README - Quickstart

This folder contains the functional tests and automation of specification examples. Details about testing can be found in /docs-internal/testing/index.rst.

Setting up your Rhodecode Enterprise instance

The tests will create users and repositories as needed, so you can start with a new and empty instance.

Use the following example call for the database setup of Enterprise:

paster setup-rhodecode \
  --user=admin \
  --email=admin@example.com \
  --password=secret \
  --api-key=9999999999999999999999999999999999999999 \

This way the username, password, and auth token of the admin user will match the defaults from the test run.


  1. Make sure your Rhodecode Enterprise instance is running at http://localhost:5000.

  2. Enter nix-shell from the acceptance_tests folder:

    cd acceptance_tests

    Make sure that rcpkgs and rcnixpkgs are available on the nix path.

  3. Run the tests:

    py.test -c example.ini -vs

    The parameter -vs allows you to see debugging output during the test run. Check py.test --help and the documentation at http://pytest.org to learn all details about the test runner.
