Test plan documentation for Microsoft Test Manager plans


Don’t know how I missed this last month, but the test team has created a Power Tool that creates test plan documentation from test plans in Microsoft Test Manager. See http://blogs.msdn.com/vstsqualitytools/archive/2010/01/11/test-scribe-test-plan-documentation-for-mtlm-plans.aspx and http://blogs.msdn.com/vstsqualitytools/archive/2010/02/26/test-scribe-for-visual-studio-2010-rc-test-plan-document-generation.aspx for more info.

Here’s a brief description from the blog:

This tool allows users of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Beta 2 to generate a Word 2007-compatible Test Plan Document from their plan, suites, test cases, and other artifacts. . . . The resulting document will contain (among other things) a list [of] suites with test cases and steps detail and pie charts detailing the overall progress of your Test Plan.

    Hi,

    I am using Test Scribe. It runs fine for one test case but whenever I run it via Test Manager for the more than 1 executed Test Cases (lets say 10), I always get the following error:

    Running transformation: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.FieldDefinitionNotExistException: TF26027: A field definition Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Priority in the work item type definition file does not exist. Add a definition for this field or remove the reference to the field and try again.

  2. Hi Sandeela — Sorry to hear it's crashing. You can post questions on the Visual Studio Gallery site for Test Scribe. It's located here: visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/e79e4a0f-f670-47c2-9b8a-3b6f664bf4ae
