Test Case Migration Tool for TFS 2010 and Excel

Looks like there is a new migration tool being made available that helps you with importing test cases into TFS 2010 which now has Test Case Management as one of it’s new features.  It’s now available on CodePlex and works with the Beta 2 release.  Here’s some of the features available:

  • Imports Test case information (along with Test Steps) present in Excel into TCM/TFS server – Note: This is ONE way migration only
  • Provides a wizard based UI to run the tool one file at a time
  • Provides a command line support to run the tool in a batch mode
  • Allows you to save your selections/configurations into a mappings file to be reused later
  • Default mapping file that works across both Agile based and CMMI based projects are shipped along with the tool


I believe some systems allow you to export your test cases into Excel (HP Quality Center?) so this might be a good migration option.  You can also use the TFS 2010 SDK to build a custom migration utility that will import from another system without having to go through Excel at first.  Take a look at it and see if it might be helpful for you!
