Within TFS, for each test run that is recorded, a run build number must be supplied.
This allows you to find the test runs quickly based on the build number.
Important: If your TestArchitect installation
is integrated with Visual Studio Team Services, formerly known as Visual Studio Online, be

governed by a user-specified domain of values. That is, any build number supplied from TestArchitect must first exist in Visual Studio Team
Services's list of allowable build numbers.

- Option 1 - When kicking off a test from TestArchitect: Through TestArchitect's Execute Test dialog
- Option 2 - When manually uploading a TestArchitect
test result to TFS: Through the Select Location dialog box that
- Option 3 - During execution: Within the TestArchitect test procedure code, by means of the
assign result field built-in action. (Learn more.)
