Bug Description

NoReverseMatch error occasionally happens in openstack_dashboard unit tests.
For example, NoReverseMatch: u'plugin_panel' is not a registered namespace inside 'horizon:admin'
This seems to depends on the order of tests executed.

Recent examples are:

Captured example is http://paste.openstack.org/show/739018/

In addition, horizon current unit test does not catch errors in template rendering.
This can be enabled by specifying debug=True in OPTIONS parameter in TEMPLATES.

Test order can be controlled by passing test modules directly to python manage.py test.

It turns out that the following command line reproduces this bug with 100%.

python manage.py test --settings=openstack_dashboard.test.settings --exclude-tag selenium --exclude-tag integration --verbosity 2 openstack_dashboard.test.unit openstack_dashboard.test.test_plugins openstack_dashboard.dashboards.identity.projects.tests

    UT: Run test_plugins as separate process

    This commit changes to run test_plugins in a separate process.

    test_plugins touches urlpatterns and Site registry during setUp(),
    but the cleanup process in tearDown does not recover urlpatterns correctly.
    After tests under test_plugins run, the urlpatterns continues to have
    entries of test panels and this leads to NoReverseMatch error when
    rendering other panels after that.

    I investigated details in setUp/tearDown of PluginTestCase but failed
    to find a good solution to recover urlpatterns and Horizon Site registry.
    As a workaround, runnig test_plugins in a separate process can avoid
    the issue.
