Using Robot Framework to create easy tests

Hello

PyATS, Genie, and unicon implement robot framework to create easy verifications for your network. Today i’ve created this simple robot testset that goes through a number of tests.

*** Settings ***
Library    ats.robot.pyATSRobot
Library    genie.libs.robot.GenieRobot
Library    pyats.aetest.container.TestContainer
Library    genie.libs.robot.GenieRobotApis
Library    unicon.robot.UniconRobot



*** Test Cases ***

Connect to HUB1 device
    use genie testbed "testbed_session2_slide25.yaml"
    connect to device "HUB1"
Verify that number of bgp routes on HUB1 device is 0
    verify count "0" "bgp routes" on device "HUB1"
Verify that Tunnels are UP on HUB1
    verify interface config no shutdown  device=HUB1  interface=tunnel1251
Disconnect from HUB1 device
    disconnect from device "HUB1"
Connect to ISP device
    use genie testbed "testbed_session2_slide25.yaml"
    connect to device "ISP1"
Verify number of BGP nei
   verify count "1" "bgp neighbors" on device "ISP1"
Disconnect from ISP device
    disconnect from device "ISP1"

The syntax for verifications can be checked at https://pubhub.devnetcloud.com/media/genie-feature-browser/docs/#/apis

One important gotcha is that there need to be two spaces between the name of the verification (for which you just remove the _ character for the name taken from the api website) and the args. Otherwise robot doesn’t know where the name ends and where args start.

I’ll be writing more about this but it’s clear this is an absolutely awesome tool.
