How to maintain a pool of users with PyTest & Selenium?

I am trying to maintain a pool of Users with a parameter of availability so that PyTest can pick an available user from the list.

But I cannot figure out where to place it such that even on running multiple tests, the object doesn’t get destroyed.

My User pool looks like this:

class User:

    def getId()

    def getPwd()

    def getAvailability()

Basically, I want to configure PyTest so that before starting every test, it takes the available user from the pool and changes it’s status to False.

Any help in configuring the conftest.py would be helpful.

might I didn’t get your question correctly, but first idea was like that:

import pytest


class UsersFactory:
    _pool = [{"user": "user1", "status": True}, {"user": "user2", "status": True}, {"user": "user3", "status": True},
             {"user": "user4", "status": True}]
    _user = None

    @classmethod
    def get_user(cls):
        cls._user = cls._pool.pop(0)
        return cls._user

    @classmethod
    def back_user(cls):
        cls._user['status'] = False
        cls._pool.append(cls._user)
        cls._user = None


@pytest.fixture
def user():
    yield UsersFactory.get_user()
    UsersFactory.back_user()


def test_smth(user):
    print(user)
    assert user['status']


def test_smth2(user):
    print(user)
    assert user['status']

you can set scope to fixture, that your user will be set each test, function, class, package
