Scriptrunner remote Spock test failing due to java.lang.Exception


Hey there,

i am using Scriptrunner restendpoints, which i want to unittest using the Spockframework  as described here: [Adaptavist] Testing your Code 

Putting the tests into the scriptroot and then executing it via the ui works like a charme.


When trying to run them from IntelliJ i always stumble into the following exception:

 java.lang.Exception: No tests found matching method name filter from org.junit.runner.Request$1@3af039ed

at org.junit.internal.requests.FilterRequest.getRunner(
at org.junit.runner.JUnitCore$run$ Source)
at com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.common.admin.RunUnitTests.doScript(RunUnitTests.groovy:320)

Anyone can help me resolving that issue?


IntelliJ Configuration:2018-03-01 17_47_19-Run - ChangeLanguageTest.png


package X.X.X

import com.atlassian.core.user.preferences.Preferences
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.user.preferences.UserPreferencesManager
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.common.admin.ScriptRunnerTestRunner
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.common.admin.SrSpecification
import org.junit.runner.RunWith

class ChangeLanguageTest extends SrSpecification {

def "Process"() {

setup: "create temporarily user and generate test data"

final String locale
// Check if DefaultUserLocale is de_DE. If switch locale to en_US, so that the test will still work
if (ComponentAccessor.applicationProperties.defaultLocale.toString() == "de_DE"){
locale ="en_US"
else {
locale ="de_DE"
//Create test user
final String username = "changeLanguageTestUser"

ComponentAccessor.userUtil.createUserNoNotification(username,"",username +"",username)

//Generate userLanguageJSON
final String userLanguageJson = "{\n" +
" \"language\": [{\n" +
" \"username\": \"" + username + "\",\n" +
" \"language\": \"" +locale + "\"" +
" }]\n" +
" }"

when: "instantiating changeLanguage and executing process"

new LanguageChanger(userLanguageJson).process()

then: "users locale should be de_DE"

final ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.userManager.getUserByName(username)
final Preferences userPreferences = ((UserPreferencesManager) ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(UserPreferencesManager.class)).getPreferences(user)
final String currentLanguageLocale = userPreferences.getString("jira.user.locale")
currentLanguageLocale == locale

cleanup: "delete all test artifacts"
//Jira does not remove the locale after deleting the user (seems that it is somehow bound to the username)
// that means that it is necessary to delete the userPreference "jira.user.locale" manually, so that a default will be set again.
ComponentAccessor.userUtil.removeUser(ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser, user)
