How to bind QA Tasks with Test cases and Test case results ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, we are using the TFS for project management including task management and test management.

    I have a query regarding the Test case result linking with the QA task.

    See on the Work --> Board view it's showing the backlog/bug items and their associated tasks. Now QA has developed some test cases and linked those test cases with the backlog/bug item. That linking is possible, but I am not sure once I execute those test cases how can I link the test results with the backlog/bug or with QA task ?

    For my project manager it's bit difficult to track what's the current situation of QA task !! how many test cases executed for the XYZ task and how many not.. 

    I hope I have explained it properly... 

    Can any one please help me on this ???

    Thanks in advance..

  • Hi,

    You can link test cases to your QA tasks using link type as Test Case or Tested By but you cannot link Test Result directly from Task work item. You need to open test result and then associate this QA task to test result.

    On the other hand, If you link like Task -> Test Cases then these test cases itself maintain their execution results in MTM.
