This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT command line interface.


  1. If you are running through the set of ABRT test cases you probably have a bunch of crash reports in cache. If not, then crash some applications with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). Make sure they are not applications containing important data!
  2. Make sure you have abrt-cli installed: su -c 'dnf install abrt-cli'

How to test

  1. Run abrt-cli list to show all crashes
  2. Run abrt-cli list --not-reported to show not reported crashes
  3. Enable Mailx an Logger workflows
    sudo sed -i 's/# EVENT/EVENT/' /etc/libreport/workflows.d/report_logger.conf /etc/libreport/workflows.d/report_mailx.conf
  4. Try crash reporting: run abrt-cli report -- DIR to e.g. Export the problem data information to a text file
    • Select reporting using Export the problem data information to a text file
  5. Run abrt-cli rm DIR to delete the report

Expected Results

  1. Option list shows all crashes
  2. Option list --not-reported shows all not reported crashes
  3. Option report shows asks for selection of the reporting workflow
    • ABRT asks you to choose one of the workflows and the ask you whether you want to generate backtrace on the Retrace server or the local machine and then analyzes the crash and creates a report. When the report is ready, abrt-cli ask you for a path to store the report and then opens a text editor with the content of the report. You can see what's being reported, and you are able to fill in instructions on how to reproduce the crash and other comments.
  4. Option rm deletes crash
