We are using Microsoft Test Manager 2015 Update 1. I created a couple of shared parameters to see how they work.

How do you delete them? I can make them inactive, but they still display in the list of available shared parameters. I don't see a delete button and when I searched online I found nothing about it.

  • shared parameters..Never heard about that in MSTM.Are you in to shared steps?

I assume you use Team Services with MTM. In that case, let us get the basics right.

Shared Steps are another Work Item Type and Work Items can manully be deleted using the command line tool.

I guess the above links would help you get started.

Note : I assumed certain things while writing the answer. Please let me know if my assumptions are wrong.
