New in version 3.7.
Specifies a list of fixtures for which the test is to be treated as a setup test. These fixture names are distinct from test case names and are not required to have any similarity to the names of tests associated with them.
Fixture setup tests are ordinary tests with all of the usual test
functionality. Setting the
FIXTURES_SETUP property for a test has two
CTest will ensure the test executes before any other test which lists the fixture name(s) in its
If CTest is asked to run only a subset of tests (e.g. using regular expressions or the
--rerun-failedoption) and the setup test is not in the set of tests to run, it will automatically be added if any tests in the set require any fixture listed in
A setup test can have multiple fixtures listed in its
property. It will execute only once for the whole CTest run, not once for each
fixture. A fixture can also have more than one setup test defined. If there are
multiple setup tests for a fixture, projects can control their order with the
DEPENDS test property if necessary.
A setup test is allowed to require other fixtures, but not any fixture listed
FIXTURES_SETUP property. For example:
# Ok: dependent fixture is different to setup set_tests_properties(setupFoo PROPERTIES FIXTURES_SETUP Foo FIXTURES_REQUIRED Bar ) # Error: cannot require same fixture as setup set_tests_properties(setupFoo PROPERTIES FIXTURES_SETUP Foo FIXTURES_REQUIRED Foo )
If any of a fixture's setup tests fail, none of the tests listing that fixture
FIXTURES_REQUIRED property will be run. Cleanup tests will,
however, still be executed.
