py.test BugZilla integration plugin
pytest_bugzilla is a py.test plugin to integrate it with bugzilla so that it's possible to annotate tests with the identifier of the bug they're testing.

If the bug has been closed but the test still fails, a warning is generated and if the bug is still open, the test is flagged as analysed (instead of Failed)


After installation (e.g. via pip install pytest-bugzilla) you can just invoke py.test as usual. The plugin is activated by default.

To disable it (eg. if your bugzilla installation is slow), you can use the --buzilla-disable command line option

Use py.test --help for additional options.

Annotating tests

To mark a test as being for a specific issue (say issue no. 12345), Put "#12345" somewhere in the test functions docstring e.g.:

def test_something():
 "This test is for bug #12345"

Bugzilla credentials

You can change the bugzilla server URL/username/password using command line options. You can edit the plugin file to change the defaults so that they work without having to pass these options explicitly.
