PhpStorm 2018.2 Help

Creating Run/Debug Configuration for Tests

Introduction

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.

    • Press Shift+Alt+F10 and choose Edit Configuration on the context menu.
  2. Click Add on the toolbar and select the desired configuration type:
  3. 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.
