Smoke Tests

It is imperative in any testing suite that we have Smoke Tests. In short, smoke tests run quick end-to-end functional tests from GitLab QA and are designed to run against the specified environment to ensure that basic functionality is working.

Our suite consists of this basic functionality coverage:

  • User standard authentication
  • SSH Key creation and addition to a user
  • Project simple creation
  • Project creation with Auto-DevOps enabled
  • Issue creation
  • Issue user mentions
  • Merge Request creation
  • Snippet creation

Smoke tests have the :smoke RSpec metadata.

See End-to-end Testing for more details about end-to-end tests.
