Run/Debug Configuration: Django Test
Use this dialog box to create a run/debug configuration for Django tests.
In this section:
|Specify the target to be executed. If the field is left empty, it means that all the tests in all the applications specified in |
Same rules apply to the doctests contained in the test targets. The test label is used as the path to the test method or class to be executed. If there is function with a doctest, or a class with a class-level doctest, you can invoke that test by appending the name of the test method or class to the label.
|If this checkbox is selected, Django test will run with the specified custom settings, rather than with the default ones. |
Specify the fully qualified name of the file that contains Django settings. You can either type it manually, in the text field to the right, or click the browse button, and select one in the dialog box that opens.
If this checkbox is not selected, Django test will run with the default settings, defined in the Settings field of the Django page. The text field is disabled.
|If this checkbox is selected, it is possible to specify parameters to be passed to the Django tests. Type the list of parameters in the text field to the right, prepending parameters with '--' and using spaces as delimiters. For example: |
If this checkbox is not selected, the text field is disabled.
Click this drop-down list to select one of the projects, opened in the same PyCharm window, where this run/debug configuration should be used. If there is only one open project, this field is not displayed.
This field shows the list of environment variables. If the list contains several variables, they are delimited with semicolons.
Just copy the list of variables from the text file and click Paste () in the Environmental Variables dialog box. The variables will be added to the table. Click Ok to complete the task. At any time, you can select all variables in the Environment Variables dialog box, click Copy (), and paste them into a text file.
Select one of the pre-configured Python interpreters from the drop-down list.
In this field, specify the string to be passed to the interpreter. If necessary, click , and type the string in the editor.
|Specify a directory to be used by the running task. |
Add content roots to PYTHONPATH
Select this check box to add all content roots of your project to the environment variable PYTHONPATH;
Add source roots to PYTHONPATH
Select this check box to add all source roots of your project to the environment variable PYTHONPATH;
Docker container settings
Click to open the dialog and specify the following settings:
Click to expand the tables. Click , , or to make up the lists.
Log File Entry
The read-only fields in this column list the log files to show. The list can contain:
Select this check box to have the previous content of the selected log skipped.
Save console output to file
Select this check box to save the console output to the specified location. Type the path manually, or click the browse button and point to the desired location in the dialog that opens.
Show console when a message is printed to standard output stream
Select this check box to activate the output console and bring it forward if an associated process writes to Standard.out.
Show console when a message is printed to standard error stream
Select this check box to activate the output console and bring it forward if an associated process writes to Standard.err.
Click this button to open the Edit Log Files Aliases dialog where you can select a new log entry and specify an alias for it.
Click this button to edit the properties of the selected log file entry in the Edit Log Files Aliases dialog.
Click this button to remove the selected log entry from the list.
Click this button to edit the select log file entry. The button is available only when an entry is selected.
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options for it:
In this text box, specify the name for the run/debug configuration. The name will help you identify the created configuration when you choose to edit it later, or when you invoke it, for example, from the Run popup (Shift+Alt+F10).
Select this checkbox to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under .idea \runConfigurations folder, while the local run/debug configurations are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml.
Allow running in parallel
When disabled, every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, PyCharm checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.
This makes sense when the usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.
If this checkbox is selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the run/debug configuration as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run Tool Window or Debug Tool Window.
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
Create a run/debug configuration.
Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
View and edit the default template for the selected run/debug configuration. The templates are used for newly created configurations.
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
Move into new folder / Create new folder
You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag-and-drop or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
Under the Templates node in the tree view of run configurations, you can select a run configuration template and edit its default settings. This will not affect the configurations that are already created, but will be used as defaults when creating new configurations of the corresponding type.
When you select the Templates node itself, you will be able to adjust general settings that apply to all run/debug configurations:
Configurations available in Run Dashboard
In this section you can create a list of run configurations available in the Run Dashboard — a tool window that helps you execute and manage multiple run/debug configurations.
Note that the dashboard will only display the configuration types for which you have created one ore more configurations.
Confirm rerun with process termination
|The behavior of this checkbox depends on whether the Single instance only option is selected for a particular run/debug configuration. |
Temporary configurations limit
Specify the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.
Before Launch options
In this area you can specify tasks that must be be performed before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
Click this icon to add one of the following available tasks:
Click this icon to remove the selected task from the list.
Click this icon to edit the selected task. Make the necessary changes in the dialog that opens.
Click these icons to move the selected task one line up or down in the list. (The tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.)
Show this page
Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.
Activate tool window
Otherwise, the tool window isn't shown. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing Alt+4 or Alt+5.
