Running tests after deployment best practices

Brendon Parker March 18, 2022

I see questions for this related to bamboo. But I’m using bitbucket cloud. 

What is the best process for running integration tests post-deployment? Should that be in the deployment step/script? Or a build step that runs after the deployment in the pipeline? Is it even possible to run a build step after a deployment step? If so, how do I make sure I don’t run another deployment while the build(tests) are running. 

I’m thinking it makes most sense to run the tests as a part of the deployment step, as then the deployment can pass/fail as a whole. Also keeps deployments in other pipelines for the same environment from running. 

looking for confirmation on this approach or other ideas.

Hey Brendan, 

Environment in Bitbucket is defined at a step level unfortunately, previously I have worked with Gitlab which did not have this limitation.

As per the deployments are paused if there is one running for the environment.

So it makes sense to add them in the same script and not as a separate step.

Also, generally one should run the tests before the deployment happens, is there a reason there is a post-deployment test run? If that fails would you rollback?

Or by deployment you mean just the build process?
