PolicyTest adds network policy testing to the existing suite of OPNFV functional tests. Testing focuses on network configuration policy testing following the principles of "group based policy". "Group based policy" allows users to express network configuration in a declarative way, i.e. describe policy in terms of "what you want", rather than "how you'd do it". Further details on "group based policy" can be found on the following wiki: wiki.opendaylight.org/view/Group_Based_Policy_(GBP) PolicyTest defines and implements system-level policy tests and integrates them into OPNFV CI/CD pipeline. PolicyTest closely liases with OPNFV projects (Copper, Octopus, Releng, etc.) as well as network policy related upstream projects (Opendaylight GBP).
PolicyTest will augment the existing functional tests. It'll work in close interlock with the following projects.
Initial set of system-level network policy test cases are expected to be available as part of OPNFV Brahmaputra release.
