Bug Description


The unity js scopes package have a minimal set of tests associated with a few of the features exposed in the JS scopes api. Those tests need to be expanded.

This bug aims at adding a new test for the Scopes Department feature.

Technical context

Scopes are a fundamental piece of the UbuntuTouch user experience. Each scope offers user driven way to interact with one of more sources of either local or remote data displayed in a uniform fashion from the Ubuntu Dash.

The Unity Scopes API allows developers to create scopes in C++.

Unity JS scopes is a package that enables the creation of Javascript Scopes by offering bindings of the Unity Scopes API in Javascript.

In order to get started with the unity-js-scopes package, you can have a look at the README file found at the top of the package's sources:

In the context of the API, Departments are ways to group results from a search in various top level groups

Examples of department usage can be found in one of the sample scope provided by the unity-js-scopes package:

Existing tests for some parts of the scopes API can be found here:

The tests can be run with:

make test

Each tests contains a server part that feeds the desired data to the scope and the js scope itself


Add a test for department handling that tests the same functionalities found in the simple.js scope above and validates that no issues occur.
