Associate MTM test cases with automation

Recently while working on a project  I encountered an issue with MTM not able to associate with automation.

Association of test case to automation is well explained in this article :

I couldn't associate automation because :

1)  I didnt see ellipses (...) at all in MTM ( under 'Associated Automation' tab ). 

~ So I moved to Visual studio and ran my query to open test cases. I could see ellipse button under 'Associated Automation'.

2) On click it just brings a blank modal window. I do not see any tests in "Choose Test" window".

~ I have a solution opened from TFS.

~ I was able to successfully build them and have the dlls created.

~ But, when I clicked the ellipses (...) in the Associate Automation, I don't see any tests.

Well reason for such behaviour is : Project that I created was NOT test Project type. I created a class library project while i was re-factoring my code.

Simple fix for this problem is make this project as test type or manually modify <ProjectTypeGuids></ProjectTypeGuids>  to

    tests in "Choose Test" window? I have a solution opened from TFS, and it got a number of test projects. I was able to successfully built them and have the dlls created. But, when I clicked the ellipses (…) in the Associate Automation, I don't see any tests. But, my collegue can see them!!!

    Sorry for delayed response. I will have to debug your solution file.

    Hello Rajesh,

    Thanks for your post. I am also facing the same issue. I have tests which are developed using selenium and nunit (project type is class library). I tried to map these test to MTM test I am getting blank window. I am not able to see <ProjectTypeGuids> tag in my .csproj file. But I have added a new tag.

    But still I am unable to see the tests. Am I missing any thing here. Please help me if any thing missing.

    Once you have entered correct guids for test project, you just need to build your solution and then you will see results in Associated automation window
