Is there a way to unit test tasks where
returns a coroutine? I tried this:
from prefect_aws.s3 import s3_upload
with prefect_test_harness():
my_upload = s3_upload.fn(bucket=S3_BUCKET_NAME, key='B5_key', data=b'55555', aws_credentials = AwsCredentials())
But it’s not working with this runtime error:
Copy code
E           RuntimeError: There is no active flow or task run context.

../valo-prefect-poc/.venv/lib/python3.7/site-packages/prefect/logging/ RuntimeError

Probably not important since I can always wrap in a
- mostly just curious. 😛

Yeah I’ve been looking and it seems that the task library tests just wrap in a test flow like this. I don’t think this can be done
But I’ll also ask some team members to be sure. I’ll let you know when I get a response
gratitude thank you 1

Hm… you should be able to test the underlying function still
Ah including the full traceback is important
Copy code
Traceback (most recent call last):

    raise RuntimeError("There is no active flow or task run context.")
RuntimeError: There is no active flow or task run context.
This is because the task uses a logger
We’ll likely find a way to allow run loggers to be retrieved during testing without throwing an exception
