Creating Run/Debug Configuration for Tests
You can run your tests (test cases, test suites, etc.) using run/debug configurations, in the way similar to running ordinary applications. PhpStorm provides a framework for creating special run/debug configurations for testing purposes, where a test can be specified as a target.
In addition to the regular test configuration creation, PhpStorm supports creating test configurations for specific targets, for example for all tests in a file, class, or directory, or for an arbitrary selection of test classes and methods.
To create a test configuration
- Open the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box by doing one of the following:
On the main menu, choose.
Press Shift+Alt+F10 and choose Edit Configuration on the context menu.
- Click on the toolbar and select the desired configuration type:
PHPUnit for running PHPUnit tests.
Behat for running Behat tests.
Codeception for running Codeception tests.
PHPSpec for running PHPSpec specifications.
DartUnit for testing Dart, see Run/Debug Configuration: Dart Test.
In the dialog box that opens, specify the test scope, configuration parameters, and activities to perform before test execution. Apply the changes and close the dialog box.
To create a test configuration for a specific target
In the Project tool window, right-click the desired test directory, individual file, or class.
On the context menu of the selection, choose Create Run configuration.
In the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box that opens, specify the configuration parameters and activities to perform before test execution. Apply the changes and close the dialog box.
