Build and Test Integration (CMMI)

Visual Studio 2010

By using build and test data fields, you can perform the following actions:

  • Associate Bugs with the builds where they were found or fixed.

  • Mark Test Cases as either manual or automated and store information to support automated test cases.

  • For Test Cases and Shared Steps, define the action steps, the validation steps, and the data that are used to perform tests.

This topic describes data fields that are available in only specific types of work items that are provided with the following process templates:

  • MSF for Agile Software Development v5.0

  • MSF for Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Process Improvement v5.0
