Conftest helps you write tests against structured configuration data. Using Conftest you can write tests for your Kubernetes configuration, Tekton pipeline definitions, Terraform code, Serverless configs or any other config files.

Conftest uses the Rego language from Open Policy Agent for writing the assertions. You can read more about Rego in How do I write policies in the Open Policy Agent documentation.

Here's a quick example. Save the following as policy/deployment.rego:

package main

deny[msg] {
  input.kind == "Deployment"
  not input.spec.template.spec.securityContext.runAsNonRoot

  msg := "Containers must not run as root"

deny[msg] {
  input.kind == "Deployment"

  msg := "Containers must provide app label for pod selectors"

Assuming you have a Kubernetes deployment in deployment.yaml you can run Conftest like so:

$ conftest test deployment.yaml
FAIL - deployment.yaml - Containers must not run as root
FAIL - deployment.yaml - Containers must provide app label for pod selectors

2 tests, 0 passed, 0 warnings, 2 failures, 0 exceptions

Conftest isn't specific to Kubernetes. It will happily let you write tests for any configuration files in a variety of different formats. See the documentation for installation instructions and more details about the features.
