Follow E2E setup instructions.

Setting up core tests

Version 0.2.0 or newer

Version 0.2.0 added a test installer that will populate the tests/e2e/specs folder with test scripts for all the current core test suite. It also creates sample configuration files including all the configuration data needed to run the core tests.

  • Install the e2e-environment npm install @woocommerce/e2e-environment --save-dev
  • Run the installer npx wc-e2e install @woocommerce/e2e-core-tests
  • Merge the sample configuration files:
    • tests/e2e/docker/woocommerce.e2e-core-tests.sh => initialize.sh
    • tests/e2e/config/default-woocommerce.e2e-core-tests.json => default.json

Version 0.1.X or other test runner

  • Create the folder tests/e2e/specs in your repository if it does not exist.
  • To add a core test to your test suite, create a new .test.js file within tests/e2e/specs . Example code to run all the shopper tests:
const { runShopperTests } = require( '@woocommerce/e2e-core-tests' );


Retrying/Re-running tests

On a new site, the setup and activation tests prepare the site for the remainder of the tests. To retry/rerun the test suite on a site where setup/onboarding test have already run use the environment variable E2E_RETEST=1.

Contributing a new test

  • In your branch create a new example-test-name.test.js under the appropriate folder in the specs directory.
  • Jest does not allow its global functions to be accessed outside the jest environment. To allow the test code to be published in a package import any jest global functions used in your test
const {
} = require( '@jest/globals' );
  • Wrap your test in a function and export it
const runExampleTestName = () => {
	describe('Example test', () => {
		beforeAll(async () => {
			// ...

		it('do some example action', async () => {
            // ...
        // ...

module.exports = runExampleTestName;
const runExampleTestName = require( './grouping/example-test-name.test' );
// ...
module.exports = {
// ...
