You may want to look at TFS 2012. It now has a Kanban board in the tool. There is a preview version of the TFS service in the cloud available if you want to check it out. When I looked into it for TFS 2010, I was only able to find free Kanban tools that did not link to TFS, or paid ones like Urban Turtle that could actually integrate with TFS 2010.

TFS=Team Foundation Server. All things microsoft that require storage and integration get run through this. VS=Visual Studio. All things that are "visualized" are pushed through this. MTM=Microsoft Test manager. This manages all tests. So with this then TFS stores everything and synchronizes it. VS is a method to visualize things in order to interact ...

Just to add to Bruce's comments, if you are using VS2010 the "interactive" issues have been resolved in 2010 through the test agent/controller. As long as you have the right attributes on the tests and add the link to the automated test through MTM. The tests can be kicked off as part of the build or through the test controller/agent as a test plan and will ...

it might help someone. As My mistake assuming that visual Nunit will show the test in test View but it will show tests by selecting View-> otherwindows-> Visual Nunit. Then It will display all your tests. Also If you want to see all you nunit tests in test View just like mstest then you have to install nunit for VS.

You've actually answered your own question here: In Test Manager you put in a build you want to test against. So now all those test runs are tied to the build TFS is designed so that there must be a build associated to a test run. In order to keep test results but not the build itself, you have a couple of options: Create a "dummy" build to run ...

If the "development side of the house" is already using TFS, then you would be crazy to consider HPQC. Both HPQC and TFS use per seat licensing, and you will have to pay double. TFS is a true ALM solution that includes source control, developer work item tracking, build support and everything that the developers need to do their jobs, and in the later ...

We used to use TFS Workbench before we upgraded to TFS 2012. Its a Windows based application but used to work well.

You might take a look at this project on Codeplex for a WIP board that you could use in as a Kanban board. It appears to be process agnostic. It does not appear to have moved out of Beta 2 so I am not sure what the level of stability is or if it is getting any work done on it any longer. It does integrate with TFS 2010 though. Visual WIP ...

Perhaps no link with TFS, but consider to use Trello: it's free and worth it!

MS has several command line tools that will run tests. There's more information about how to use them and how to choose the tool you use on the MSDN site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182486.aspx I'd suggest reading the documentation and experimenting with the different tools to decide which of the tools works best for your situation.

The short answer is "yes". Some of the places you can look are Microsoft's Channel9 site, in the TechEd presentations. Some that I know are particularly useful are: Microsoft Test Manager - http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2013/DEV-B327#fbid=P-tUCSTcUQ5 Visual Studio Premium or higher includes the install for MTM. This video covers ...

I haven't used selenium RC with TFS but I have used WatiN a lot so I can share my experiences with that, and no Microsoft Test Manager. Firstly, what is your goal with Selenium RC is it to scale out your execution, or just use C# as your environment? Firstly I would look into Selenium 2, as opposed to Selenium RC to see if that fits your needs. For the ...

This was the second link on Google on TFS migration. The instructions seem fairly complete and straight forward. Good luck.

The dates for the burn down chart in excel for the Agile and CMMI templates are set by the date filters on the chart, you need to right click on the date column in the pivot table and then select the dates you want. For the new agile template, these dates are probably sourced from the start and finish dates on the sprint work item template.

I'm a little puzzled as to why you have two separate TFS servers. What was the reasoning behind this? That aside, your (or one of your developers) best route is to get to grips with the TFS API and code your way out of this situation. There are lots of examples for the API, this is one that should get you started. If your company are going to persist with ...

No, you do not have to write code. All you need to do is run your TFS in interactive mode, not in service mode because services are not allowed to open windows but watin doesn't work without a window. You'll find the settings on tab build configuration.

The selected tests in matching **\test.dll using setting from [where the WatiN tests are stored in Source Control] are going to be executed with MSTest, which is not compatible with watin. You can try to change the build template TFS uses to call your watin runtime instead of MSTest, but you'll have to create code

A couple of tips/best practices I can think of: It's probably a good idea to make your tests run as fast as possible. When you develop more and more tests the testrun quickly starts to take very long, this results in long builds which is ofcourse a bad thing. Therefore you should think about developing your tests in such a way that they can be run in ...
