guideRunning tests without Docker

# Prerequisites

In order to run tests, the following software must be installed first:

From the CKEditor Ecosystem customer dashboard, download the software ZIP package that matches the downloaded Docker image. Unzip the package and go to the package root directory.

# Running tests

These steps allow you to verify if the application works correctly after the first run or an application update:

  1. Go to tests/.
  2. Run:
    pnpm install
  3. Run:
    APPLICATION_ENDPOINT=[your_app_endpoint] ENVIRONMENTS_MANAGEMENT_SECRET_KEY=[your_env_management_secret_key] npm run test
  4. If there are no errors after finishing the tests, the application is ready to use.


  • APPLICATION_ENDPOINT – An endpoint required to communicate with CKEditor Cloud Services On-Premises.
  • ENVIRONMENTS_MANAGEMENT_SECRET_KEY– A variable set in the CKEditor Cloud Services On-Premises configuration.
  • There is a possibility that some test will not pass. In this case please run the tests again.
  • You can run the tests from the server where CKEditor Cloud Services On-Premises is installed by setting APPLICATION_ENDPOINT=http://localhost[:application_http_port] or from a remote machine by setting APPLICATION_ENDPOINT=https://your.external.address.
