Django plugin for Kiwi TCMS

We're happy to announce the initial release of kiwitcms-django-plugin! This package allows you execute your Django test suite and report the results into Kiwi TCMS! This plugin has been developed by contributor Bryan Mutai as part of our open source bounty program.

To install:

pip install kiwitcms-django-plugin

and then in your settings.py specify:

TEST_RUNNER = 'tcms_django_plugin.TestRunner'

This plugin needs the ~/.tcms.conf configuration file:

[tcms]
url = https://tcms.server/xml-rpc/
username = your-username
password = your-password

Product information and how to report can be controlled via environment variables which are documented here. Example results from the plugin's own test suite are reported in TP-296!

Happy testing!

We are happy to announce that versioned releases of Kiwi TCMS container images are now available to customers with an active enterprise subscription.

For a long time our release policy has been to push only latest version of our upstream kiwitcms/kiwi containers. This upstream channel doesn't carry version tags and receives versioned releases only when there are backwards incompatible database migrations! This proved challenging to administrators who don't upgrade immediately to the latest version as soon as it comes out.

For example this happens in environments where admins use the upstream images as proof of concept and later switch to a production grade installation. Quite often they migrate to the Kiwi TCMS Enterprise containers during the same time.

Starting today versioned releases of Kiwi TCMS (single tenant) will be available via the mrsenko/kiwitcms private repository on Docker Hub. This repository includes tagged versions of the same docker images coming from the kiwitcms/kiwi channel! Access is granted automatically to all existing enterprise subscribers!

Kiwi TCMS 8.4

We're happy to announce Kiwi TCMS version 8.4!

IMPORTANT: this is a medium sized release which includes minor security fixes, many improvements & bug-fixes and translations in several new languages. It is the second release to include contributions via our open source bounty program. You can explore everything at https://public.tenant.kiwitcms.org!

Supported upgrade paths:

5.3   (or older) -> 5.3.1
5.3.1 (or newer) -> 6.0.1
6.0.1            -> 6.1
6.1              -> 6.1.1
6.1.1            -> 6.2 (or newer)

Important

Starting from v8.4 all supported bug trackers now feature 1-click bug report integration! Here's an example of how they look like for GitHub and JIRA:


Note

Some external bug trackers like Bugzilla & JIRA provide more flexibility over which fields are required for a new bug report. The current functionality should work for vanilla installations and would fall back to manual bug reporting if it can't create a new bug automatically!

Database

  • Force creation of missing permissions for m2m fields from the tcms.bugs app:
    • bugs.add_bug_tags
    • bugs.change_bug_tags
    • bugs.delete_bug_tags
    • bugs.view_bug_tags
    • bugs.add_bug_executions
    • bugs.change_bug_execution
    • bugs.delete_bug_execution
    • bugs.view_bug_executions

Warning

TCMS admins of existing installations will have to assign these by hand to users/groups who will be allowed to change tags on bugs!

Settings

  • Define the KIWI_DISABLE_BUGTRACKER=yes environment variable if you wish to disable the internal bug tracker. Closes Issue #1370

Bug fixes

  • Workaround missing MariaDB CHARSET/COLLATION support, see our docker-compose.yml. Fixes Issue #1700
  • Install missing /usr/bin/mysql in container
  • Warning message for unconfigured Kiwi TCMS domain does not show HTML tags in Admin anymore. Fixes Issue #964
  • Unescape the & string when trying to open new windows after clicking the 'Report bug' button in TestExecution. Fixes Issue #1533
  • Try harder to restore the original navigation menu instead of leaving bogus menu items. Fixes Issue #991
  • Robot Framework plugin is now GA. Close Issue #984
  • Add LinkReference to TestExecution after creating bug via 1-click. The UI still needs to be refreshed which will be implemented together with the redesign of the TestRun page
  • Update documented signature for API method TestCase.add_component to match current behavior, see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/61648405/

Happy testing!

We're happy to announce the initial release of kiwitcms-robotframework-plugin! This package allows you execute your Robot Framework test suite and report the results into Kiwi TCMS! This plugin is the brain child of our Luca Valentini and Aniello Barletta and has its roots in the Robot Framework Milano user-group.

