Enhanced Test Results Web Report

Put the Description of the test into the results tab. Looking at many very similar tests having the Description can make it so much easier.

 

And on a failed test, particularly one where values are compared. Show the value found. This is a standard feature of Junit where it shows both expected and actual values. Right now you show only expected value in the report.

Enable/Disable attributes or anything that is being checked.

We create users for testing different things. At one point we were getting an error on the creation so we had to back out the attributes one by one and then re-add. It would be a huge help to be able to just disable them. Same with if you are "Asserting attributes and Values in eDirectory" if you have several items here you can enable/disables items.

Make test suite a Designer Package for drivers

There are test suites that show off the various connectors. However, each driver NetIQ ships should have an Add On Package that has a DirXML-Resource with a text/json or maybe json/validator DirXML-ContentType that stores the test suite,

Then just as you can read the connectors out of the IDV, also look for DirXMl-Resources whose DirXML-ContentType is validator/json and read them back and import the test suite. Buffer... more »

Assert LDAP Filter is true/not true

We have a case, where we have Sendmail objects that have an attribute, serialNumber, we can query on via LDAP. This would return a list of 1-N objects back.

I do not think we can do multivalued local variables, nor loop over them, but we need to

1) Ensure they are all deleted.
2) Ensure that at least 1 or more are created.

This seems like a new assertion of LDAP Filter returns, with sub options of:
0-n values... more »

Add Xpath Assertion Actions

It would be nice to have actions that allow you to perform assertions on Xpath results without first setting a variable.

I know you can run "Use XPath and Set Variable", then do an assertion on that variable. However, "Assert XPath Results Contains" and "Assert XPath Results Not Contains" would be very useful, by which you could specify an Xpath expression and do an assertion all in one step.

Use case: I make a SOAP... more »

Store test suite in attribute, deliver in Package.

If test coverage for default driver config can be developed, consider a mode of storing the Validator config in an eDir object (DirXML-Resource class, with DirXML-ContentType=mime/Validator-test-suite) so that when you import drivers from Vault in Validator, you also get a default test suite. Would allow developers to ship drivers with test suites included.

Include ECMA Script functions from drivers

This idea came up in some discussions at Brainshare.

 

The concept would be to be able to import ECMA scripts from drivers and then have those functions available in an Action for a validator test. So you could pass in variables to an ECMA/javascript script, get the result and assign it to another variable.

 

Additionally, we could just allow a javascript action so javascript could be included in any test.

Integrate Analyzer

The Analyzer product seems to not be used much even though everybody that has access to the Advanced Edition has a license for it. It would be great to tie the existing connections that validator has and allow analyzer to take that connection information and connect to the various connections.

Or it would be great to tie in new functionality into validator that would perform the Analyzer functionality. Compare values... more »
