Enabling Test Case Management features in Team Foundation Server Web Access

 

Update: We have moved the test case management features for Web Access to Visual Studio Update 2.  

So when you install the latest CTP for Visual Studio Update 1 these test features will no longer be present. 

We plan to re-enable these features in the CTPs for Visual Studio Update 2.

For a final list of all the features in Visual Studio Update 1 please see the post:

Final CTP for Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 

 

 

************************************************************************************************************************************

Two of the features i listed in: Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 CTP were:

  • The ability to view and edit Test Cases in a test plan from Team Foundation Server web access
  • The ability to run manual test cases and file bugs from Team Foundation Server web access

Unfortunately the CTP build made available today Oct 8th doesn’t have the “Test” menu option for accessing these features.

Fortunately it is very easy to access these features…The button simply does a redirect to the URL:

http://TFS_Server/ProjectCollection/Team_Project/_testManagement

So all you need to do is add /_testManagement to the end of URL for Web Access and Presto!
