This section suggests tests you can do before you release your Microsoft Outlook Social Connector (OSC) provider. You can start referring to the topics in this section and carry out some of these tests during your development and testing phases, but you should have completed these tests by the time you release. These tests verify the basic functionality of your implementation of the OSC provider interfaces with respect to the capabilities you specify for the OSC provider. You should determine whether other tests are necessary for features specific to your provider.

Testing Deployment

Describes scenarios you should test for around installing and uninstalling an OSC provider.

Testing Capabilities, Authentication, and Configuration

Describes tests for getting capabilities, and scenarios around configuring an account and authenticating a user for a social network.

Testing Following and Stop-Following Persons

Testing Friends

Describes tests and scenarios to verify that the OSC provider appropriately returns data of friends and non-friends, where applicable, depending on the synchronization mode that the provider supports.

Testing Activities

Describes tests and scenarios to verify that the OSC provider appropriately returns activities of friends and non-friends, where applicable, depending on the synchronization mode that the provider supports.
