Hi Lenka,

Firstly a technical detail: Python indexes lists from 0, so the
comments in 'options_ok' do not correctly map to the test names anyway.

I am also not sure if this patch is worth reviewing and pushing as it
IMHO doesn't help in the identification of failed tests at all.

This should be solved at more fundamental level.

Ouch, good point, I didn't realize. Sorry.

Anyway, the issue is that even if tests are run in verbose mode, you get
output like this:







If some test fails, you can't really tell which command was the one
responsible for the fail. This should be solved by
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/5449. Until that's done, though,
the only way to find out which command failed is looking at the code and
finding which parameters were put into the command, which was not much
possible without better commenting the test case (as I realized last
week when David Kupka asked me to help him find the reason for failed
Obviously I can rewrite the tests so there's 27 separate test cases, one
for each parameter, instead of one method that 'unwraps' into 27 test
cases, which would entirely eliminate the confusion. So far I don't know
of a way to put 27 similar test cases in one method which would allow
easy recognition of the test cases.
I'll wait with fixing the patch until further discussion.

Pytest wants you to be a bit more explicit about how to name the
parameters. (It "hides" dicts by default, because large dicts would make
the output even more confusing than the numbers.)

Please try the attached patch.
Docs are at https://pytest.org/latest/fixture.html#parametrizing-a-fixture

This looks like a better approach IMHO, you can then see which attribute/value was being checked.

I would very much favor more descriptive test/fixture names in the beginning.
