On all PRs, a suite of static and cluster tests is run against your changes in a CI environment. These tests can also be run locally, which is discussed below.
Static tests consist of unit, formatting, and doc link tests.
Cluster tests consist of several test types:
- End-to-end (e2e): simulate the “happy path” usage of the
operator-sdkbinary and resulting operator project.
- Integration: test components of the
operator-sdkbinary and features of scaffolded projects that are bound to external projects, such as OLM.
- Subcommand: ensure individual subcommands function as intended with a variety of input options.
