    My company is looking at using WebUI Dev Edition for our automated tests, but we also have a large collection of manual tests.  These manual tests are in Word document form and are derived from stories from our own custom ticket system.  My question is if there is a good way to transfer the manual test scripts into a test manager (like MTM??), so that it is easily transferable to WebUI?  Or does WebUI (Dev or QA edition) have manual test capabilities that can be customized to contain story/acceptance information (Foreign unique ID, Pre- & Post- Conditions, etc.)?

    If any clarification is needed, just ask.  Thanks in advance!

    Hello Garrett,

    I don't think we can import your current manual test cases (except for copy & paste), but we do support what we call Manual Test Steps. The attached screenshot "add manual step dev edition" shows what it looks like adding a manual step. The attached screenshot "execute manual step" shows what it looks like when you execute a test containing a Manual Test Step. I hope that helps.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for the quick response Cody.  Yes, that does help.  A followup question would be if there is a recommended way within the WebUI "tool box" to link (or otherwise establish a relationship) between an automated test created with WebUI to a test (of any kind) that's already in Microsoft Test Manager?  Also, is there a way to add simple additional information to an WebUI automated test.  I'm looking for data like general comments, test script history, etc.

    Sorry for the basic, repeat, and/or off-base questions.

    Hi Garrett,

    I am forwarding you an email from a colleague of mine that got our tests working in the new MS Test Manager. This is such a new animal that we're still learning what it can and cannot do and how to integrate WebAii tests into it. 

    All the best,

    Hi --
    I'm also interested in how to run Telerik Test Studio tests (.tstest) from Microsoft Test Manager (MTM).  Can you please send the information to me or the forum? 

    Here is my specific intention:
    1. Use MS Test Manager (aka "Test Center") MTM.exe or Visual Studio 2010 to create a Test Case work item in Team Foundation Server (TFS).  Such as Test Case ID 1234.
    2. Use Visual Studio 2010 to associate a Telerik Test Studio test (.tstest file) with the Test Case ID 1234 (Associated Automation linkage).
    3. Use MS Test Manager (not Visual Studio) to run the automated implementation (tstest) of Test Case ID 1234.

    The benefit for me is that my manual test cases and automated test cases will be executed and reported in one central place.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    Yes I can confirm that you can do all the steps you described in your last post for associating a MS Test work item to Telerik automation file (.aii or .tstest) and then execute this Test Case from MS Test Manager, which will run the automation upon execution.
