How to: Open Test Results from Work Items

When a test result is linked to a work item, you can open the test result directly from the work item.


This topic is based on the work item fields and tabs available in the bug work item for MSF for Agile Software Development. If your project is using a different methodology, your work item fields and tabs may be different. MSF for Agile Software Development is one of the process guidance templates that are included with Team Foundation. For more information, see Finding and Using Process Guidance.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Readers group or have the View work items in this node permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
