Report 2 Bugs in Sahana Eden

Explore either the The Sahana Eden Demo Site or a local instance of Sahana Eden as see if you can find any bugs. Report them following http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BugReportingGuidelines

Report 2 Bugs in Sahana Eden for Hurricane Sandy Response

Test the http://sandyrelieftest.sahanafoundation.org/ (you will need to register and wait for approval). Review Deployments/Sandy/Occupy for a better understanding of what this site is used for. Report them following http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BugReportingGuidelines and add the sandy keyword.

Report 2 Bugs in Sahana Eden for Red Cross

Test your local instance of Sahana Eden with the IFRC (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies) deployment setting & . In models/000_config.py set:

settings.base.template = "IFRC"
...
# Over-rides to the Template may be done here
settings.base.prepopulate = ["IFRC_Train"]

Do this before first running Sahana Eden - or delete the contents of your databases/, cache/, and sessions/ folders to force Sahana Eden to prepopulate again. There will be an administrator account generated automatically: admin@example.com password: testing. Report them following http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BugReportingGuidelines and add the keyword IFRC.

Review Open Tickets in Sahana Eden's Bug Tracker

We want to find out if old bug reports and old feature requests are still relevant.

  1. Select a ticket from the list of [report/1 Active Tickets] that hasn't been reviewed already during GCI 2012, and wasn't reported during GCI 2012.
  2. Review that the the bug that it describes still occurs, or that the feature that it describes has not been implemented and is still relevant.
  3. Update the ticket:
    1. If the description is unclear, add a better description.
    2. If there are several issues in the ticket, say which ones are still broken.
    3. Get screenshots if they're useful.
    4. Add anything else you think would be helpful.
    5. Add "Reviewed for GCI" so people know this one is done.

Write Manual Test Cases for a Sahana Eden Module

Write up the steps to perform the user tasks in the module, automate the tests using Selenium IDE, provide test data where useful. Document the User's workflows as test cases in the Sahana Eden Tests spreadsheet (Test Scripts sheet). Include any test data you use. You should test as much of the functionality as possible.

Intermediate

Create An Automated Tests for a Test Scripts from the Sahana Eden Tests Spreadsheet

Find 2 test cases in the Sahana Eden Tests spreadsheet (Test Scripts sheet) which have not been automated and create automated tests for them. Also check in the eden/modules/tests/<module>/ folder to see if there are any automated tests created. Follow the instructions on DeveloperGuidelines/Testing. Update the spreadsheet with the status, your initials or name and date.

Complete an Automated Tests for a Sahana Eden Module

The following Tests have been started, but have not yet been completed. These have been written, but the syntax used in these tests is not corrected and needs to be fixed. You will need to used selenium commands to select elements to run the tests instead of the create function in eden/modules/tests/web2unittests.py. Follow the instructions on DeveloperGuidelines/Testing to complete these tests, ensure that they run correctly and add them to the suite.

Create a Generic Test Function for Search Tests

Currently the Sahana test framework has a create function in eden/modules/tests/web2unittests.py which makes it simple to write tests for creating records. A similar function could be written for the Search Function: This would do the following:

  • Have parameters for:
    • The search query -- which fields to search on and their values.
      • Look at the create function's data parameter. It has additional information about the form. Do you need anything like that? Could you use the same format for your parameter?
      • Would it make sense to share any code with create?
    • The expected results. It is sufficient to just test that the right number of records are returned and give a list of the first n (determined in test case) values in a specific sorted column.
      • You may want tests that return no results, or one result, or multiple results. What would be a good way to pass in the expected results?
  • Fill the search criteria in the advanced search form.
  • Execute the search.
  • Check that the results are exactly as given.
  • If feasible, extend this to also test simple search.
    • Can you use the same data to test the simple search form?
    • Does the caller need to tell you which field the simple search uses?
  • Think about what code could be shared between your search function, the create function, and the report function task below.

Test this function in at least one test script.

Create a Generic Test Function for Report Tests

Currently the Sahana test framework has a create function in eden/modules/tests/web2unittests.py which makes it simple to write tests for creating records. A similar function could be written for the Report Function. Ideally this would re-use features from / share code with the search helper described above -- it would be good to read that description. Because of this dependency, it might be better if this is done after search. Note for GCI: It's ok to claim this task if someone is working on search, and get a start on it. The report helper would do the following:

  • Have parameters for:
    • The search query -- which fields to search on and their values. (See the description of parameters for the search helper above.)
    • The report options.
    • The expected results. This doesn't have to be all of the results - just the number of rows and columns (and perhaps optionally the values?) and specified cells in the report table.
  • Fill the search criteria in advanced form for the report.
  • Fill the report options.
  • Generate the report.
  • Check that the results are exactly as given.
  • If feasible, extend this to also test the simple report.
    • Can you use the same data to test the simple report form?
    • Does the caller need to tell you which field the simple report uses?
  • Think about what code could be shared between your report function, the create function, and the search function task above.

Test this function in at least one test script.
