  7. 7. 7 Introduction o Why do we test Ansible roles? Does the role do what it needs to do: • Is it installing the application(s)? • Is it configuring the correct templates? • Is the service(s) running? • etc
  8. 8. 8 Introduction What do we get for testing roles: Improving reliability: • We get more confidence and see that it works • Run the tests when Pull Requests are created Better quality: • Add functionality and/or tests
  9. 9. 9 Molecule v1 “Molecule is designed to aid in the development and testing of Ansible roles including support for multiple instances, operating system distributions, virtualization providers and test frameworks.” pip install molecule
  10. 10. 10 Molecule v1 Drivers: • Vagrant (Default) • OpenStack • Docker New Ansible role: molecule init --driver docker --role <role_name> When you already have a role: molecule init --driver docker
  11. 11. 11 Molecule v1 o Providers (Specific to driver: Vagrant) • Virtualbox (Default) • Libvrt • Parallels • VMware Fusion index.html
  12. 12. 12 Molecule v1 o Verifiers Used for the validation/testing of the role. • TestInfra (Default) • ServerSpec • Goss
  13. 13. 13 Molecule v1 o Molecule subcommands • molecule login ( --host <instance_name> ) • molecule syntax • molecule create • molecule converge • molecule idempotence • molecule verify • ansible-lint • flake • Testinfra / Serverspec / Goss • molecule destroy All can be done with the subcommand: molecule test