To install:

pip install kiwitcms-robotframework-plugin

and then make use of it like so:

robot --listener zealand.listener.KiwiTCMS

The plugin needs the ~/.tcms.conf configuration file:

[tcms]
url = https://tcms.server/xml-rpc/
username = your-username
password = your-password

and you can also specify the ${plan_id}, ${product} and ${build_user_email} variables in your .robot files. If any of these are missing it will attempt to discover the necessary information from your environment. The exact behavior is documented here.

This plugin uses the upstream robotframework/WebDemo test suite with SeleniumLibrary in a combination with a downstream test with the OperatingSystem library. The results are reported in TP-290. For more information checkout our package repository on GitHub!

Changes since Kiwi TCMS 8.0

Security

  • JSON-RPC handler will now HTML escape all strings. This prevents XSS attacks via tags, components or anything else which is loaded on the web page via RPC and then shown as string. Even if someone saves <script>alert(123);</script> in the database the returned result will be HTML escaped and will not be executed as JavaScript!

    Notes:

    This is easy to exploit but people able to do so should have accounts in your Kiwi TCMS installation and write privileges on their accounts. If they do this means they can cause a lot more damage much more easily!

  • Update Django from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4 - fixes security issue CVE-2020-9402: Potential SQL injection via tolerance parameter in GIS functions and aggregates on Oracle which we believe does not affect Kiwi TCMS

Improvements

  • Update bleach from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1

  • Update django-colorfield from 0.1.15 to 0.2.1

  • Update markdown from 3.2 to 3.2.1

  • On bug creation send email to assignee. Fixes Issue #1154 (Mfon Eti-mfon)

  • Make it possible to provide override settings in a directory. Kiwi TCMS will respect:

    • local_settings.py
    • local_settings_dir/*.py

    For more information see https://kiwitcms.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing_docker.html#customization

  • Allow adding TestPlan to TestCase via UI. Fixes Issue #1021

  • Add visual representation of failures in TestCase health telemetry

  • Add helper text to TestExecutionStatus admin

  • Add link to discussion forum in Help menu

API

  • TestCase.create() method no longer accepts product or product_id fields which have previously been deprecated
  • API methods which receive True/False values will no longer parse yes,no,1,0 values. The only accepted values are boolean constants defined in the calling programming language which are then transmitted via XML-RPC or JSON-RPC and converted to native boolean on the backend

Bug fixes

  • The number of search results shown per page can now be controlled via DEFAULT_PAGE_SIZE setting, which is 100 by default. Fixes Issue #1210 (Ivailo Karabojkov)

GitHub Marketplace listing deprecation

As we've stated previously Kiwi TCMS has migrated to a new GitHub backend and OAuth tokens for the previous backend have been revoked and the existing listing on GitHub Marketplace is deprecated. It is a non-functioning app at the moment!

It is not possible for us to cancel Marketplace subscriptions programatically, that is GitHub does not provide such API. Active subscribers please follow these 3 steps to help us clean up stale information:

  • Go to https://github.com/marketplace/kiwi-tcms
  • From "Edit your plan" button at the top select your GitHub account
  • Then click "Cancel this plan" link which is at the left-hand side at the bottom of the description box!

How to upgrade

Backup first! If you are using Kiwi TCMS as a Docker container then:

cd path/containing/docker-compose/
docker-compose down
docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi
docker pull centos/mariadb-103-centos7
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate

WHERE: docker-compose.yml has been updated from your private git repository! The file provided in our GitHub repository is an example. Not for production use!

WARNING: kiwitcms/kiwi:latest and docker-compose.yml will always point to the latest available version! If you have to upgrade in steps, e.g. between several intermediate releases, you have to modify the above workflow:

# starting from an older Kiwi TCMS version
docker-compose down
docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version>
edit docker-compose.yml to use kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version>
docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate
# repeat until you have reached latest

Happy testing!

Kiwi TCMS 8.0

We're happy to announce Kiwi TCMS version 8.0!

IMPORTANT: this is a major release which includes important database and API changes, several improvements and bug fixes. Multiple API methods are now incompatible with older releases and extra caution needs to be applied when upgrading via docker-compose.yml because newer MariaDB versions are breaking direct upgrades from existing installations!

You can explore everything at https://public.tenant.kiwitcms.org!

