Pygradle is used to build and test a Python project. In gradle it is possible to define a minimum code coverage percentage:

jacocoTestCoverageVerification {
    violationRules {
        rule {
            limit {
                minimum = 0.5

        rule {
            enabled = false
            element = 'CLASS'
            includes = ['org.gradle.*']

            limit {
                counter = 'LINE'
                value = 'TOTALCOUNT'
                maximum = 0.3

If this limit is not reached, build will fail. Is it possible to define a minimum code coverage using Pygradle?

When the above snippet is run, the build fails and the following is returned:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Build file '/home/user/SomeProject/build.gradle' line: 14

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating root project 'SomeProject'.
> Could not find method jacocoTestCoverageVerification() for arguments [build_fsdafasdfsa] on root project 'SomeProject' of type org.gradle.api.Project.

* Try:
Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

At the moment it looks like it is not possible to define a minimum code coverage as the ticket that was created is still open https://github.com/linkedin/pygradle/issues/184
