How to Run Automated Tests as Part of the Build

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

You can run automated tests to automatically gain feedback on build quality after every build. In order to run automated tests, you must have Visual Studio Developer Edition as well as Visual Studio Test Edition on the build server, or you can install the entire Team Suite. Developer Edition is necessary in order to run the build, while Test Edition is necessary in order to set up tests and test lists that can be run.

To run automated tests as part of the Team Build process
  1. Create one or more automated tests that you want to run with the build.
  2. On the Test menu, click Create New Test List...
  3. Use the Test Manager to group tests into the new Test List by dragging and dropping the tests from the Test View to the Test List in the Test Manager.
  4. Create a new Team Build type.
  5. Select the check box to run automated tests.
  6. Select the test project within which your tests and test list were created
  7. Select the test list you want to run.
