This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Logger reporting plugin.

How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c 'dnf install libreport-plugin-logger'
  2. Turn on the logger workflow
sudo sed -i 's/# EVENT/EVENT/' /etc/libreport/workflows.d/report_logger.conf
  1. Confirm that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  2. Kill some running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid) or run will_segfault. It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package.
  3. Run Problem Reporting application.
  4. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then click Report.
  5. When you reach reporter selector page, select Export the problem data information to a text file
  6. Go through the reporting process until a dialog asking for Log File path appears.
  7. Fill in the path and continue
  8. Click through to the last window of the wizard

Expected Results

  1. After you finish the steps in wizard in the log you should see "The report was stored/appended to <FILENAME>"
  2. Open the log file and see if crash information is in it and is well-formatted
