This is an example of a dotnet core consumer using Pact to create a consumer driven contract, and sharing it via PactFlow.
It is using a private tenant on PactFlow. The latest version of the Example Consumer/Example Provider pact is published here.
The project uses a Makefile to simulate a very simple build pipeline with two stages - test and deploy.
- Run tests (including the pact tests that generate the contract)
- Publish pacts, tagging the consumer version with the name of the current branch
- Check if we are safe to deploy to prod (ie. has the pact content been successfully verified)
- Deploy (only from master)
- Deploy app (just pretend for the purposes of this example!)
- Tag the deployed consumer version as 'prod'
- A PactFlow account
- A read/write API Token from your PactFlow account
- .NET 6.x installed. You can install it from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/install/macos
See the PactFlow CI/CD Workshop.
The below commands are designed for a Linux/OSX environment, please translate for use on Windows/PowerShell as necessary:
Please ensure the following environment variables have been exported in the process that you run the tests (generally a terminal):
export PACT_BROKER_TOKEN=<your pactflow read/write token here>
export PACT_BROKER_BASE_URL=https://<your pactflow subdomain>.pactflow.io
Usually, you would integrate this into a real CI system (such as Buildkite/Jenkins/CircleCI etc., or Travis as this repository is built against).
You can simulate a CI process with the following command:
