#41463 accepted enhancement

Improve REST API tests that don't perform any assertions

Reported by: johnbillion Owned by: johnbillion
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.7
Component: REST API Keywords: needs-unit-tests
Focuses: rest-api Cc:


There are a bunch of REST API tests that don't perform any assertions. This creates noise in the test results as they get marked as risky tests.

These tests are present because their test class extends the abstract WP_Test_REST_Controller_Testcase class, which requires several methods to be implemented which don't make sense for all REST API routes.

These tests can be improved so they do actually perform assertions related to their behaviour.