Supported upgrade paths:

5.3   (or older) -> 5.3.1
5.3.1 (or newer) -> 6.0.1
6.0.1            -> 6.1
6.1              -> 6.1.1
6.1.1            -> 6.2 (or newer)

Changes since Kiwi TCMS 7.3

Improvements

  • Update Django from 3.0.2 to 3.0.3
  • Update django-grappelli from 2.13.3 to 2.14.1
  • Update markdown from 3.1.1 to 3.2
  • Update python-gitlab from 1.15.0 to 2.0.1
  • Update pygithub from 1.45 to 1.46
  • Allow customization of test execution statuses via admin. For more information see https://kiwitcms.readthedocs.io/en/latest/admin.html#test-execution-statuses. Fixes Issue #236
  • Add passing rate chart to Execution trends telemetry
  • Documentation updates (@Prome88)

Database

This release adds several migrations which alter the underlying database schema by renaming multiple columns.

WARNINGS:

  • SQLite has very poor capabilities for altering schema and it will break when run with existing database! If you had deployed Kiwi TCMS with SQLite for production purposes you will not be able to upgrade! We recommend switching to Postgres first and then upgrading!

  • docker-compose.yml has been updated from MariaDB 5.5 to MariaDB 10.3. The 10.x MariaDB containers change their datadir configuration from /var/lib/mysql to /var/lib/mysql/data! We recommend first upgrading your MariaDB version, using Kiwi TCMS 7.3 and afterwards upgrading to Kiwi TCMS 8.0:

    1. Backup existing database with:

      docker exec -it kiwi_db mysqldump -u kiwi -pYourPass kiwi > backup.sql
      
    2. docker-compose down

    3. docker volume rm kiwi_db_data - will remove existing data volume b/c of incompatibilities between different MariaDB versions

    4. docker-compose up - will recreate data volume with missing data. e.g. manage.py showmigrations will report that 0 migrations have been applied.

    5. Restore the data from backup:

      cat backup.sql | docker exec -u 0 -i kiwi_db /opt/rh/rh-mariadb103/root/usr/bin/mysql kiwi
      

      note: This connects to the database as the root user

    6. Proceed to upgrade your Kiwi TCMS container !

CHANGES:

  • Remove model fields of type AutoField. They are a legacy construct and shouldn't be specified in the source code! Django knows how to add them dynamically. These are:
    • Tag.id
    • TestCaseStatus.id
    • Category.id
    • PlanType.id
    • TestExecutionStatus.id
  • Remove db_column attribute from model fields
  • Rename several primary key fields to id:
    • Build.build_id -> Build.id
    • TestRun.run_id -> TestRun.id
    • TestPlan.plan_id -> TestPlan.id
    • TestCase.case_id -> TestCase.id
    • TestExecution.case_run_id -> TestExecution.id

API

WARNING:

The database schema changes mentioned above affect multiple API methods in a backwards incompatible way! There is possibility that your API scripts will also be affected. You will have to adjust those to use the new field names where necessary!

CHANGES:

  • Methods Build.create(), Build.filter() and Build.update() will return id instead of build_id field
  • Method TestRun.get_cases() will return execution_id instead of case_run_id field and id instead of case_id field
  • Methods TestRun.add_case(), TestExecution.create(), TestExecution.filter() and TestExecution.update() will return id instead of case_run_id field
  • Methods TestRun.create(), TestRun.filter(), TestRun.update() will return id instead of run_id field
  • Methods TestPlan.create(), TestPlan.filter() and TestPlan.update() will return id instead of plan_id field
  • Methods TestCase.add_component(), TestCase.create(), TestCase.filter() and TestCase.update() will return id instead of case_id field

NOTES:

Kiwi TCMS automation framework plugins have been updated to work with the newest API. At the time of Kiwi TCMS v8.0 release their versions are:

  • kiwitcms-tap-plugin v8.0.1
  • kiwitcms-junit.xml-plugin v8.0.1
  • kiwitcms-junit-plugin v8.0

Bug fixes

  • Allow displaying lists with more then 9 items when reviewing test cases. Fixes Issue #339 (Mfon Eti-mfon)
  • Make tcms.tests.storage.RaiseWhenFileNotFound` capable of finding finding static files on Windows which enables development mode for folks not using Linux environment. See SO #55297178 (Mfon Eti-mfon)
  • Allow changing test execution status without adding comment. Fixes Issue #1261
  • Properly refresh test run progress bar when changing statuses. Fixes Issue #1326
  • Fix a bug where updating test cases from the UI was causing text and various other fields to be reset. Fixes Issue #1318

Refactoring

  • Extract attachments widget to new template. Fixes Issue #1124 (Rosen Sasov)
  • Rename RPC related classes. Fixes Issue #682 (Rosen Sasov)
  • Add new test (Mariyan Garvanski)
  • Start using GitHub actions, first for running flake8
  • Remove unused TestCase.get_previous_and_next()
  • Remove unused TestCaseStatus.string_to_instance()
  • Remove unused TestCase.create()
  • Remove unused json_success_refresh_page()
  • Remove unused fields from SearchPlanForm
  • Use JSON-RPC in previewPlan()

Happy testing!

