[pytest-dev] Fixtures and test cases parametrization -- the clever way

Thank you for this great lib!
I have an app that takes a config file with key/value pairs, that I would
like to test thoroughly, i.e all possible combinations of parameters in the
config file. I thought about taking advantage of the fixture
parametrization functionality pytest provides, but not sure how... and end
up with what I believe is a silly idea (please see example code below). I
say silly because I will end up with a huge amount of *.mark.parametrize()*
entries and the test case function with a number of arguments... Any idea
on how to do this an elegant way?
@pytest.mark.parametrize("key1", [0, 1, etc, etc])
@pytest.mark.parametrize("key2", [2, 3, etc, etc, etc])
@pytest.mark.parametrize("key3", [4, 5, etc, etc, etc, etc])
... # an infinitiy amount of @pytest.mark.parametrize("keyN", [bla, bla,
*def* test_app_param_combination(key1, key2, key3, ....)
# implementation of the test
# run app with combination of key/value pair and check exit code
*assert* app_exit_code == 0
