]
    t.manifest_path = File.join("scripts", "site.pp")
    t.facts = {
      "fqdn" => "foo.local",
      "operatingsystem" => "RedHat"
    }

    t.include_pattern = ENV["include"]
    t.exclude_pattern = ENV["exclude"]
  end
end

Scenario testing

Scenarios allow testing of more complex catalogs, e.g. having conditional branches depending on custom facts.

require 'puppet-catalog-test'

namespace :catalog do
  PuppetCatalogTest::RakeTask.new(:scenarios) do |t|
    t.module_paths = [File.join("modules")]
    t.manifest_path = File.join("scripts", "site.pp")

    t.scenario_yaml = "scenarios.yml"

    t.include_pattern = ENV["include"]
    t.exclude_pattern = ENV["exclude"]
  end
end
__default_facts: &default_facts
  architecture: x86_64
  ipaddress: 127.0.0.1
  operatingsystem: SLES
  operatingsystemrelease: 11
  local_run: true
  disable_asserts: true
  interfaces: eth0

SLES_tomcat:
  <<: *default_facts
  fqdn: tomcat-a001.foo.local

REDHAT_tomcat:
  <<: *default_facts
  fqdn: tomcat-a001.foo.local
  operatingsystem: RedHat

SLES_db-dev:
  <<: *default_facts
  fqdn: db-a001.foo.local

REDHAT_db-dev:
  <<: *default_facts
  fqdn: db-a001.foo.local
  operatingsystem: RedHat

NOTE: Scenarios starting with two underscores (like __default_facts) will be ignored.

Reporters (output plugins)

Per default puppet-catalog-test uses the StdoutReporter which prints the result like in the examples above. Besides this you can use in your own Reporter.

Puppet-Catalog-Test also ships a JunitXmlReporter which creates a junit compatible xml report.

require 'puppet-catalog-test'
require 'puppet-catalog-test/junit_xml_reporter'

namespace :catalog do
  PuppetCatalogTest::RakeTask.new(:all) do |t|
    t.module_paths = [File.join("modules")]
    t.manifest_path = File.join("scripts", "site.pp")

    t.reporter = PuppetCatalogTest::JunitXmlReporter.new("puppet-vagrant-playground", "reports/puppet_catalog.xml")
  end
end

Testing with hiera

Hiera configuration is loaded by setting the config_dir parameter in rake task or using the -H, --hiera-config PATH switch.

require 'puppet-catalog-test'
require 'puppet-catalog-test/junit_xml_reporter'

namespace :catalog do
  PuppetCatalogTest::RakeTask.new(:all) do |t|
    t.module_paths = [File.join("modules")]
    t.manifest_path = File.join("scripts", "site.pp")
    t.config_dir = File.join("data") # expects hiera.yaml to be included in directory

    t.reporter = PuppetCatalogTest::JunitXmlReporter.new("puppet-vagrant-playground", "reports/puppet_catalog.xml")
  end
end
