Project Description

This is a tool built to export Test Plans, suits and test cases from one Project to another. These project can reside in one project collection or in two servers. This tool will copy all test plans, suits and test cases from the source project and create Test plans, suits and  cases similar to source project. Not only test cases it will copy all test steps into test cases and duplicate shared steps that's linked to test cases. You can choose whether or not to duplicate shared steps. but if you choose not to include  shared test steps, software will not add any shared steps. 

Also It has the option of operating it in restore mode. This can be used if you have all the test case work items but lost all your test plans and wants to on of restore those plans from an older test plan version. This can be happen as Deleting test plans only delete test plans and test suits and test cases will remain as they are work item type. Therefore in this mode you wan't need restoring test cases, shared steps, attachments.


Limitations

One problem I was unable to solve is including links of Test cases to other work items when copying test cases when operating in Migration mode.
Including attachments part is still in progress. Also I hope to include copying iterations and areas in future. For now all the newly created test cases will be in 'New' status, not in their last recorded states.
