    Hi all,

    Is it possible to schedule a WebUI test directly from Telerik Test Studio Express (the plug-in in Visual Studio 2010)? The flow that I am thinking about is:
    1. Create test in Visual Studio with Test Studio Express
    2. Save the test and schedule it to run on a separate execution server through separate scheduling server
    The same flow is possible through stand-alone Telerik Test Studio.

    Thanks in advance,
    Igor

    Hi Igor,

    The Developer Edition doesn't have UI for scheduling test lists. You can only schedule test lists with the QA Edition, but the Dev Edition can be used as Execution Server and/or Scheduling Server.

    Kind regards,

    Plamen,

    Thank you for your reply. So, what you are saying is the that the plug-in for Visual Studio 2010 (Test Studio Express) is really a Developer Edition, and you cannot schedule tests from it, and it is only to develop tests and run them locally. Could you please clarify?

    Thanks in advance,
    Igor

    Igor,

    Have you tried opening the solution (or project) of test cases using the QA version?  If you can do that, then presumably you can accomplish what you want.

    If you have a test environment setup based on TFS/Microsoft Test Manager (MTM), you also have the option to use MTM's command line version (tcm.exe) run your tests.  You can export your tests to test cases (btw, you can only do this from Visual Studio and not from WebUI QA), create a suite of these test cases in MTM and write a batch script to invoke tcm.exe on this suite.  You can, of course, run these suites manually from MTM as well.  The batch script can then be scheduled using Windows Scheduler or hooked up to your CI environment (if you have one) to run your tests as part of the build/deployment. 

    Information on setting up WebUI with TFS (and other tools such as Nunit) can be found in the Help documentation of WebUI.

    Hope that helps,
    Shashi

    Hi
    Igor and Shashi

    Thank you for the detailed explanation Shashi. Igor, if you want to use TFS to build and run your tests instead of our own Scheduling Server, you can take a look at this KB article here and some documentation here
