Kubernetes Testing Cookbook

Deploy your own conformance toolchain

At the time of writing, the CI description file is hosted in Functest and only runs the containers selected by Anuket RC2. It will be completed by the next Anuket mandatory test cases and then a new CI description file will be proposed in a shared tree.

Xtesting CI only requires internet access, GNU/Linux as Operating System and asks for a few dependencies as described in Deploy your own Xtesting CI/CD toolchains:

  • python-virtualenv

  • git

Please note the next two points depending on the GNU/Linux distributions and the network settings:

  • SELinux: you may have to add –system-site-packages when creating the virtualenv (“Aborting, target uses selinux but python bindings (libselinux-python) aren’t installed!”)

  • Proxy: you may set your proxy in env for Ansible and in systemd for Docker https://docs.docker.com/config/daemon/systemd/#httphttps-proxy

To deploy your own CI toolchain running Anuket Compliance:

virtualenv functest-kubernetes --system-site-packages
. functest-kubernetes/bin/activate
pip install ansible
ansible-galaxy install collivier.xtesting
ansible-galaxy collection install ansible.posix community.general community.grafana kubernetes.core community.docker community.postgresql
git clone https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/functest-kubernetes functest-kubernetes-src
(cd functest-kubernetes-src && git checkout -b stable/v1.23 origin/stable/v1.23)
ansible-playbook functest-kubernetes-src/ansible/site.cntt.yml

Configure Kubernetes API testing

Place the kubeconfig configuration file corresponding to the Kubernetes cluster under test in the following location on the machine running the cookbook:


Run Kubernetes conformance suite

Open in a web browser, login as admin/admin and click on “Build with Parameters” (keep the default values).

If the System under test (SUT) is Anuket compliant, a link to the full archive containing all test results and artifacts will be printed in functest-kubernetes-v1.23-zip’s console. Be free to download it and then to send it to any reviewer committee.

To clean your working dir:

rm -rf functest-kubernetes-src functest-kubernetes
