Microsoft Test Manager – Test Configurations & Test Cases

Duplication of tests for configurations does have a flow that you need to be aware of …

  • Test Configurations have to be set to active and selected in the Test Plan properties.
  • Test Configurations set up prior to creating test cases are automatically duplicated for each configuration assigned to the test plan.
    • Note: you have no ability to indicate which configurations affect which test cases. Therefore you will have to use the test case run status of “blocked”. If you leave “active” a tester would be able to run.

  • Adding a new test configurations to an existing Test Plan will not affect any existing Test Suites. ( I believe this is a bug and have reported it to Microsoft) However, if I add a new test suite and associate existing or new test cases to that suite all the Test Plan test configurations are used.

When I get an answer on whether this the correct behaviour or if there is a work around will post it.
