Run unit tests
Overview of tests
This command runs a set of tests defined in the Magento 2 code base. You can either run all tests or tests you select.
Whenever a not supported type is specified, the program terminates and lists all available types.
Following execution, a detailed report displays showing the test run and results.
Before you run this command, all of the following must be true:
Magento_Developermodule must be enabled. You can enable it as follows:
magento module:enable [--force] Magento_Developer
--forceoption only if it’s necessary.
Your system must be set up to run the desired tests.
For example, to run integration tests, you should copy
dev/tests/integration/etc/install-config-mysql.phpand modify it to suit your environment.
Log in to the Magento server as, or switch to, a user who has permissions to write to the Magento file system. One way to do this is to switch to the Magento file system owner.
If you use the bash shell, you can also use the following syntax to switch to the Magento file system owner and enter the command at the same time:
su <Magento file system owner> -s /bin/bash -c <command>
If the Magento file system owner does not allow logins you can do the following:
sudo -u <Magento file system owner> <command>
To run Magento commands from any directory, add
<your Magento install dir>/binto your system
Because shells have differing syntax, consult a reference like unix.stackexchange.com.
bash shell example for CentOS:
You can also run the commands in the following ways:
cd <your Magento install dir>/binand run them as
./magento <command name>
php <your Magento install dir>/bin/magento <command name>
<your Magento install dir> is a subdirectory of your web server's docroot. Need help locating the docroot? Click here.
