Converting Automated Test Cases to Manual Test Cases

Using SCTM 12.0 is there a way to Convert Automated Test Cases into Manual Test Cases, or export them to Excel?

Hello Trigmj

There is no current functionality that will allow you to convert Automated Tests into Manual Tests (only the reverse is permitted).  If you wish to export your automated tests you can create a custom report for these in SCTM and download to csv.  See below SQL that will return all SilkTest and SilkPerformer tests.  This can be amended to narrow down by project using the 'ProjectID'.

SELECT [TestContainerID]










 FROM RTM_V_TestDefinitions

WHERE TestTypeName IN  ('SilkTest', 'SilkPerformer')




can you please give some more background information on the use case?

What kind of automated test case are you using and how should this be mapped to a manual test consisting of single test steps?

It’s not possible to convert them back to Manual Tests. Ideally it would be good to have that as a feature, but in theory, why would you want to convert them back to manual tests? It is possible to execute those Automated Tests, manually in Execution Planning. You set Run Type as ‘Run automated tests manually’.
