TFS
      #718671 - 10/24/12 07:49 AM

Hello all,
We are using TFS in my new job and it's been a while since I have used it and neither me or my QA Engineer can enter test steps. I have done some googling and have not really found a good answer as to why we cannot enter data. The other tabs, summary, tested requirements are open for us to enter data. I did see one answer on google where it said MTM is needed to enter test cases there and then upload to TFS?? Any help would be appreciated as the TFS help is not much help.

Have you spoken to your TFS administrator? You probably have read-only access to your project.

Michael,

Are you trying to edit the test steps from Visual Studio? If yes, you can't do that. You should use Microsoft Test Manager to edit the test steps.

Refer this article.

To add manual test cases into your test plan, you must use Microsoft Test Manager. A test case is a work item; therefore, it can also be viewed and edited like any other work item from Visual Studio. However, to edit the test steps, you must use Microsoft Test Manager.

I am trying to create a new test step altogether, not just edit existing ones.

Sorry I wasn't clear. You can't add/edit test steps from Visual Studio. You can only edit them from Microsoft Test Manager. Install MTM from the Visual Studio Installation disk & use that to add/edit the manual test steps.
