[python-uk] Issue with unit tests in IntelliJ IDEA

I’ve been working on contributing to an open source project and have gotten to the stage where I’m writing my tests but I’ve run into a bit of an issue around a unit test I’ve written. Namely that the unit test won’t run and I receive the following error:

utrunner.py: error: unrecognized arguments: /Users/me/dev/IdeaProjects/dynamic-dynamodb/dynamic_dynamodb/test_scaling_metrics.py true

I’ve had a look on Google and StackOverflow but I couldn’t find the answer anywhere. My test contains imports for the modules I need, a class containing all of my tests in methods, and the standard entry point:

if __name__ == '__main__':

If anyone has any ideas as to what’s going on please let me know and if any further information is required I’d be happy to answer.
