How to find the test controllers registered with Team foundation server 2012?

Here are the steps you should follow to achieve this.

  • Copy the following contents to a power shell script file (say fqdn.ps1)

# Load the binaries

[Reflection.Assembly]::Load(“Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a”);
[Reflection.Assembly]::Load(“Microsoft.TeamFoundation.TestManagement.Client, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a”);

# Connect to  Tfs
$tfsCollectionUrl = “
$tfsCollection = [Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.TfsTeamProjectCollectionFactory]::GetTeamProjectCollection($tfsCollectionUrl);
$tcmService = $tfsCollection.GetService([Microsoft.TeamFoundation.TestManagement.Client.ITestManagementService]);
# Query for test controllers
$testControllers = $tcmService.TestControllers.Query();
foreach($testController in $testControllers)
    Write-Host “Name: “$testController.Name
    Write-Host ” “

  • Open a power shell command prompt which has Visual Studio 2012
  • Change the collection url to your collection url

$tfsCollectionUrl = “http://myserver:8080/tfs/mycollection”;

  • Copy the content of the script file and paste on the power shell prompt.

It should return you the names of the test controllers registered with your team foundation server.