Hello testers, Kiwi TCMS is migrating from its OAuth backend to the so called "GitHub App" backend in order to enable further integration with GitHub's PR flow as stated previously in our yearly goals. This blog post outlines the differences between the old and the new!

The old OAuth application only had access to your username, name and email for authentication purposes. Its authorization screen looked like so:

OAuth login screen

GitHub Apps on the other hand are designed for more granular access and tighter integration with the GitHub platform. This type of application still allows you to perform 1-click login into https://public.tenant.kiwitcms.org. If this is your first time logging into Kiwi TCMS after the migration you will see the following screen:

App login screen

Notice how the heading, information section and action button are slightly different! The important section is Resources on your account! We still only need your name, username and email address! Existing Kiwi TCMS accounts (from before the migration) will continue to work and they will still have access to all of their data previously created. Authorization of this new GitHub app (e.g. login only) does not give it permissions to access your repositories and act on your behalf.

To permit this GitHub App to access your repositories and/or act on your behalf you must Install it first. That is tell Kiwi TCMS GitHub integration code what kind of resources from your GitHub account it is allowed to access. You may install into your personal GitHub account or an organizational account! You may do this by following the Install & Authorize button on our home page or directly from https://github.com/apps/kiwi-tcms! The screen should look like this:

App installation screen

Initially we ask for read-only access to a few resources so Kiwi TCMS can start receiving webhooks from GitHub and synchronize information about your repositories into our database. This is documented both on the app installation screen itself (required by GitHub) and on https://github.com/kiwitcms/github-app!

Further ideas about integration between GitHub and Kiwi TCMS, including the original idea about status checks from Issue #700, can be found at https://github.com/kiwitcms/github-app/issues.

Help us grow

After this migration we're back to zero! The thousands of authorizations we've had on our legacy OAuth app can't be migrated to the new app. This also means our listing on GitHub Marketplace will be taken down and we have to qualify through the entire process from scratch.

Please help us get back on track! Here's what we ask you to do (in this order):

Thank you! Happy testing and happy new year!

Kiwi TCMS 7.2

Changes since Kiwi TCMS 6.11

Security

  • API method BugSystem.filter() has been removed (now unused) but it was possible to use this method to steal passwords or keys used for Issue Tracker integration. This vulnerability could be exploited by users logged into Kiwi TCMS and is classified as medium severity! We advise you to change your integration API keys and passwords immediately!

Improvements

  • Update Django from 2.2.4 to 2.2.5
  • Update django-uuslug from 1.1.8 to 1.1.9
  • Update mysqlclient from 1.4.2.post1 to 1.4.4
  • Update python-bugzilla from 2.2.0 to 2.3.0
  • Update python-gitlab from 1.10.0 to 1.11.0
  • Update patternfly from 3.59.3 to 3.59.4
  • Reduce docker image size from 1.01 GB to under 600 MB
  • Add TestCase Health telemetry
  • Add support for Redmine issue tracker. Fixes Issue #41 (Jesse C. Lin)
  • Add breathing room around HTML form's submit buttons (Rady Madjev)
  • New TestRun page action: bulk-add hyperlinks to TestExecution(s)
  • Make it possible to disable HTTPS by specifying the KIWI_DONT_ENFORCE_HTTPS environment variable! Fixes Issue #1036 (Marco Descher)
  • Documentation updates, including internal style checker. Fixes Issue #1000 (Prome88)
  • When linking a TestExecution to a defect and choosing to update the Issue Tracker Kiwi TCMS will not add a comment pointing back to TR ID/summary/URL and TE ID/summary. This provides more detailed information about the reproducer instead of just linking to a TestCase without any specific execution details like we did in the past
  • Display additional defect information via Issue Tracker integration. On Patternfly pages which show defect URLs this is accessible via a small info icon. Fixes Issue #117
  • Add minimalistic defect tracker functionality. Fixes Issue #699
    • integrated with Issue Tracker integration layer as if it was an external system
    • when adding hyperlink to TestExecition (also via API method TestExecution.add_link()) this is special cased and the references between Bug and TestExecution are always updated
    • when clicking 'Report bug' from inside Test Execution the new defect is reported automatically and a new browser window opens to display the information

Database migrations

  • Tell the migration planner to apply testruns.0006_rename_test_case_run_to_test_execution after linkreference.0001_squashed. This enables subsequent migrations and new functionality to be applied without crashing.

