Configuration

This topic was updated due to the 2.3.7 MFTF release.

The *.env file provides additional configuration for the Magento Functional Testing Framework (MFTF). To run the MFTF on your Magento testing instance, specify the basic configuration values. Advanced users can create custom configurations based on requirements and environment.

Basic configuration

These basic configuration values are required and must be set by the user before the MFTF can function correctly.

MAGENTO_BASE_URL

The root URL of the Magento application under test.

Example:

MAGENTO_BASE_URL=http://magento2.vagrant251

If the MAGENTO_BASE_URL contains a subdirectory (like http://magento.test/magento2ce), specify MAGENTO_CLI_COMMAND_PATH.

MAGENTO_BACKEND_NAME

The path to the Magento Admin page.

Example:

MAGENTO_BACKEND_NAME=admin_12346

MAGENTO_ADMIN_USERNAME

The username that tests can use to access the Magento Admin page

Example:

MAGENTO_ADMIN_USERNAME=admin

MAGENTO_ADMIN_PASSWORD

The password that tests will use to log in to the Magento Admin page.

Example:

MAGENTO_ADMIN_PASSWORD=1234reTyt%$7

Advanced configuration

Depending on the environment you use, you may need to configure the MFTF more precisely by setting more configuration parameters then for basic configuration. This section describes available configuration parameters and their default values (where applicable).

DEFAULT_TIMEZONE

Sets a default value for the timezone attribute of a generateDate action. This value is applied when a test step does not specify a time zone. For the complete list of available time zones, refer to List of Supported Timezones.

Default: America/Los_Angeles.

Example:

DEFAULT_TIMEZONE=UTC

SELENIUM

The SELENIUM_* values form the URL of a custom Selenium server for running testing.

Default Selenium URL: http://127.0.0.1:4444/wd/hub

And the default configuration:

SELENIUM_HOST=127.0.0.1
SELENIUM_PORT=4444
SELENIUM_PROTOCOL=http
SELENIUM_PATH=/wd/hub

SELENIUM_* values are required if you are running Selenium on an external system. If you change the configuration of the external Selenium server, you must update these values.

SELENIUM_HOST

Override the default Selenium server host.

Example:

SELENIUM_HOST=user:pass@ondemand.saucelabs.com

SELENIUM_PORT

Override the default Selenium server port.

Example:

SELENIUM_PORT=443

SELENIUM_PROTOCOL

Override the default Selenium server protocol.

Example:

SELENIUM_PROTOCOL=https

SELENIUM_PATH

Override the default Selenium server path.

Example:

SELENIUM_PATH=/wd/hub

MAGENTO_RESTAPI

These MAGENTO_RESTAPI_* values are optional and can be used in cases when your Magento instance has a different API path than the one in MAGENTO_BASE_URL.

MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_HOST
MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_PORT

MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_HOST

The protocol and the host of the REST API server path.

Example:

MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_HOST=http://localhost

MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_PORT

The port part of the API path.

Example:

MAGENTO_RESTAPI_SERVER_PORT=5000

*_BP

Settings to override base paths for the framework. You can use it when the MFTF is applied as a separate tool. For example, when you need to place the MFTF and the Magento codebase in separate projects.

MAGENTO_BP
TESTS_BP
FW_BP
TESTS_MODULES_PATH

MAGENTO_BP

The path to a local Magento codebase. It enables the bin/mftf commands such as run and generate to parse all modules of the Magento codebase for MFTF tests.

MAGENTO_BP=~/magento2/

TESTS_BP

BP is an acronym for Base Path. The path to where MFTF supplementary files are located in the Magento codebase.

Example:

TESTS_BP=~/magento2ce/dev/tests/acceptance

FW_BP

The path to MFTF. FW_BP is an acronym for FrameWork Base Path.

Example:

FW_BP=~/magento/magento2-functional-testing-framework

TESTS_MODULE_PATH

The path to where the MFTF modules mirror Magento modules.

Example:

TESTS_MODULE_PATH=~/magento2/dev/tests/acceptance/tests/functional/Magento/FunctionalTest

MODULE_WHITELIST

Use for a new module. When adding a new directory at Magento/FunctionalTest, add the directory name to MODULE_WHITELIST to enable the MFTF to process it.

Example:

MODULE_WHITELIST=Magento_Framework,Magento_ConfigurableProductWishlist,Magento_ConfigurableProductCatalogSearch

MAGENTO_CLI_COMMAND_PATH

Path to the Magento CLI command entry point.

Default: dev/tests/acceptance/utils/command.php. It points to MAGENTO_BASE_URL + dev/tests/acceptance/utils/command.php

Modify the default value:

  • for non-default Magento installation
  • when use a subdirectory in the MAGENTO_BASE_URL

Example: dev/tests/acceptance/utils/command.php

BROWSER

Override the default browser performing the tests.

Default: Chrome

Example:

BROWSER=firefox
