defaults section in YAML group settings does not support settings sub-section
|Target version:||Current Sprint|
There are a lot of cases when you have some set of test suite settings which applicable for whole job group . so it would be nice if I can write :
and then all test suites added to this job group will have VAR1
You can currently achieve shared settings via aliasing eg.
- foo: &mysettings settings: SPAM: eggs - foo: *mysettings
That said, it would make sense to allow
defaults and merge them into scenarios the same way it's already allowed for

it for sure became better , thanks ! but I didn't get why after all settings end up under arch ? and not one level above ?
initially I was thinking about something like :
defaults: aarch64: machine: aarch64 priority: 50 settings: DESKTOP: textmode EXTRATEST: wicked KEEP_GRUB_TIMEOUT: '1' VIDEOMODE: text WICKED_TCPDUMP: '1' VIRTIO_CONSOLE_NUM: '2' x86_64: machine: 64bit priority: 50
but I need to duplicate variables under each arch ( I know that I can use variables but it was not the point of this ticket ). I see use case which you was trying to cover with having arch specific variables . But is it possible to have settings in two layers ? with the flow that more specific override more generic
Remember to make a space before blocks and lists in markdown ;-)
The default settings map to architectures the same way machine and priority do... so what you're suggesting is inconsistent with how the rest of the definition works, since you place a defaults key in place of an architecture. At least I'd be careful to introduce special-cases like that, if for example using aliases you just need two extra lines to do the same.
