Recent Work Completed


What We're Working on Today


Next Priorities*

Optimizing E2E Testing: Reducing Time and Resource Consumption

Optimized the E2E testing process by using a pre-filled Docker container with a pre-built frontend instead of the dev server. This change reduced test execution time by over 75% and minimized resource consumption by more than 80%, resolving the persistent failures in GitHub Action builds.


OpenMRS 3.0 E2E Test Automation

As development of OpenMRS 3.0 progressively evolves, so are the tests being developed using the Playwright integration. Ensuring the two processes are happening simultaneously.

      • We can have only one `it` block per test

@Jayasanka Weerasinghe :

  • Distribution 3.x E2E is passing! 

  • Created a GH actions to run E2E tests on PRs: Link

    • Good news: It works!

    • Bad news: takes ~38 mins to run the whole test suit

    • More info on this talk post

    • @Ian Bacher 's response on slack: Link

  • Is there a way to reduce the spin up time?

    • Using a DB dump would significantly reduce the time needed to startup

  • Evaluated playwright

    • Wrote some existing tests using playwright on patient-management repo

    • Key takeaways:

      • We can do almost everything we do now with it,

      • It appears to be far superior to cypress.

      • Having e2e tests on repository itself would improve the developer experience

Next week:

  • @Joshua Nsereko : Make sure offline tests are up to date and integrate them with the pipeline

    • Developer engagement is low

    • It's not providing immediate feedback for developers

    • Do not get enough developer attention

  • Reasons might be:

    • Tests are not running against PRs

    • The current process is not a part of the development workflow

    • E2E tests are maintained by QA team, not O3 developers

  • One possible solution would be:

    • Come up with a repository specific E2E test

    • Tests runs on PR so that developers can fix issues / update tests within the PR itself

    • Run tests on deployments

    • Come up with good documentation of E2E expectation and best practices

  • Goal:

    • To make E2E tests a part of development workflow

    • Improve developer engagement

    • Immediate feedbacks

    • Level up the confidence

  • This week:

    • Try to come up with a POC
