Chapter 7. Viewing and Submitting the Test Logs for Review

Partners can view and submit the test logs for review using the Red Hat certification web user interface(UI) or using the command line interface (CLI).

7.1. Viewing and Submitting the Test Logs using web UI

The test runs generate two log files based on the type of product undergoing certification. The log files generated are as follows:

  • For Products Implementing OpenStack APIs: A consolidated log file for OpenStack API/Tempest and the OpenStack Supportability tests
  • For Products Consuming OpenStack APIs: A single log file for OpenStack Supportability tests

It is mandatory to submit the log files generated based on your product type to Red Hat Certification services for review.

Note

Test logs are also generated for every test type and may be viewed on Red Hat Certification application. However, it is mandatory to submit the consolidated log file for review using the procedure covered below.

  1. Launch Red Hat Certification web UI on the test server.
  2. On Red Hat Certification Home Page, from the Products Table, click the name of the product/image-under-test.
  3. From the Certification Page, click the relevant certification entry.
  4. Click the Testing link to open the Testing Page.
  1. In the Testing Page, click the results timestamp under the hostname of the Undercloud node on which you run the OpenStack Director test (openstack/director).

  7. Repeat step 6 and submit the test logs generated from the OpenStack API/Tempest tests (if applicable) and OpenStack Supportability and Director tests for review.

7.2. Viewing and Submitting the Test Logs using Red Hat Certification CLI

To submit the test logs using Red Hat Certification CLI, run the following command on the image-under-test.

# rhcert-cli submit

Type your Red Hat account credentials previously enabled for certifcation in the Red Hat Catalog Username and Password.The Certification ID is generated when you successfully create a certification request. Type the ID of the certification request in the Certification ID dialog box.

The # rhcert-cli submit command works only if the image has a network that can connect to the Red Hat services. The command submits the latest timestamped test logs on your host/image to Red Hat certification services for review. The test log file is reviewed by Red Hat certification services and Red Hat Review team. The certification results are displayed on Red Hat Certification web user interface.

If the image-under-test does not have internet access, save the test logs on the image-under-test using the # rhcert-cli save --server [hostname/IP address of LTS] command.
