  • managing Test plans require higher Visual Studio edition and therefore you need to  change access level group to Advanced or VS Enterprise  assuming the user does have the license.

  • Hi,

    Could you specify what error did you get when you created Test Plan?

    Full access to the Test hub requires Advanced (TFS 2015) or VS Enterprise (TFS 2017) access. Check: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/security/access-levels

    Also, the user may need "manage test plan" permission under Area Path, check:

  • Hi,

    Where should the user with Visual Studio Test professional license be added to (Basic or VS Enterprise on TFS 2017)?

    Should the VS Test Pro license holders be eligible to create Test Plans on TFS 2017?

    Thanks & Regards
