Gherkin Steps and additional module functions for the Codeception Database module

How to use

Extended module

Use the module PunktDe\Codeception\Database\Module\Database instead of the default codeception module db in your codeception.yaml:

      - PunktDe\Codeception\Database\Module\Database:
         dsn: 'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=testdb'
         user: 'root'
         password: ''
         dump: 'tests/_data/dump.sql'
         populate: true
         cleanup: true
         reconnect: true
         waitlock: 10
         ssl_key: '/path/to/client-key.pem'
         ssl_cert: '/path/to/client-cert.pem'
         ssl_ca: '/path/to/ca-cert.pem'
         ssl_verify_server_cert: false
         ssl_cipher: 'AES256-SHA'
             - 'CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS temp_db;'
             - 'USE temp_db;'
             - 'SET NAMES utf8;'

Gherkin steps

Just add the trait PunktDe\Codeception\Database\ActorTraits\Database to your testing actor. Then you can use *.feature files to write your gherkin tests with the new steps.

Example actor

class AcceptanceTester extends \Codeception\Actor
    use _generated\AcceptanceTesterActions;
    use \PunktDe\Codeception\Database\ActorTraits\Database; // use the database steps trait
Which steps are there?

To get all the steps available you can just run the following command:

vendor/bin/codecept -c path/to/codeception.yaml gherkin:steps suiteName

This will give you a table of all the steps available.
