Model, unlike v1, are dummy data container objects. The intent is to make them as light as possible to make dealing
with large data sets more efficient. They may contain an interface that passes through to a
Provider in the
Just as a note, the database related tests can grab a valid DB instance from the codeguy class, this loads the config from the main codeception.yml config so you only need to update the DB config in one place to run the tests.
In the tests classes this can be fetched with
