Squad backend notes

Note: This is a feature of Fuego that is in prototype form. That is, this feature is currently under development, and may change as the code matures and is readied for production use. It is presented here now to allow for experimentation and feedback.

Introduction [edit section]

Normally, Fuego stores test results on the test host (where Fuego is installed). These results can be queried and perused (browsed, examined, have visualizations presented) using a command line tool and via the Jenkins web interface.

However, it is also possible to send test results to a different backend service for management and processing there.

This page documents the use of Fuego with the 'Squad' results management backend.

Here are some notes on using Fuego with Squad:

Commit d6634b2 is an early implementation of ftc support for putting run data to squad.

More debugging is needed and there are several FIXTHIS included, but it works.

Here are squad installation instructions for Ubuntu Xenial (16.04)

Squad installation [edit section]

Install squad server software [edit section]

  • Install squad server application (this is a Django application)

      host$ sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server
        [Note] this is required for squad to communicate with celery worker tasks
      host$ git clone https://github.com/Linaro/squad
      host$ cd squad/
      host$ mkvirtualenv --python=/usr/bin/python3.5  mysquad
      (mysquad) host$ pip3 install -r requirements-dev.txt
      (mysquad) host$ ./manage.py test
      (mysquad) host$ ./manage.py migrate
      (mysquad) host$ ./manage.py createsuperuser
      (mysquad) host$ ./manage.py runserver

If that doesn't work, try the following:

      host$ mkvirtualenv --python=/usr/bin/python3.5  pipsquad
      (pipsquad) host$ ./manage.py migrate
      (pipsquad) host$ ./manage.py createsuperuser
      (pipsquad) host$ ./manage.py runserver

And if that doesn't work, you can install it on your host by following the instructions at: https://squad.readthedocs.io/en/latest/quickstart.html

To stop the server, type ctrl-C in the terminal where squad is running:

  • (pipsquad) host$ ctrl-C

To exit the virtual environment:

     * (pipsquad) host$ deactivate
     * host$

Starting squad after initial installation [edit section]

[Note] The next time you use Squad, do this:

      host$ cd squad
      host$ workon squad
      host$ ./manage.py runserver

Configuring Squad [edit section]
