Microsoft Test Manager–configurations


I’ve been asked about the managing of test configurations. In the sample below I have two test configurations set up as I add test cases they are automatically assigned both test configurations.

You can have multiple test configurations set to be the default. Which means all test cases are assigned these default configurations.


When I click on a Test Case then the icon Configurations I can override the default and remove one or both configurations from the selected test case.

You can select all your test cases in a test suite (using the std Microsoft selection hotkey) and then click Configurations to update a bunch at once.

I just added a new configuration named My Added Configuration. When I select the test case and click Configurations the Select Test Configurations opens. I then have to click All configurations and my view looks like display below:


If you do not click All configurations you will not see the newly added configuration(s). It’s a trick I know why not just show them all. Hey, were tester’s we should be enjoying the challenge!

Hope this help ..
