Chefspec and yum


#1

Is there a way to to write a chef spec assertion to see if the repo will be created? Here is my default.rb:

yum_repository “x2go” do
repo_name "x2go"
description "x2go (replaces NX)"
url "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6/"
key "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6/repodata/repomd.xml.key"
action :add
end

And here is my current chef spec at this point:

require ‘chefspec’

describe ‘x2go::default’ do
let(:chef_run) {
ChefSpec::ChefRunner.new(:step_into => [‘yum_repository’]).converge ‘x2go::default’
}

it ‘should create a repo if it does not exists’ do
chef_run.converge "x2go::default"
expect(chef_run).to create_file(“x2go”)
end
end

Doesn’t work, which is probably because “create_file” is used with the “file” resource, not yum_repository LWRP.

It doesn’t look like chef spec supports the yum_repository LWRP (or at least that I can see), so I am not sure what direction I should take from here. What approach should I take?

I don’t believe there is a matcher for it. However, you should be able to assert the LWRP syntax via #find_resource.
We do similar with some keystone tests.

Thanks, Dewey! That got it working. Here is the first iteration, sort of copied from Dewey’s example:

before do
@chef_run = ::ChefSpec::ChefRunner.new.converge 'x2go::default’
end

it ‘should create a repo if it does not exists’ do

resource = @chef_run.find_resource("yum_repository", "x2go").to_hash

expect(resource).to include(
  :repo_name => 'x2go',
  :description => 'x2go (replaces NX)',
  :url => "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6",
  :key => "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6/repodata/repomd.xml.key",
 :action => [:add]
)

end

Because I don’t want to completely copy other people’s code, here is my version:

let(:chef_run) {
ChefSpec::ChefRunner.new.converge ‘x2go::default’
}

it ‘should create a repo if it does not exists’ do

expect(chef_run.find_resource('yum_repository','x2go').to_hash).to include(
  :repo_name => 'x2go',
  :description => 'x2go (replaces NX)',
  :url => "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6",
  :key => "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop:/x2go/RHEL_6/repodata/repomd.xml.key",
  :action => [:add]
)

end

you should be able to assert on the file also, because you are stepping
inside the yum_repository resource, chefspec should evaluate the provider.
yum_repository provider uses a template [1], you should be able to assert
using standard expect(runner).to create_file(’/etc/yum.repos.d/something’)
also,.
