Test Manager for Trac Plugin - The XML-RPC API


The TestManager plugin can be used programmatically to create and manage Test Catalogs, Test Cases and Test Plans, and to set the test execution verdicts of Test Cases in a plan.

This page describes the XML-RPC API, but there are alternatives:

  • A HTTP RESTful API, allowing you to remotely control your test artifacts by means of simple HTTP GET requests,
  • A Python API, allowing for a fine-grained control over any artifact, managing their life-cycle, listening to events, reacting to status changes and workflow transitions.

The Test Manager RPC API leverages the XmlRpcPlugin, which must be installed in Trac for you to be able to use the following API.

This API is present in the TestManager plugin since rel. 1.4.3.


The exported functions


createTestCatalog(parent_catalog_id, title, description)

Creates a new test catalog, in the parent catalog specified, with the specified title and description. To create a root catalog, specify as the parent catalog. Returns the generated object ID, or '-1' if an error occurs.


createTestCase(catalog_id, title, description)

Creates a new test case, in the catalog specified, with the specified title and description. Returns the generated object ID, or '-1' if an error occurs.


createTestPlan(catalog_id, name)

Creates a new test plan, on the catalog specified, with the specified name. Returns the generated object ID, or '-1' if an error occurs.


deleteTestObject(objtype, id)

Deletes the test object of the specified type identified by the given id. Returns True if successful, False otherwise.


modifyTestObject(objtype, id, attributes)

Modifies the test object of the specified type identified by the given id. Attributs is a dictionary object with the properties to change and their new values. For documentation about each test object's properties, refer to the Python API. Custom fields ARE supported. Returns True if successful, False otherwise.


setTestCaseStatus(testcase_id, plan_id, status)

Sets the test case status. Returns True if successful, False otherwise.


getTestCatalog(catalog_id)

Returns the catalog properties. The result is in the form, all strings: (wiki_page_name, title, description)


getTestCase(testcase_id [, plan_id])

Returns the test case properties. If plan_id is provided, also the status of the test case in the plan will be returned. Each result is in the form, all strings:

If plan_id is NOT provided:

(wiki_page_name, title, description)

If plan_id is provided:

(wiki_page_name, title, description, status)


getTestPlan(catalog_id, plan_id)

Returns the test plan properties. The result is in the form, all strings: (wiki_page_name, name)


listRootCatalogs()

Returns an iterator over the root catalogs. Each result is in the form, all strings: (test_catalog_id, wiki_page_name, title, description)


listSubCatalogs(catalog_id)

Returns an iterator over the direct sub-catalogs of the specified catalog. Each result is in the form, all strings: (test_catalog_id, wiki_page_name, title, description)


listTestPlans(catalog_id)

Returns a iterator over the test plans associated to the specified catalog. Each result is in the form, all strings: (testplan_id, name)


listTestCases(catalog_id [, plan_id])

Returns a iterator over the test cases directly in the specified catalog (no sub-catalogs). If plan_id is provided, also the status of the test case in the plan will be returned. Each result is in the form, all strings:

If plan_id is NOT provided:

(testcase_id, wiki_page_name, title, description)

If plan_id is provided:

(testcase_id, wiki_page_name, status)



Examples

This section presents a set of usage examples for this RPC API.

Just copy this code and paste into a file named rpc_example.py, adapt the initial URL to point to your server, port and project, and run it from a command line with python rpc_example.py.

import xmlrpclib 

#
# Remember to change the following URL with your information!!!
#
# For example: 
#
# trac_project_url = "http://anonymous@localhost:8000/my_test_project/rpc"
#
# trac_project_url = "http://user@yourserver:port/yourproject/rpc"
trac_project_url = "http://anonymous@localhost:8000/test01/rpc"

print ""
print "-------- Connecting to '%s'" % trac_project_url
print ""

server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy(trac_project_url)
