Microsoft Test Manager is primarily a tool for managing manual tests. The MTM test recordings can be exported to CodedUI then modified in Visual Studio, but they are not automated tests and should not be treated as such. If you have Microsoft Team Foundation Server configured to manage test environment virtual systems, you can configure MTM to run automated ...

I have figured out how to accomplish this and I will post it here since there has been a lot of views of the question but no answer. In test manager, select the Organize tab. Then select the Shared Steps Manager. Create a shared step and pace a parameter in it, e.g. '@Location', enter the URL you wish to navigate to in the parameter at the bottom of the ...

I use Microsoft Test Manager and find that I center my test plans around releases. It might be helpful to have a separate Regression Test Plan with suites set up by product area that can be updated as code updates and so new test cases can be added as new features are implemented in existing product areas (or new product areas are added). There is some ...

For that, you need to create a clone of the test case, for that you may use the following steps Go the test case and right click on it. Click on Create Copy and add to suite option in the list. Make the change if you want (Here you can modify test case independently without affecting other). Click on Save and Close. Now drag and drop that test case to ...

If it is an Angular application I would go for Protractor EDIT: Protractor was made for Angular Apps. You don't have deal with elements not being visible yet due to page loads. Protractors deals with it for you As far as I know CodedUI des not provide this functionality. Correct me if I'm wrong. Resource reason: Most Angular projects are javascript ...

If you are a programmer you need Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise which is $5,999/user/first year and includes Team Foundation Server online access & Microsoft Test Manager stand alone app. Anyone doing just QA and no programming can use Visual Studio Test Professional which will cost your company less $2,169/user/first year and only includes Team ...

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 ...

As I understand it (I'm not that experienced with MSTest/Test Manager yet), without the Lab Management module the way to do this is to install SysInternals to each of your target environments as well as your master/controller environment, then use a batch file that runs the tests. The basic setup is a batch file to run the tests - you can call MSTest from ...

1. Visual Studio 2010: Three products provide testing functionality in Visual Studio 2010: Visual Studio Test Professional: This is primarily for the generalist tester who wants to create manual test cases, run these tests and view the results as part of a test plan. The key application is MTM. Visual Studio 2010 Premium: This provides the features to ...

Regardless of the method you use to generate your request date, you're going to need to do this somewhat dynamically. The simplest method is in the code to test each scenario, you do a call to get the current date, and then add or subtract days from it. You don't really care what precise date gets used in the request so much as that the response is what you ...

A lot. The last I heard, MTM will be deprecated once the test-specific functionality of the TFS web portal is available. Create backlog items (in TFS) - the UI is a lot better, and there's been a lot of improvement to backlog item management and iteration management. Create tasks (in TFS) - see above. Design test cases (in TFS, VS, or MTM) - the TFS UI is ...

Yes. You provide values for the parameters in the test cases where the shared steps are used. You don’t have to provide values in the shared steps definition. However, you can provide one default row of values, which is used when you create an action recording of a standalone shared step.

You can simply create a new work item type called "Test", and customise it to have the fields you require. You will need to add fields like Result (Not Run, Passed, Failed, In Progress etc), Tested by, Date executed and Tested in Build, etc. You will need to make these fields reportable in the data warehouse, and build some status reports. Once you have ...

You've actually got several options here. The key is that Microsoft Test Manager has to integrate with Team Foundation Server: if you can connect your Selenium tests to Team Foundation Server you can use the Associated Automation field in the test case to link your Selenium test code to MTM test cases. Team Foundation Server plugin for Eclipse: this is an ...

Have you looked into TestComplete? We use it at my company and have found it to be very versatile and the SmartBear folks are excellent to work with. http://smartbear.com/product/testcomplete/features/

There are a few ways to do this, one would be: You could create your template list of test cases in an excel file and import them to TFS using http://tcmimport.codeplex.com/ You can also export an existing list to use with http://exporttfs2excel.codeplex.com/ Another way would be to create copies of the test cases.

The added features from 2010 to 2013 are listed in this blogpost. I don't find anything relevant to the 2015 edition, so it's possible that they didn't update a lot of functionalities, or the documentation is poor or hidden somewhere. On this MSDN page however, you can switch between the 2015 version and older ones.

The Team section on excel will allow you to connect to and export any TFS query you have access to. Queries will work against any TFS object that has a base type of Work Item. Since a requirements-based test suite uses (in the Scrum template) Product Backlog Items and Defects to define requirements, you need to build a query in TFS that includes linked work ...

I don't see the "Description" named column under Column Options via List View or Grid View. If the column is not listed under Column Options > Available Columns, then the column name does not exist as a default column name. Perhaps it is a custom column added by someone on your team. I would use Title & Step Actions columns to display any needed ...

There could be a number of other ways but the best I could found is to follow these steps: Launch MTM and navigate to "Analyze Test Runs". Select tests based on "View" and "Start date range". Use Ctrl+c to copy the records. Open Excel and use Ctrl+v to paste the records. You should be able to select additional columns by right clicking the header row ...

There are two options to do this. When you enter a requirement in the “Requirements” module, you can link it to a test through “Test Coverage” sub module, provided a relevant test exists. When you write a test in the “Test Plan” module, you can link it to a requirement through “Req Coverage” sub module, provided a relevant requirement exists.

You have two main options. A quick web search about JIRA TFS integration returns several connectors, most requiring payment. If your version of TFS is supported by the connectors, that would be your best option, because you would automatically get the MTM integration. If your version of TFS is not supported, or your organization is not willing to purchase ...

This isn't possible without some serious messing around with the TFS API right now. Part of the problem is that internally test cases are stored as work items where test plans and test results are stored in completely different parts of the system with complex relationship structures. As a result, the built in query engine can't access them. https://...

My favorite test management tool is Test Rail. This is a web based test management solution. I've found it to be easy to create and modify multiple test plans and tests. It also integrates with TFS and Visual Studio ( I don't have first hand experience with that however. We are a Atlassian/GIT shop). It is easy to generate test reports and custom test runs ...

Yes, you can do this, but you may not want to. The only method I know of to use MTM test case parameters in Coded UI is to retrieve them via the TFS API - which is rather less simple than it appears. There's more information about doing this available here: http://blogs.infosupport.com/accessing-test-case-parameters-in-an-associated-automation/ Caveat: ...

No, you will not be able to do this using MTM only i.e. using the MTM functionality you can't feed your test cases with external sources like an Excel/CSV etc, atleast till version 2013 this functionality is not available. MTM is just a simple recorder which has been designed and provided to help manual tester to ease and accelerate their job of manual ...

First, I want to tell you that MTM offers a very limited functionality for automating the test cases. It has been designed just to ease and accelerate the test execution job manual testers or you can say its purpose is to increase the speed and number of iterations of manual test cases, which can work by simple record and playback. Now, coming to your issue....


1

As far as I know (and I used MTM) about MTM, it seems not feasible with the record and playback feature of MTM. This is just a simple recorder which has been designed and provided to help manual tester to ease and accelerate their job of manual testing. All validations (Pass/Fail) still needs to done manually by the tester. If you want to go further in ...

First you need to create your test cases in MTM and enter values for the parameters in the Parameters section of the test cases (I guess this you have already achieved). Now, you move to the 'Test' tab of your MTM and select the child tab 'Run Tests', add your test suite to be executed to this tab (if not already added). Then, when you click the 'Run' ...
