After your build finishes running continuous tests using Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation Server, review your test results to start analyzing any problems that you found.

  1. In Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation Server, go to your team project.

  2. Find your build to open the build summary:

    Go to Build hub, build definition, build summary

  3. Review the summary for your test run results. Here you'll find changes in new, failed, and passed tests, how long these tests took to run, how long these tests have been failing, and more.

  4. Organize your test results using the group and outcome lists.

  5. To start debugging a failed test, review the resulting error and stack trace.

  6. To trace the results of a test across builds, view the test history.

    Open the test history page

  7. In the history page, review when a test started to pass or fail.
