Mapping TA test cases to TFS test cases

Mappings, or links, between TFS test cases and their counterparts in TA allow for the execution of TestArchitect tests to be initiated from MTM. These mappings are established automatically whenever test assets are exchanged (imported and uploaded) between TA and TFS. They may also be established manually, by you, as discussed in this topic.

You must have taken the following steps before you can map TestArchitect test cases with TFS test cases:
  1. In the TestArchitect explorer tree, right-click the Test node, a test folder node, or a test module node containing the test cases to be mapped.
  2. Select External Tool > Visual Studio > Map Test Cases .
  3. In the Map Test Cases to Microsoft Test Manager dialog box, for each test case that you wish to have mapped to a TFS test case, enter the TFS test case ID into the Source column, then click OK.

    • Each TFS source ID can only be mapped to a single TestArchitect test case.
    • If the TFS source ID has been mapped to another TestArchitect test case, that source ID is highlighted in red.
    Fastpath: Alternatively, you can also quickly map a TestArchitect test case to a TFS test cases in the Information tab of the TestArchitect test case.

  4. Click OK.
