Description

Motivation

We want to modify profiles during the run and it is required for SLE15, as we need to put at least url and regcode in the registration section for most of the scenarios.
At the moment, we use static profiles and only in scenarios with support server we expand some variables. However, this mechanism is not flexible enough and allows only static mapping.

With this ticket we should use functionality implemented here: https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/27076

Some of the profiles became pretty different, but some still can use common base.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: DONE Adjust tests to use autoinst profiles as template and inject registration section according to the architecture and build number
  • AC2: Try to reuse the templates we have for SLE12, but modifying them according to the version
  • AC3: DONE Use {{variable}} syntax for variables in the template, as it's done for profiles in aytests repository

Tasks

  • identify profiles which are same, except registration and sections (e.g. mini.xml)
  • use the same profile template and adjust them on-the-fly based on SLE version for profiles from the task above
  • use same test suite for SLE15 and SLE12

We have AC1 and AC3 done. Still missing is to use the same profile template and adjust them on-the-fly based on SLE version.

riafarov please refine with more specific suggestions what to do in the next step.

SLE15 profiles differ too much from SLE12, which was not know from the beginning. Discussed with riafarov that remaining step here is to evaluate possible better solution for xml profiles.
