Automating Tests using Visual Studio Test Professional

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use Visual Studio Test Professional to interact with Team Foundation Server to:
- Create and manage test plans.
- Create, author, and maintain manual and automated test cases.
- Manage the association of automation for test case artifacts.
- Run exploratory tests.
- Analyze previous manual, automated, or exploratory test runs.
- File rich actionable bugs while executing manual test runs or from automated test runs.
- Create and provide individual or shared lab environments with multiple machines for development or testing with Lab Management.
- Connect to physical or virtual lab environments for development or testing with Lab Management.
- Facilitate structured User Acceptance Testing (UAT) from business users.
- And lots more…
  • The debugger is extremely good.
  • There are many valuable features, including the integration between the management data and the test cases.
  • The unit testing functionality is very helpful.
  • The solution needs more reports and more dashboards, as well as more details for each originated spare test case or best guess in test cases.
  • The service right now is far too expensive. You need to pay per user.
  • The tools for unit testing can be improved, giving a better ability to manage tests.
You have the ability to link them with the requirements and user stories. You also have the ability to track the running of test cases and the reporting of the results of each test case. You are able to send some reports via dashboard control to see the status of the overall testing across specific requirements or specific user stories. It enables us to connect the bugs and the cases to the requirements.

Recording and automating tests sessions in a Visual Studio environment

Score 7 out of 10

It was used to manage manual and automated tests in a software development project using C#, Visual Studio. With Test Professional, the QA team could use a lot of Microsoft test features, without the need for a high-cost Visual Studio Enterprise license for each tester. It allows full integration with the SCRUM artifacts and product backlog management through Microsoft TFS.
  • Creation and handling of test plans and test cases.
  • Full integration with Microsoft Team Foundation Server, including Agile or Scrum templates.
  • Recording and automation of tests in Internet Explorer or Windows desktop environments.
  • Test Manager became outdated and can be fully substituted by Microsoft TFS features most of the time.
Test Professional will work better if the software has been tested on a Windows desktop or Internet Explorer. If you have Microsoft TFS, the reasons to use Test Professional are to record test sessions, automate tests and reduce the cost of QA team Visual Studio licenses.

VSTP aka Visual Studio Test Professional aka Very Stupendous Testing Product

At my company we program and test our entire product in Visual Studios. We write medical software for doctors so we use Visuals Studios to program updates and fix bugs that are found by our offices. The whole company does not use this product but all the developers in the company do. This includes about 50 programmers/engineers located in New York and Pennsylvania. Whenever a bug is found we are alerted and we go in Visual Studios where our product is kept, fix and test the problem and then send it off to QA who further tests it.
  • I really like team explorer option. This makes finding the pending changes super easy and uploading my changes to the software very simple and not a hassle at all.
  • The debugger is awesome, I have used other software that is somewhat difficult to add breakpoints and clear them once they are put in place, but Visual Studios has all those bases covered.
  • Along with the ease of the break points other debug options like the error list and the detailed very accessible call stack is very helpful.
  • One thing that I don't love is the pinning options. If you unpin something I find it fairly hard to find how to get it back and that frustrates me sometimes.
  • The icons, other than the save and folder icons, aren't as clear as to what they are as I would like. I find myself spending a lot of time hovering over each icon to see what it actually is.
  • We use Crystal Reports when we are setting up our reports for the doctors' offices. I wish there Crystal Reports was integrated into Visual Studios. It would be much nicer than have to switch to the Crystal editor to get the report changed.
I would definitely recommend this product to a colleague or even another programmer who doesn't work for my company. Our software is pretty complex and large but this is not a problem for Visual Studios, it helps us keep everything in order and runs are testing exactly how we want it to. One of the great things that VS does is the search box, without this tool I would probably spend hours looking for certain things.

Visual Studio Test Professional, rounding off your development system nicely

We use visual studio test professional in conjunction with Team Foundation Server to complete our development process. It helps us keep an efficient workflow and links to and from work items in Team Foundation Server. Without it, testing developments in our products would be difficult.
  • Friendly web interface - we find the web interface to be a good focal point for our testing.
  • Links to work items - Test professional links nicely to Team Foundation Server meaning we can generate a test from a work item, and a work item (bug/feature request) from a test.
  • Flexible - the option to use the desktop application over the web interface is useful for some management operations.
  • The web interface, while very comprehensive, just can't get close to the desktop test manager when it comes to managing the tests. It would be nice for the desktop client and web interface to match up functionality wise.
  • A direct link to Team Foundation Server work items would be useful, currently you can't have a dashboard showing test work item summarys and development work item summarys. For us, this means that we can't compare active development items with active tests on the same screen
Test Professional is great for our development process where a developer closes a work item out, and creates a test from their work item. This test is then easy to reference for both test execution and test result review. It also helps build an audit trail for development items.
