Unit testing of OPAL/DataSHIELD installation

Hi, as a beginner I find the installation of a DataShield cluster not straightforward. I wonder whether a unit testing script checking the functioning of the required components with references to relevant online documentation may be useful for noobs?

The dsBaseClient testthat unit tests can be used to exercise a deployment of dsBaseClient on an Opal server. The major inconvenience is installing the 32 test datasets (a single script could be developed soon).

Thanks, 32 test datasets (!) sound like an overkill though. I was thinking about a basic check of the installed software components (OPAL, R, MySQL, ROCK, …) to get started, and not necessarily testing each DataSHIELD function.
