Thanks a lot Bruno,

If thatz the case can i have one module level fixture which calls the
configurationBackup method and for the function level backup instead of
writing another fixture can i use the pytest hook
pytest_runtest_call to call the configurationBackup method.. ?

Which is the correct and advantageous approach?

You can use the "request" fixture to obtain the module object and then call
the common_configuration from there:

def module_config(request):

"request.module" here will be each "test.py" module.
