Manage Helpers


The tester manage helpers are simple wrappers around the core management methods such as n2svcd.management_resource_drilldown. They provide some common pre/post-processing to make the Lua test scripts simpler and more streamlined.

Tester REST management helper methods are accessed via the “n2.n2svcd.tester.manage” module:

    local manage = require "n2.n2svcd.tester.manage"

.resource_row_instance [Asynchronous]

The resource_row_instance method uses the n2svcd.management_resource_row method to request the specific target application return of a single specific resource vector row where specifically:

The post-processing of the trace_log involves finding all trace.warning and trace.error trace_log entries, and extracting the text part of the line. These are placed in to warnings psuedo-column which can be checked for expected or unexpected warnings for the instance.

Only one single matching row is returned, rather than an array of rows.

The parameters for this method are:

Parameter Type Description
app_name String [Required] The name of the application whose resource vector we are fetching.
This must be a real application name, it cannot be a virtual (load-share/failover) app name.
(Default = use the RestClientApp configured as "default_rest_app_name")
instance_idx String [Required] The instance_idx identifying the specific instance.
This is the automatically assigned 8-character hexadecimal string.

The resource_row_instance method returns a Lua table object on success, or nil if the specific resource_row_instance did not match any of the resource rows.


    instance = tester_api.rest_resource_row_instance ('Logic', edr_result.instance_idx)
    n2svcd.match_kpath_string (instance, 'completed', 'YES/Retain', true)
    n2svcd.match_kpath_string (instance, 'warnings.[0]', nil, true)
