assertIsNotNone() in Python is a unittest library function that is used in unit testing to check that input value is not None. This function will take two parameters as input and return a boolean value depending upon assert condition. If input value is not equal to None assertIsNotNone() will return true else return false.

Syntax: assertIsNotNone(testValue, message)

Parameters: assertIsNotNone() accept two parameters which are listed below with explanation:

  • testValue:  test variable as the input value to check equality with None
  • message: a string sentence as a message which got displayed when the test case got failed.

Listed below are two different examples illustrating the positive and negative test case for given assert function:

Example 1: Negative Test case

Python3




# unit test case
import unittest
  
class TestMethods(unittest.TestCase):
    # test function 
    def test_negative(self):
        firstValue = None
        # error message in case if test case got failed
        message = "Test value is none."
        # assertIsNotNone() to check that if input value is not none
        self.assertIsNotNone(firstValue, message)
  
if __name__ == '__main__':
    unittest.main()

Output:

F

    self.assertIsNotNone(firstValue, message)
AssertionError: unexpectedly None : Test value is none.

FAILED (failures=1)


Example 2: Positive Test case

Python3




# unit test case
import unittest
  
class TestMethods(unittest.TestCase):
    # test function 
    def test_positive(self):
        firstValue = "geeks"
        # error message in case if test case got failed
        message = "Test value is  none."
        # assertIsNotNone() to check that if input value is not none
        self.assertIsNotNone(firstValue, message)
  
if __name__ == '__main__':
    unittest.main()

Output:
