The goal of this project is to create video tutorial describing configuration of SUSE Manager for Retail.
There is a precise documentation describing every step of its configuration, but SUSE Manager for Retail is still a very complex piece of software and there is a lot of things to be configured configured properly (proxy configuration, Kiwi image building, DNS, DHCP, etc.) in specific order to get it finally working.
Currently, the SUMA test-suite takes about 6 hours to complete, often fails in the first tests, which set up the environment for the rest of the tests, those tests are what we named "core features".
To solve this problem we had planned to move from Jenkins Job to a Jenkins Pipeline, having stages to split the test suite into core features, initialize clients, secondary features. So,if one stage fails, the rest of the stages will not be executed.
Uyuni is the upstream community project from which the very popular SUSE Manager is derived. It uses its own QE test suite wirtten in Cucumber and Ruby. Currently the Uyuni test suite runs with Ruby 2.5.9 which is EOL since 2021. This is because the most current Ruby version for openSUSE Leap 15.4, which the test suite controller runs on, is still Ruby 2.5.9. Updating the Ruby version allows us to modernize the test suite code base and to use more recent Ruby gems that do not support the old Ruby version anymore.
