Build and Test Integration Field Reference

You use build and test data fields to 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 and validation steps and the data that are used to perform tests.

The following table indicates those fields used to track test case and shared steps. These work item types are provided within each of the default process templates for Team Foundation Server. See Creating and Managing Tests.
