Bug Description

In havana it was possible to do this though some tests that require admin are not skipped. On master you can't even do 'testr list-tests' without correct admin creds. This is because the OfficialClientManager tries to create network and object clients with admin credentials. I'm not sure of the best way to fix this. Here is the backtrace, generated from nose because testr gives you no information on import failures:

nosetests -v tempest/scenario/
Failure: Unauthorized (Could not find project, admi. (HTTP 401)) ... ERROR

There is a qa spec for fixing this. That spec should be modified/approved and be the basis for fixing this.

Is this bug still an issue? As part of test accounts bp in juno a great deal of effort was done to fix some of these problems. Have you tried running without admin enabled and without tenant isolation turned on. If there are still failures I think each incident should be a specific bug for the test which is implicitly requiring admin.

I tried this and there are many problems. Using test accounts gets failures and then it seems credentials are not returned always as I start getting errors about not enough users even though running serially without tenant_isolation. If not using test accounts, and not setting admin users away from None, things fail very quickly because an InvalidConfiguration is raised and the admin skip code is expecting NotImplemented.

What are the exact settings in tempest.conf that are expected to work here?

David Kranz (david-kranz) wrote :

I started debugging with all admin setting as None in tempest.conf and no tenant isolation. The biggest problem right off the bat is that there is inconsistency between the kinds of exceptions that are raised in different places that are encountered in the various ways we check for admin creds. Some of those places know they are checking admin creds and some are generic, usually raising ConfigurationError. The admin skip places are looking for NotImplementedError.

In any event we should be changing the try/except logic to check for admin with explicit use of is_admin_available.

    Fix missing exception catch in is_admin_available()

    This commit adds a missing exception catch in the is_admin_available()
    method. When non-locking test accounts are used and no admin creds are
    available an InvalidConfiguration exception is raised instead of the
    NotImplemented exception raised by the locking test accounts provider.

Is this issue still actual?

This bug is old and nobody has commented out on it for a while. Credential providers have changed in Tempest since then. I'm marking this bug as incomplete. Please feel free to add more information and re-open it if you still think is a bug.

As Castulo mentioned, this bug is *really*, really old and I don't think it will be affecting Tempest at all.
