Builds resetting Test suites RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have shifted from XAML builds to TFS builds and are using on-premises TFS 2017.  We are finding that our test suites are having the state of test cases in a test suite set from pass or fail back to active.  We'd prefer this to not occur.  None of the builds are connected to automated tests and the retention option to delete automated test results is not set.  We assume this behavior is caused by the build identifying code changes that are associated with a requirement and resetting the test cases associated with that requirement.

  • Hi James,

    Thanks for posting here. This forum is about the MSBuild(Discuss the Microsoft build engine aka MSBuild. Topics including: usage of MSBuild, build customization, and MSBuild extensibility via tasks, loggers and hosting.). 

    As your issue is more related to the TFS, I suggest that you could open an new thread on the stackoverflow or DeveloperCommunity with TFS tag. More community members on that forum may further look at your issue and provide more suggestions.

    If you have some MSBuild questions, please feel free to contact us. We will try our best to give you a solution. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. 

    Best Regards

  • Thanks, I thought to try here since MS Build seemed to be triggering the updates back into TFS and that with the proper values in the build the updates would not occur in TFS.
