### Postgres

Make sure that you have enabled building of postgres test in CMake.
`cmake -DENABLE_PGTEST=ON ..`

To test the postgres provider you will need to have a database available to
which the postgres provider can connect. This will need to have postgis support
enabled and be available as a service called `qgis_test` on the machine you run
the tests on.
which the postgres provider can connect. The server will need to have postgis
support enabled.
By default the test uses the following connection options:
dbname='qgis_test'
host=localhost
port=5432
user='postgres'
password='postgres'

If this does not match your setup you can set the environment variable
QGIS_PGTEST_DB to the desired connection string.

Please note that the database needs to be initialized using the sql-script
tests/testdata/provider/testdata.sql
It takes care of activating postgis for the test database and
creates some tables containing test data.
