ipa-run-tests is a wrapper around Pytest that run the FreeIPA test suite. It is intended to be used for developer testing and in continuous integration systems.

It is possible to select a subset of the entire test suite by specifying a test file relative to the ipatests package, for example:

ipa-run-tests test_integration/


All command-line options are passed to the underlying Pytest runner. See "pytest --help" for a complete list.


Running pytest can result in six different exit codes: Exit code 0: All tests were collected and passed successfully Exit code 1: Tests were collected and run but some of the tests failed Exit code 2: Test execution was interrupted by the user Exit code 3: Internal error happened while executing tests Exit code 4: pytest command line usage error Exit code 5: No tests were collected


Please see ipa-test-config(1) for a description of configuration environment variables.
