[Tests] Make workbench integration tests finish faster (at least in Jenkins)
#1 Updated by Radhika Chippada about 2 years ago
Similar to workbench_units, workbench_functionals, workbench_integration, it would be helpful if we further split workbench_integration tests into multiple jobs. Currently, the workbench_integration is the longest job in jenkins, taking around 21 mins. Breaking it into multiple jobs that can run parallel will help reduce the overall jenkins run time.
A couple options:
1. minitest 5.10.1 has --exclude option. This option can be used to exclude tests with a specific pattern such "test_project..." from a test run. Unfortunately, the pattern matching seems to be available only on the test name, not a test file name. To use this option we would need to edit our test files and make sure all test names start with a specific string. For example, to omit all tests from pipeline_instances_test.rb from a job run, we would need to update all tests in this file to have a name such as "test 'pipeline blah blah blah'"
2. Another option is to rename all the integration test files to something like 1_pipeline..., 1_projects...., 2_anonymous... We can then run all files starting with "1_" as one job and all files starting with "2_" as a separate job.

Branch 11251-split-wb-integration-tests takes an initial stab at using minutest --exclude option.
This branch intends to split the workbench integration tests into two jobs: one job running all tests in the test/integration/p*rb and another test running all other tests from all other files. (However, the tests in the p*.rb files themselves are not yet renamed to use specific prefixes)

IMO we should be fixing slow/redundant test cases before we give up and make the test pipeline/server fatter. It looks like the 10 slowest tests account for 3 minutes of runtime, and 6 of them test the sharing feature. It seems very likely something wasting a lot of time in either the tests or the sharing feature itself.
