pytest doesnt respect __test__ = False on script_tests metaclass created methods
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When pytest is used on the tests, it fails on scripts_tests test_version (help & simulate), where it should have skipped them.

According to it supports __test__ attribute on modules/classes/functions . It doesnt mention supporting methods.

Event Timeline

I don't think the problem is the __test__. According to the code in script_tests unrunnable_script_list has two files that set __test__ - version and script_wui.

Without dct[test_name] = unittest.expectedFailure(dct[test_name]), script_wui is skipped because of xfail:

$ python -m pytest -vvv -k "TestScriptHelp and test_script_wui or TestScriptHelp and test_version"

collected 2146 items 

tests/ <- ../../../../../usr/lib/python2.7/unittest/ xfail
tests/ FAILED

But they are not supposed to be run at all, if __test__ is False.

script_wui is listed in lots of "failure lists" in that test module, including the script_deps, and no_args_expected_results, so it is not surprising that it shows up as xfail for some other reason.

Yeah, You're right. It should not even be collected.

I also made this simpler testcase to test this out:

import unittest

def test_abc():

def test_abc_not_run():

test_abc_not_run.__test__ = False

class ClassTest(unittest.TestCase):
    def test_class_abc(self):

class NotRunClassTest(unittest.TestCase):
    __test__ = False

    def test_class_abc_not_run(self):

class ClassMeta(type):

    def __new__(cls, name, bases, dct):
        for name in ['abc', 'abc_not_run']:
            test_name = 'test_metaclass_' + name
            dct[test_name] = lambda self: None
            dct[test_name].__name__ = test_name

        dct['test_metaclass_abc_not_run'].__test__ = False
        return super(ClassMeta, cls).__new__(cls, name, bases, dct)

class ClassMetaTest(unittest.TestCase):
    __metaclass__ = ClassMeta

And I used the conftest:

def pytest_runtest_setup(item):
    print '    __test__ for', item, "is", getattr(item._obj, '__test__', None)

Results got:

$ py.test --capture=no -vvv

    __test__ for <TestCaseFunction 'test_class_abc'> is None
