I am using Visual Studio Code, Protractor, Typescript and Jasmine to build test cases fro Angular website. I need to pick test data from Team Foundation server(TFS) only. It was possible in Coded UI with Visual studio. Just wondering if its possible in case of Protractor as well.

  • Hi how are you accessing tfs data , as from cucumber data driven is achieved through scenario outline which doesn't support external files . But in step definition you can implement any logic.

  • Step definition is the protractor code

  • Hi, I am unable to access data from TFS using Protractor as of now and finding a way to do that. You are right from Step definition I can access the data from scenarios outline, however wondering if test data can be fetched from TFS (since TFS contains my automation test cases data) using Jasmine/Protractor. Any thoughts?

TSF exposes HTTP endpoints from which you can fetch data.

You can find examples here and here.
