8.1.10. Tempest Network API test specification Scope

The Tempest Network API test area tests the basic operations of the System Under Test (SUT) through the life of a VNF. The tests in this test area will evaluate IPv4 network runtime operations functionality.

These runtime operations may include that create, list, verify or delete:

  • Floating IP

  • Network

  • Subnet

  • Port

  • External Network Visibility

  • Router

  • Subnetpools

  • API Version Resources References


  • create network

  • delete network

Routers and interface:

  • create router

  • update router

  • delete router

  • add interface to router


  • create subnet

  • update subnet

  • delete subnet


  • create subnetpool

  • update subnetpool

  • delete subnetpool


  • create port

  • update port

  • delete port

Floating IPs:

  • create floating IP

  • delete floating IP

Api Versions

  • list version

  • show version System Under Test (SUT)

The system under test is assumed to be the NFVi and VIM in operation on a Pharos compliant infrastructure. Test Area Structure

The test area is structured in individual tests as listed below. For detailed information on the individual steps and assertions performed by the tests, review the Python source code accessible via the following links:

All these test cases are included in the test case functest.tempest.network of OVP test suite.
