Best Way to organize tests in TFS
We’re doing things differently than the way I’m accustomed to, so I need help from those of you that have been using test manager in a scrum environment.
We used Quick Test pro, so we were able to create test cases under test plan and select the tests I was running in the test lab. Also, before we had iterations where QA would test everything in iteration 1 before developers delivered iteration 2, so we didn’t have multiple handoffs in iteration 1. The way we organized this was in the test plan we created folders for the functionality we were testing and in the test lab we created folders for each round of testing, under that we had a folder for each functionality, then put the test cases in the functionality folder (i.e. iteration 1, iteration2, etc.). This made it easy for us to see what was tested in each round of testing.
We use test manager, so the folder structure and the test cases in the test plan is what’s in the test run. Also since now we’re using sprints, we could have several handoffs in each sprint. This makes it difficult to see what we ran during each handoff. I can't seem to find a good way to see what was ran in each handoff.
I’m having a hard time picturing how to organize test manager. Can you please share ways that worked for you?
Thanks in advance.
You need to use MTM tool along with few TFS best practices. Add your test cases into proper iteration & area paths.
Using MTM, you need to create a plan for each execution with appropriate testcases. For example, for Iteration 2, you can choose the test cases related to Iteration 2 and Iteration 1 regression tests.
Yes this is how it can be especially when its about taking something to another level it can play a very important role.A lot of people has started doing things that are better at outcome so yeah it makes sense and can work for sure.
