Visual Studio Team Services

Start TestRun directly with Microsoft Test Manager Shortcut

I wrote about MTM.exe’s (Microsoft Test Manager of Visual Studio Test Professional) more or less secret shortcuts a and URI handlers a while ago but as of 2013 (at least I noticed it with 2013.1 and up) there are now also URI protocols that allow one to directly start mtm.exe in its test run mode via mtrs:// ..uris, e.g.:

mtrs://someserver.local:8090/tfs/DefaultCollection/p:project_name/testing/testpoint/run?planid=23&testpointids=9960

.. which will start mtm.exe and connect to the ‘someserver.local’ server at por 8090, using its ‘DefaultCollection’ TeamProjectCollection, the ‘project_name’ project inside of that one and then chooses the test point with id ‘9960’ in the test plan with id ’23’.
