Capturing Functional coverage of the automated tests

Hi All,

I have a question relating to being able to demonstrate what scenarios etc are covered by automated testing. Currently our tests are disconnected from the main test case repository (so an an automated test will not directly link to, and update, a test case in the repository). My question is what methods do people use to demonstrate to people (e.g. project team, test manager etc) what scenarios are actually being covered by automated tests if they were asked - thinking methods which don’t actually involve going into the source code itself.

I am presently using TFS folders and ensuring there is a record of each automated test in a test suite. We have a standard set of regression tests (both “manual” and “automated”) together and then tag automated tests. Wondering if there are better ways of doing this?

Thanks for any thoughts/comments

…following as this is currently a question within my enterprise