    Warning

    Django should be able to handle this automatically both for existing installations and for new ones. In any case make sure you backup your data first and make a dry-run to verify that nothing breaks!

  • Remove fields url_reg_exp, validate_reg_exp and description from BugSystem model

  • Update the following fields in LinkReference model:

    • rename test_case_run to execution
    • add indexing for created_on and url
    • add is_defect field
  • Apply LinkReference permissions to default group Tester. Fixes Issue #881

    Warning

    Administrators of existing applications will need to apply these permissions by hand via the Admin section.

  • Remove testcases.Bug model, replaced with LinkReference. Closes Issue #1029 and obsoletes Issue #320.

    Note

    Linking bugs to TestExecution is now performed via URLs instead of keeping a reference to BUG-ID and trying to reconstruct the URL on the fly.

    Warning

    The model named Bug which is added by subsequent migrations refers to defects reported into Kiwi TCMS minimalistic defect tracker!

  • New model bugs.Bug is now available. Permissions of type bugs | bug | Can ... will be applied to the default group named Tester only for new installations.

    Warning

    Administrators of existing applications will need to apply these permissions by hand via the Admin section.

API

  • TestExecution.add_link() method now returns serialized LinkReference object.
  • TestExecution.remove_link() method now accepts one parameter of type dict used to filter the objects which to remove
  • TestExecution.get_links() method now accepts one parameter of type dict instead of int
  • TestExecution.add_link() method signature changed from (int, str, str) to (dict), where the single parameter holds field values for the LinkReference model
  • Remove TestExecution.add_bug() method, use TestExecution.add_link()
  • Remove TestExecution.remove_bug() method, use TestExecution.remove_link()
  • Remove TestCase.add_bug() method
  • Remove TestCase.remove_bug() method
  • Remove Bug.remove() method, use TestExecution.remove_link()
  • Remove Bug.create() method, use TestExecution.add_link()
  • Add method Bug.details() which together with the underlying IssueTracker.details() is the foundation of how Kiwi TCMS fetches extra details from the issue tracking system. The default implementation uses OpenGraph protocol to collect the data that will be shown. You may override .details() for each issue tracker (or add your own IT) to extend this functionality. Information is cached for 1 hour by default. References Issue #117
  • Add methods Bug.add_tag() and Bug.remove_tag()
  • Existing method with name Bug.filter() has changed behavior. It is now used to query objects from Kiwi TCMS minimalistic defect tracker

Removed functionality

  • Remove IssueTrackerType.all_issues_link() method. This was used in TestRun Report page to show a single link that will open all bugs in the Issue Tracker. Most trackers don't support this and the UI portion has been rewritten
  • Remove LinkOnly issue tracker - obsolete because all defects are now added to TestExecutions via their URLs
  • Remove bulk-add/bulk-remove of bugs in TestRun page, replaced by bulk-add for hyperlinks

Settings

  • Respect the CACHES setting, see Django docs for more info. Initially this setting is used to cache defect details received via Issue Tracker integration. See Issue #117

Bug fixes

  • Don't auto-download FontAwesome for SimpleMDE. Resolves icons disappearing on pages which have the markdown editor. Fixes Issue #905
  • Reorder HTML elements so Delete button is still visible in TestCase review comment section. Fixes Issue #1013 (Rady Madjev)
  • Remove section that displays bugs in TestExecution container. Bugs are now denoted by a small icon next to their hyperlink. Closes Issue #475
  • Cache Issue Tracker connections per base_url. Fixes Issue #290

Refactoring

  • Lots of refactoring from function based views to class based views (Rady Madjev)
  • Use JavaScript and the API to remove case execution instead of dedicated backend function (Rady Madjev)
  • Update pylint directives around missing permissions (Svetlomir Balevski)
  • Fix typo in identifier. Fixes CID 344186
  • Use TestExecution.add_link() and TestExecution.remove_link() in UI instead of dedicated backend function.
  • Remove unused LinkReference views, forms and tests modules
