We are using application or wrapper coobook to encapsulate all needed
functionality for specific app.
Let’s say we have “mywebapp” cookbook that depends on community "apache2"
When we running minitest-handler for “mywebapp” it executes apache2
minitest tests along with, usually it’s ok but for this specific cookbook
tests appear to be broken for a long time (including pending pull requests
The question is how can we skip specific tests until they fixed because we
rely on integration tests in our CI process.
We’ve tried setting attribute:
node.default[:minitest][:filter] = ‘/^((?!apache2).)*$/’
for “minitest-handler” cookbook, but it keeps loading apache2 minitests.
Alternatively we can can change attribute from default
node.default[:minitest][:tests] = ‘**/*_test.rb’
to custom pattern
node.default[:minitest][:tests] = ‘**/*_acme_corporation_test.rb’
but this will disable all 3rd party tests which is not preferable solution
as they add significant coverage.
