How to Tie test case in VSTS to SOAP UI Pro

I have test case# in VSTS.

Once I automate test case scenario in SOAP UI Pro , how to do we mark it as Automated in VSTS.

I could not find much documentation around it. Please suggest

Re: How to Tie test case in VSTS to SOAP UI Pro

Hi @Hellotest,

Im responding cos no one else has yet, but im unsure if i can help too much although this might help steer you in the right direction. Have you has a good look through the documentation? The reason i ask is that typically a lot of tools that support automatic update of tests to reflect your test results in ReadyAPI!/SoapUI are done by exposing an API (within the testmanagement tool) that you post to as the last step in each test case in ReadyAPI! This is the mechanism to ensure the results are updated in your test management tool via ReadyAPI!/SoapUI etc.
Ive had a look at this sort of thing in other test management tools and tools that support testmanagement; id suggest if noone else has any good ideas that you search the VSTS support documentation to see if anything like an API for test update is mentioned.

Hope this helps a little,

Rich

Re: How to Tie test case in VSTS to SOAP UI Pro

I have been using visual studio to build my automated tests .

In Visual studio there is Test Explorer where we can search for automated test and provide test case number of VSTS. Upon save , the automated status in VSTS is turned to Yes.

So as we are moving to SOAP UI Pro I was looking if we have any similar functionalty here that would be very helpfull.

Hi @Hellotest,

But in the example you state, VSTS's test explorer lists the test case files that youve created previously in VSTS (probably front end auto tests, right?). These arent placeholders these are test case files themselves meaning you dont require interaction with anything else except VSTS to run them. Whereas ReadyAPI! does its own test management....the test cases are created within objects, in files (either flat or composite) that are accessible via ReadyAPI!.

The ReadyAPI! project is saved in .xml so perhaps its possible to actually save and create test cases to the ReadyAPI! project file within another tool, but this raises the questions why bother? By using the ReadyAPI! functionality you are creating/updating the underlying .xml project file. You could do this in some other tool, but repeated updates of the .xml file without the restrictions/controls ReadyAPI! uses to edit its own project file would i suspect generate malformed .xml quite easily.

Ive never known anyone update a soapui project file in a headless environment...doesnt this equate to your idea? Or am i misunderstanding?

Cheers

@Hellotest,

I just realised....from the title of your post...youre talking about linking tests already created in VSTS to ReadyAPI!/SoapUI arent you? Do you actually have API tests created in VSTS already?

VSTS is MS right so youd need to write your tests using something like C# (.net runtime), not Java and ReadyAPI! uses Java runtime.

I didnt think VSTS supports Java but i just did a bit of reading an apparently it does, although no doubt your have to jump through some hoops to get it to work.

Re: How to Tie test case in VSTS to SOAP UI Pro

I would like to explain the scenario clearly . In VSTS , we can create manual test cases.

Once the same test case scenario is automated in SOAP UI Pro I would like to make or update  manual test case in VSTS as automated. 

Today we can do that in Visual Studio with webtest. In VSTS there is field Automated Status .

From VS studio under Test explorer we can map both webtest and test case# , which turns that field value as Automated in VSTS.

I had checked under Requirement under SOAP UI, looks like only using Excel sheet but just wondering we can 

map directly in VSTS.

This is needed as we have some metrics down the line .

Absolutely no ideas about vsts.
