Running the tests

Run these tests from the project dts_test_project, it comes prepacked with the correct settings file and extra apps to enable tests to ensure different apps can exist in SHARED_APPS and TENANT_APPS.

./manage.py test tenant_schemas.tests

To run the test suite outsite of your application you can use tox to test all supported Django versions.


Updating your app’s tests to work with tenant-schemas

Because django will not create tenants for you during your tests, we have packed some custom test cases and other utilities. If you want a test to happen at any of the tenant’s domain, you can use the test case TenantTestCase. It will automatically create a tenant for you, set the connection’s schema to tenant’s schema and make it available at self.tenant. We have also included a TenantRequestFactory and a TenantClient so that your requests will all take place at the tenant’s domain automatically. Here’s an example

from tenant_schemas.test.cases import TenantTestCase
from tenant_schemas.test.client import TenantClient

class BaseSetup(TenantTestCase):
    def setUp(self):
        self.c = TenantClient(self.tenant)

    def test_user_profile_view(self):
        response = self.c.get(reverse('user_profile'))
        self.assertEqual(response.status_code, 200)

Running tests faster

Using the TenantTestCase can make running your tests really slow quite early in your project. This is due to the fact that it drops, recreates the test schema and runs migrations for every TenantTestCase you have. If you want to gain speed, there’s a FastTenantTestCase where the test schema will be created and migrations ran only one time. The gain in speed is noticiable but be aware that by using this you will be perpertraiting state between your test cases, please make sure your they wont be affected by this.

Running tests using TenantTestCase can start being a bottleneck once the number of tests grow. If you do not care that the state between tests is kept, an alternative is to use the class FastTenantTestCase. Unlike TenantTestCase, the test schema and its migrations will only be created and ran once. This is a significant improvement in speed coming at the cost of shared state.
