Good Afternoon,

I've been tinkering with this over the past couple of days, and I am just stuck.  I'm trying to accomplish the following: I want to have a shared test project that both non-dev QA testers AND developers can add tests to.  I had thought that the best way to accomplish this is within Git, but I am just stumped.

Using VS 2022, when I  setup a new Telerik Test Project and try to push it to Git, I can not open the project from within the Test Studio Standalone IDE. Conversely, if I start a Test Studio IDE project and push it to source control, I am unable to open the tests (.tstest files) in order to edit them. 

I think mostly it comes down to me not knowing enough to set this up correctly, and I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction so that both the developers AND QA folks on my team can easily work on the same test projects.

Turns out I kept on creating a new solution versus just adding a Test Project to the existing solution.  Once I actually just added a new VS Telerik Test Project and pushed it to Git I was able to access it as expected.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the detailed explanation. 

Although it seems you have sorted out the issue, I wanted to add some details. The context of the Visual Studio solution and projects differs from the Test Studio standalone project. So, to be able to integrate these between each other and you have started with the Test Studio project, you will need to export it to Visual Studio. This will insert the project into a solution so that Visual Studio can start it correctly. 

The other way round is to create the Test Studio test project into the Visual Studio solution - what you have found yourself already. 

Anyways, I am glad to know that you do not have further issues with sharing the project across the team. Let us know if you need assistance for any other difficulties.

Regards,
Elena
