Bare Metal OpenQA

a project by algraf

Today OpenQA mostly runs on virtual machines, but it can get really tricky to find bugs triggered by real hardware. There are only few interfaces required to interact with a machine though: 1) HDMI<br>

openQA IDE

a project by coolo

There is a running gag built into openQA called interactive mode. It goes like this: "if you need the interactive mode, it's broken". The reason: the so called interactive mode is a collection of hacks - in theory making it possible to update needles in a running test. But in fact it's a UI desaster that almost never works. So the goal of this hackweek project is to get rid of it - and instead build a real control from the webui into the backend allowing tests to be written on the fly including needle creation/updates. Easy as that.

openQA Package Testing

a project by RBrownSUSE

openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal. But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?

openQA web UI improvements

a project by asmorodskyi

  1. currently when you navigate to Test Results page - it will load everything before show you the page. I plan to change this model into "load on demand" approach
  2. Test Details page currently show you thumbnails for all modules. Want to add expand/collapse functionality for thumbnails - by default you will not see them for passed modules. But you will have ability to expand them. Also I will add "Expand All"/"Collapse All"

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

Run openQA testsuites with MALLOC_CHECK_ and MALLOC_PERTURB_ variables set

an invention by michalnowak

MALLOC_CHECK_ and MALLOC_PERTURB_ variables are environmental variables which help identify problems with Glibc's malloc() allocations. I intend to set them "globally" for every process via /etc/environment file and see, if test suites behave in usual way, identify problems.

Add VirtualBox bootloader to openQA

an invention by michalnowak

In openQA we support various backends which are able to 'host' tests. 'svirt' - one of those backends - is so generic that it allows to conned to a virtualization host via SSH a perform shell commands directly. As VirtualBox has decent command line interface (especially VBoxManage command) it shouldn't be that hard to support VirtualBox in openQA's os-autoinst via svirt backend.

Make YaST Testing Independent of Keyboard Shortcuts

a project by shundhammer

Motivation / Problem

Right now, our QA team tests YaST with OpenQA very much based on keyboard shortcuts: Set the keyboard focus to the "User Name" input field with Alt-U, enter a user name, [Tab] to get to the next field, enter more text, finally Alt-N to activate the "Next" button.

Add a y2log viewer to openQA's WebUI

a project by cwh

Quite a big part of openQA is testing the installation of SUSE products. All of them are installed by YaST. So a big quantity of problems found during openQA testruns are YaST problems. To find out what has gone wrong during installation YaST developers need to download the tarball containing the logs, unpack it and find the y2log among many other log files. That makes it quite complicated to just have a quick view on a problem.

Playwright for openQA

a project by kraih

Project Description

This Hack Week i want to figure out how to best use Playwright to test Mojolicious applications like openQA in unit tests. Playwright is a (mostly better) alternative to Selenium for browser automation. I'd like to find a way to write entire unit tests in JavaScript, and have those run right next to existing Perl tests with the same test runner using Node Tap and the Test Anything Protocol.

Learn PostgreSQL advanced features

an idea by okurz


The PostgreSQL database implementation is an integral part of many important software stacks, most importantly for me openQA. I learned database "by doing" but never properly. Given that we recently had (again) an incident related to specific details of how a database behaves under load maybe it's time to learn more about PostgreSQL.
