Visual Studio Test Professional Room for Improvement

Lead DevOps and Release Engineer-L2 at ITWORX

The service right now is far too expensive. You need to pay per user.

The solution needs more reports and more dashboards as well as more details for each originated spare test case or best guess in test cases.

There are still some issues in the results. There is an extension integrated with the test manager that enables you to run manual testing and to track the progress of any scenarios you've written in the Test Professional. We have noticed some bugs in this extension and this is the core of running the manual test cases. These bugs need to be resolved. They have to enhance or to add more stability to this extension specifically.

In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line. It gives me memory analysis, however, it's not taking me to the code lines. That's what I was searching for in Micro Focus. If I could find a product that works exactly like BoundsChecker or better, then I would switch to that.

I would like to see better integration with the main product, Visual Studio.

The tools for unit testing can be improved, giving a better ability to manage tests.

I would like to see more plugins.

Enhancing the support for web application testing and load performance would be an improvement.

It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently.

It is not good in terms of performance. When you open Visual Studio, you have to wait for a while to process your code. It uses a lot of resources and has a lot of features. If we could disable some of the features, it would be lighter and faster to use. Nowadays, for some of the projects, we use VS Code for JavaScript or Python. VS Code is very light and easy to use, whereas, in Visual Studio, we have to wait because it takes time to compile or run a project. It has a lot of competitors in terms of performance, such as Intelligent ID. Intelligent ID is very easy to use. It has many features, and it is lighter to use than Visual Studio.

In terms of error handling, sometimes, it shows an error before you finish your code, which can be improved. It would be good if it has a version for Linux. I use VS Code on Linux, but I am not sure if Visual Studio has a version for Linux.

The stability of this solution needs to be improved because sometimes it hangs and crashes.

The speed at which deployment can be done has room for improvement.

The support documentation that is available on the Microsoft website should be improved.

I would like to see more visuals, such as graphs and diagrams, added.

The database administration could be better; it would be nice if we could do every design related task also in Visual Studio what is possible in SQL Server Management Studio.

We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins.

We are having trouble that necessitates entering the identification properties of objects manually.

I particularly use some templates around BI that are called SQL servers, data, and tools, and they are an extension to Visual Studio. Some of them are like integration services that would benefit from some improvements, but I think Microsoft has other things that they might want to improve first. I would, however, like to see an improvement in the data flow.

The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.

The diagrammatic representation of the database in the entity framework is helpful but it seems to have been removed.

One of the problems with this solution is you need to be highly technically skilled to operate it, it is not for everyone. Additionally, I would like to see an orchestrator added to the solution.

There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less.
