Promise installation and configuration

1. Manual testing

1.1. Promise installation

Install nodejs, npm and promise

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
sudo npm -g install npm@latest
git clone
cd promise/source
npm install

Please note that the last command ‘npm install’ will install all needed dependencies for promise (including yangforge and mocha)


1.2. Validation

Please perform the following preparation steps:

  1. Set OpenStack environment parameters properly (e.g. source openrc admin demo in DevStack)
  2. Create OpenStack tenant (e.g. promise) and tenant user (e.g. promiser)
  3. Create a flavor in Nova with 1 vCPU and 512 MB RAM
  4. Create a private network, subnet and router in Neutron
  5. Create an image in Glance

Once done, the promise test script can be invoked as follows (as a single line command):

NODE_ENV=mytest \
OS_TENANT_NAME=promise \
OS_USERNAME=promiser \
OS_PASSWORD=<user password from Step 2> \
OS_TEST_FLAVOR=<flavor ID from Step 3> \
OS_TEST_NETWORK=<network ID from Step 4> \
OS_TEST_IMAGE=<image ID from Step 5> \
npm run -s test -- --reporter json > promise-results.json

The results of the tests will be stored in the promise-results.json file.

The results can also be seen in the console (“npm run -s test”)


All 33 tests passing?! Congratulations, promise has been successfully installed and configured.
