Testing with Feature Checks

Projects may ship a feature that is disabled by default, but should still be properly unit tested, or may have a feature enabled that should appear disabled for certain tests.

Djblets ships with utility functions that can help with feature-related unit tests.

Overriding Feature Checks

A common task in a unit test will be to test a piece of code with one or more features in a given state. There are two context manager functions that can help with this: override_feature_check() and override_feature_checks().

override_feature_check() takes a single feature ID and an enabled state to set. Any code using that feature within the context manager will see the feature set to the desired state, regardless of its feature level. For example:

from djblets.features.testing import override_feature_check

with override_feature_check('my-feature-id', enabled=True):

override_feature_checks() does the same thing, but for multiple feature checks at once. It takes a dictionary of feature IDs and their enabled states. For example:

from djblets.features.testing import override_feature_checks

feature_states = {
    'my-feature-id-1': True,
    'my-feature-id-2': False,

with override_feature_checks(feature_states):
