Re: [QF-Test] QF-Test 4.0.11 - Linux session Queries

Hello Sushma,

the ssh procedures and scripts in the qfs.qft library are based on

Unfortunately there is no simple way to send a password through such a
channel because by default programs like su read it from the
associated terminal and not from standard input.

Instead of logging in as one user and switching to another user with
su, why can't you set up the .ssh/authorized_keys for the other user
so that you can login directly as that user?

Regarding your first question: The output from the ssh server is the
return value of the qfs.utils.ssh.session.send procedure and you'll
find it there in the run-log.

Also, when you call the close procedure you can pass the name for a
result group via its parameter resultGroupName. QF-Test binds the
collected output and the exit code of the session in that result
group, so after you call

qfs.utils.ssh.session.close (resultGroupName=sshres)

${sshres:exitCode} expands to the session's exit code and
${sshres:stdout} to the collected output to stdout and stderr.

Best regards,
