Manage Team Foundation Server

  • Manage team project collections
    • Move project collections, manage team collections and projects, create and configure team project collections, create a team project using SharePoint and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), split and partition Team Project Collections

Customize Team Foundation Server for team use

  • Configure a team build definition
    • Set up for a symbol server and source server; set up for custom build numbers, configure build log verbosity; set up definition properties (test impact analysis, code analysis, automated unit testing, and architecture validation); set up build triggers (gated check-in, continuous integration, and scheduled build); configure the build drop location to be in source code control or a fileshare

Administer version control

  • Create and manage workspaces
    • Cloak, undo delete, and modify a workspace; delete a workspace; specify workspace visibility; unlock other users’ checkouts, pending changes, and code; choose a default workspace type for a collection; delete a shelveset

Create and configure test plans

  • Create test plan properties
    • Select test settings; select configurations; define name, description, area, path, and iteration; select test environments; assign build to test plan, including when to assign a build to a plan, compare assigned build to another build, clone test plans and test suites
  • Create test suites
    • Create query-based test suites using hierarchical queries, create requirement-based test suites, create static test suites, copy test suites, create a test suite hierarchy, assign test suite states, clone test suites from the command line, manage test suites by using a web browser

Manage test cases

  • Create test cases
    • Design test cases that have clear and measurable steps, assign test case properties (title, areas and iterations, state, priority, assign to, and automation status), add attachments and links, add the test case description and history, add tested requirements, manage test case workflow (state), bulk author test cases by using a grid view

Manage test execution

  • Run tests
    • Run tests with options, create fast forward for manual testing recordings, select fast forward playback options (all steps, multiple steps), set test run states, validate expected results (add comments, snapshots), run tests from a browser, update the status of multiple test cases without opening them in the test runner, customize the test result fields in Microsoft Test Manager (MTM)/web browser, pause and resume tests in MTM/web browser, edit tests inline during test execution, manually test Windows Store apps and review action logs
  • Perform analysis
    • Analyze reports (requirements-user stories), analyze by test suite, analyze by configuration, identify areas where quality is low, identify test plan status, view test plan results in MTM, work with out-of-the-box reports, customize out-of-the-box reports

Define the ALM process

  • Define a scrum/agile process for a team
    • Establish criteria on when to cancel a sprint/iteration, establish tooling and process for scrum/agile artifacts, establish the scrum definition of "done," determine sprint/iteration length, determine how to handle backlog items/user stories not completed in a sprint/iteration, determine how to monitor sprint/iteration progress, use collaborative tools

Define a software iteration

  • Define a project-tracking process
    • Plan and manage a portfolio of multiple projects, identify a project tracking tool and an associated process (triage process, bug management), define how to manage effort, determine team forecast management, define a prioritization scheme, determine how to validate project health

Develop customer value with high quality

  • Develop code
    • Develop maintainable code; define coding standards; define application architecture; define configuration management process and tooling, including source control tree, branching strategy, solution structure, source control/check-in policy; manage multiple repositories using Git; use architecture, model, and design tools; use quality and diagnostic tools
  • Validate quality
    • Organize test artifacts, such as test cases, suites, plans, and requirements; define test strategy; manage test execution; perform cloud-based load testing; identify test types and associated tools; identify and configure environments; analyze test runs

Integrate development and operations

  • Implement an automated deployment process
    • Architect an automated build and deploy workflow, integrate automated tests, automate deployment into both test and production environments, review diagnostic logs for builds, manage releases
