Hello,

I'm looking for solutions or ideas about scheduling and executing older versions of tests.
We keep our tests in TFS so when we start a new sprint we could also make a branch of our tests.
For example we have application X version 1 in production. Last sprint we worked on version 1.1 but it still needs acceptance by the business and maybe minor fixes. This sprint we work on version 1.2 we have some changes on the application and we want to modify our tests for those changes. However I still want to execute the older tests on application version 1.1.

How can i schedule and execute this?
Is the only solution to create a branch of our tests and then schedule these?
I think this would be big manual operation and I would need dedicated execution servers for a version (?)

Kind regards,
Norbert

Hi Norbert,

We follow the same configuration as you and yes we keep a branch of the Telerik Test Studio project in the same branch as our software version.  I am not aware of any other way you can manage this, but it seems to work quite seamlessly for us without much, if any, overhead.

We use the TFS merge feature when we need to fix up tests in version 1.1 as well as version 1.2.

Thanks
Shane
