Testing AutomationIoC PSCmdlets

Sample AutomationIoC PSCmdlet startup class

public class Startup : AutomationStartup
    // Add any configuration sources or data needed
    public override void Configure(HostBuilderContext hostBuilderContext, IConfigurationBuilder configurationBuilder)
        // AutomationEnvironment class allows retrieving global PowerShell
        // variables during service configuration.
        var environment =

        var appSettings = new Dictionary<string, string>()
            ["TestOptionsConfig:TestProperty"] = "This is an example",
            ["AppEnvironment"] = environment


    // Configure services/lifetimes
    public override void ConfigureServices(HostBuilderContext hostBuilderContext, IServiceCollection services)

        services.AddTransient<ITestDependencyOne, TestDependencyOne>();
        services.AddTransient<ITestDependencyTwo, TestDependencyTwo>();
        // ...
        // other services, client, etc.

Sample Automation PSCmdlet to test

[Cmdlet(VerbsLifecycle.Submit, "Data")]
public class SubmitData : AutomationShell<Startup>
    [Parameter(Mandatory = true)]
    public string Id { get; set; }

    protected ITestDependencyOne TestDependencyOne { get; set; }

    protected ITestDependencyTwo testDependencyTwo { get; set; }

    private ILogger<RequestCard> logger { get; set; }

    protected override void ProcessRecord()


        TestData testData = testDependencyTwo.GetTestData(Id);

        logger.LogInformation("Auto Generated Data: {Id} - {Name}", Id, testData.Name);


Sample Test

using AutomationIoC.PSCmdlets.Tools;
using FluentAssertions;
using Xunit;

public class RequestCardTests
    public void ShouldSubmitData()
        var testDependencyOneMock = new Mock<ITestDependencyOne>();
        var testDependencyTwoMock = new Mock<ITestDependencyTwo>();
        var testId = "ThisIsATestId";
        var expectedTestData = new TestData { Id = testId, Name = "ThisIsTestName" };

        testDependencyTwoMock.Setup(dependency =>

        // Creates inline context of the command under test
        using var submitDataCommand =
            AutomationSandbox.CreateContext<SubmitData, Startup>(services =>
                services.AddTransient(_ => testDependencyOneMock.Object);
                services.AddTransient(_ => testDependencyTwoMock.Object);

        submitDataCommand.AddParameter(command =>
            command.AddParameter("id", testId));

        var actualTestData = submitDataCommand.RunCommand<TestData>().First();
