When looking to setup XPasses in a test suite. When looking how to do this could only find skipping/xfail and the TOC doesnt have it.

Here's a quick checklist in what to include:

  • Include a detailed description of the bug or suggestion
  • pip list of the virtual environment you are using
  • pytest and operating system versions
  • Minimal example if possible

There's nothing to set up - xpass simply means a test marked as xfail (expected to fail) did unexpectedly pass.

The skipping/xfail docs briefly mention that:

Instead terminal reporting will list it in the “expected to fail” (XFAIL) or “unexpectedly passing” (XPASS) sections.

I'm not sure what else we could add to make this more clear - do you have an idea?

I believe @AutomatedTester was specifically looking for a way to report XPasses in the summary. The documentation currently mentions including skips and xfails with -rsx but does not mention XPasses, which would be shown by using rsxX or even -ra. It's also not made clear that imperative xfails could never xpass - it was his understanding that they could.

I guess this can be closed, @RonnyPfannschmidt @nicoddemus ?
