Controller Test Class

I'm having problems getting any coverage to my test class.  I'm not sure what I'm missing.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Controller
public class ExecFinController {

  public ExecFinController(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {

    }
	public Flow.Interview.BI_Executive_Finance_Flow myFlow { get; set; }
    
	public PageReference getOID() { 
        
  	Schema.DescribeSObjectResult result = BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c.SObjectType.getDescribe(); 
        
  	PageReference pageRef = new PageReference('/' + result.getKeyPrefix() + '/o'); 
  	pageRef.setRedirect(true); 
        
  	return pageRef; 
}
}
Visualforce Page
 
<apex:page StandardController="BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c" extensions="ExecFinController" TabStyle="BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c">
    <flow:interview name="BI_Executive_Finance_Flow" finishLocation="{!OID}"/>
</apex:page>

Test Class
@isTest(SeeAllData=true)
private class BIExecFinControllerTest 
{

    public static testmethod void ExecFin()
    {
        
        Date currentDate = date.today();
   
                      
      BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c exec = new BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c();
        exec.Period__c = 'Monthly';
        exec.Amount_for_Period__c = 100;
        exec.Period_Begins_On__c = currentDate;
        exec.Business_Unit_Text__c = 'Test Unit';
        exec.Period_Metric__c = 'Test';
        insert exec; 
        
        Test.startTest();
        
        List<BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c> fin = new List<BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c>();
                
        ApexPages.Standardcontroller stdexec = new ApexPages.Standardcontroller(exec);
        ExecFinController controller = new ExecFinController(stdexec);
        
        PageReference FlowPageRef = Page.BI_Financial_Dashboard;
    	Test.setCurrentPage(FlowPageRef);
        
        Test.stopTest();
     
     
    }
    
}

Hi,

You really cannot do this.  If you are calling the Flow from a VisualForce page, you can still call the VF page from the test class but it pretty much stops there.  You cannot call a Flow from a test class yet.  If the Flow is supposed to return a variable or similar then best you can do is kind of "fudge" the test class so the coverage succeeds but you really aren't "testing" anything.

 

I just opened a Developer case on this earlier this week and this was the solution the SalesForce Developer came up with to incresase my coverage.  I had a variable (AccountID) that was being returned from the Flow.  We couldn't test if it was the correct Account ID since we cannot call a Flow so all he did was create an Account in the test class and confirm that an Account was created.  So it was a "fudge" for now.

Hope this helps.

Please try below code. I hope that will help you
@isTest
private class BIExecFinControllerTest 
{
    public static testmethod void ExecFin()
    {
        Date currentDate = date.today();
                     
		BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c exec = new BI_Executive_Financial_Dashboard__c();
        exec.Period__c = 'Monthly';
        exec.Amount_for_Period__c = 100;
        exec.Period_Begins_On__c = currentDate;
        exec.Business_Unit_Text__c = 'Test Unit';
        exec.Period_Metric__c = 'Test';
        insert exec; 
        
        Test.startTest();
        
			ApexPages.Standardcontroller stdexec = new ApexPages.Standardcontroller(exec);
			ExecFinController controller = new ExecFinController(stdexec);
			controller.getOID();
		
        Test.stopTest();
     
     
    }
    
}

2) http://amitsalesforce.blogspot.in/2015/06/best-practice-for-test-classes-sample.html
Please follow below salesforce Best Practice for Test Classes :-

1. Test class must start with @isTest annotation if class class version is more than 25
2. Test environment support @testVisible , @testSetUp as well
3. Unit test is to test particular piece of code working properly or not .
4. Unit test method takes no argument ,commit no data to database ,send no email ,flagged with testMethod keyword .
5. To deploy to production at-least 75% code coverage is required
6. System.debug statement are not counted as a part of apex code limit.
7. Test method and test classes are not counted as a part of code limit
9. We should not focus on the  percentage of code coverage ,we should make sure that every use case should covered including positive, negative,bulk and single record .
Single Action -To verify that the the single record produces the correct an expected result .
Bulk action -Any apex record trigger ,class or extension must be invoked for 1-200 records .
Positive behavior : Test every expected behavior occurs through every expected permutation , i,e user filled out every correctly data and not go past the limit .
Negative Testcase :-Not to add future date , Not to specify negative amount.
Restricted User :-Test whether a user with restricted access used in your code .10. Test class should be annotated with @isTest .
11 . @isTest annotation with test method  is equivalent to testMethod keyword .
12. Test method should static and no void return type .
13. Test class and method default access is private ,no matter to add access specifier .
14. classes with @isTest annotation can't be a interface or enum .
15. Test method code can't be invoked by non test request .
16. Stating with salesforce API 28.0 test method can not reside inside non test classes .
17. @Testvisible annotation to make visible private methods inside test classes.
18. Test method can not be used to test web-service call out . Please use call out mock .
19. You can't  send email from test method.
20.User, profile, organization, AsyncApexjob, Corntrigger, RecordType, ApexClass, ApexComponent ,ApexPage we can access without (seeAllData=true) .
21. SeeAllData=true will not work for API 23 version eailer .
22. Accessing static resource test records in test class e,g List<Account> accList=Test.loadData(Account,SobjectType,'ResourceName').
23. Create TestFactory class with @isTest annotation to exclude from organization code size limit .
24. @testSetup to create test records once in a method  and use in every test method in the test class .
25. We can run unit test by using Salesforce Standard UI,Force.com IDE ,Console ,API.
26. Maximum number of test classes run per 24 hour of period is  not grater of 500 or 10 multiplication of test classes of your organization.
27. As apex runs in system mode so the permission and record sharing are not taken into account . So we need to use system.runAs to enforce record sharing .
28. System.runAs will not enforce user permission or field level permission .
29. Every test to runAs count against the total number of DML issued in the process .

Thanks for the information Amit Chaudhary, but I am still receiving 0% coverage probably due to what Swayam mentioned.  There must be some way to write a test for a controller that calls a visualflow.  I am unable to deploy because of the coverage.  I'll keep researching.
