How to run tests

What is the command to start a server instance and run the test suite?

Where can I check the results afterwards?

Tests are launched when you install or update modules. If you want to launch the tests of the sale module and all it's dependencies, you have to create a demo database and

./openerp-server --addons-path=... -d mydb --log-level=test -i sale --test-enable

The argument --log-level=test is not required, but if you omit it, you will not see the logs of all tests that are executed.

Optionally, you can add:


If you develop on the sale module, you can run the server with the same argumentsn but with -u instead of -i (and avoid the createdb command) so that it relaunches only the tests of the sale module.
