Unit test

Run the unit test

As you typically would, with any software project, running the unit tests locally is no different for Serverless applications. Developers run them before pushing changes to a code repository. So, go ahead and run the unit tests for your project.

In the terminal, run this command from the sam-app/hello_world folder to run the unit tests:

cd ~/environment/sam-app
pip install pytest pytest-mock --user
python -m pytest tests/ -v

The tests should fail. This is expected! test

Update the unit test

We removed message key and added the location in response, but the unit test was expecting hello world in message. This is an easy fix, let’s update the unit test.

Open the file sam-app/hello_world/tests/unit/test_handler.py and update the expected value for the response to match the new message. The unit test should look like this after the update:

import json
import re

import pytest

from hello_world import app

def apigw_event():
    """ Generates API GW Event"""

def test_lambda_handler(apigw_event, mocker):

    ret = app.lambda_handler(apigw_event, "")
    data = json.loads(ret["body"])
    ip = data['location']
    pattern = re.compile("^\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}$")
    assert ret["statusCode"] == 200
    assert "location" in ret["body"]
    assert bool(pattern.match(ip)) == True

Run the test again

python -m pytest tests/ -v

Now the tests should pass: Re test
