How to generate multiple .trx (test results) files and publish them with custom names while using Team Build 2008


 

1.Inside your TFSBuil.Proj file overwrite the BeforeTestConfiguration target with something similar to the one below.

2. Specify the name of the test results files on 2 locations.

 

  • Inside the command line below – this will be the actual name of the file
  • Inside the *.testrunconfig file – this will be the test run name displayed on the build report

 

3. (Optional) Copy the test results files from the build folder to the drop folder.
