Pass DATABASE_OPTIONS to regressiontests/admin_scripts tests

Reported by: ramiro Owned by: ramiro
Component: Testing framework Version: master
Severity: Keywords: regressiontests admin_scripts DATABASE_OPTIONS

Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

The tests in tests/regressiontests/admin_scripts involve the creation of a number of settings files. Currently, only the values of the DATABASE_ENGINE, DATABASE_NAME, DATABASE_USER, DATABASE_PASSWORD, DATABASE_HOST, DATABASE_PORT and ROOT_URLCONF settings are copied from the user-provided settings.

The DB backends included with Django don't need additional settings to be able to run such tests under a complete DB environment but for other (external) backends some additional information might be needed.

In the case of django-pyodbc, historically DATABASE_ODBC_DRIVER and DATABASE_ODBC_DSN have been examples of such settings (they allow to configure some ODBC-related values). Providing default values for them in the backend isn't a always a complete solution and asking Django to preserve their values is out of question because it would be non-generic. What could be done instead is: a) ask for the DATABASE_OPTIONS setting to be preserved (that's what this ticket is all about) and b) in the backend side: Gradually migrate these settings to DATABASE_OPTIONS.
