Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on May 21, 2021

This topic explains how to configure vNext build definitions to run AQTime projects as part of the Build & Release pipeline in Team Foundation Server 2015.

Requirements

The computer, where you create a team build, must have access to your team project on your Team Foundation Server:

  • You can access the project from Visual Studio Team Explorer.

– or –

  • On the computer, where Visual Studio is not installed, you can access the project directly from your web browser by using Team Web Access.

    You can find information on Web Access in the Work in the TFS Web Portal article of the MSDN Library.

Configuring Build Definition

  1. Open your team project’s web portal. You can navigate to it directly in your web browser or you can open it from Visual Studio Team Explorer.

  2. Navigate to the Build hub:

    Click the image to enlarge it.

  4. On the Repository page of the definition, configure your build definition to get the needed files from your source control:

    If You Use Team Foundation Version Control

    Map the source control directories that store your Visual Studio test project and AQTime projects to the appropriate local directories on the build computer:

  5. On the Build page of the definition, specify the details of the build process (what functions the team build will perform):

    • Add a step that will build your Visual Studio test project:

      Click the image to enlarge it.

    • Add a test build step to your definition:

      AQTime integration with Visual Studio: Adding a test step that will run AQTime Test items
