How Do I Force a Parameter to Map in a Manual Test So That I Can Use It in a Coded UI Test? Are Mapping of Links as Parameters Troublesome? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wish to data drive a coded ui script from the test case in MTM, but one parameter will not map.  Is there a way to force this mapping?  I've tried recording several times without luck.

    More information:  The object that will not map to a parameter is a link in a table.  I can create asserts for this object, but just cannot get the parameter in the manual test case to "take" while capturing an action recording.

    Any help would be appreciated!

  • Does anyone have any helpful tidbits?  This seems like a bug where links cannot be parametrized.  Thoughts?
