API tests fail in github actions, but pass locally

I just added my first API tests to my redwood project, and they pass locally but fail when I run them on github actions.

This is my action config:

name: Run RW Tests

on:
  push:
    branches: [ "main" ]
  pull_request:
    branches: [ "main" ]
    
env:
  DB_URL: postgresql://postgres:postgres@localhost:5432/postgres
  CLERK_API_KEY: <redacted>
  CLERK_FRONTEND_API_URL: <redacted>
  CLERK_JWT_KEY: <redacted>


jobs:
  build:

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

    strategy:
      matrix:
        node-version: [14.x, 16.x]
        # See supported Node.js release schedule at https://nodejs.org/en/about/releases/
        
    services:
      # Label used to access the service container
      postgres:
        # Docker Hub image
        image: postgres
        # Provide the password for postgres
        env:
          POSTGRES_PASSWORD: postgres
        # Set health checks to wait until postgres has started
        options: >-
          --health-cmd pg_isready
          --health-interval 10s
          --health-timeout 5s
          --health-retries 5
        ports:
          # Maps tcp port 5432 on service container to the host
          - 5432:5432

    steps:
    - uses: actions/checkout@v3
    - name: Use Node.js ${{ matrix.node-version }}
      uses: actions/setup-node@v3
      with:
        node-version: ${{ matrix.node-version }}
    - run: yarn install
    - run: yarn rw build
    - run: yarn rw test --no-watch

and this is the error the tests fail with:

 TypeError: Cannot redefine property: __RESOLVED_TMP_DIR__

I tried running the tests locally with both node v14 and node v16, but they pass.

I saw a post on the Discord from someone with a similar issue here: Discord but it didn’t look like there was any resolution.

Any ideas about what I should look into next?

Update: I got this to work by running the api tests first, then the web tests:

Instead of - run: yarn rw test --no-watch, I put:

 - run: yarn rw test api --no-watch
 - run: yarn rw test web --no-watch

and now they pass.

I also tried reproducing this locally on a Docker env with GitHub - nektos/act: Run your GitHub Actions locally 🚀 , but the regular yarn rw test --no-watch also passed there.

I’m not able to spend more time looking into this at the moment, but hopefully this workaround helps anyone else who hits this issue.
