Re: Weird issue: database does not run tests

One of our developers just had this issue with a single module. The tests would run in a copy of the production database, but not in a fresh and empty database.

I asked him to install the module manually from the UI in the empty database and turns out that a dependency was missing in the manifest file and the module failed to install. This dependency was present in the copy of the production database and that's why the tests worked just fine there.

If a module is already installed -u works just fine. Im not sure -i even works if already installed hence the suggestion.

Oh, and tests only run when installing the module - have you used "-i module --test-entable" from the command line?

Subject: Weird issue: database does not run tests

I found this issue, and it is puzzling me, so I wonder if someone out 
there has some idea.

While creating a new module, using a dev database with demo data, at 
some point I added tests.
However, these tests don't get to run. I'm sure their Python files are 
being loaded, but the test runner is not executing them.
It is not like they are failing because of wrong data, They're simply 
not being executed,

After several trial and errors, I got them running after creating a new 
database and running them on this database.

So everything is the same: the code, the conf file, the system 
environment, ...
But test run in database B and not in database A!

Why would that be?
This was using Odoo 12.

Thanks for any insights
