  1. Support Install Directory Outside of AppData

    Due to security restrictions on programs executing out of AppData at my company, they whitelist another directory where we can install development software. Because NCrunch does not allow an install directory outside of AppData, I am unable to get it to work under this security policy.

    It is pretty common to allow custom install paths, so I am requesting that you support this feature for NCrunch as well.

  2. Add "Configure selected component" RMB menu on NCrunch project warnings

    [v3.22]
    Today I can select a project in NCrunch Tests window and RMB and choose "Configure selected component" to easily find it in the NCrunch Configuration pane.
    However for project warnings I cannot do this (e.g. for warning "NCrunch detected unusual behaviour around the resolution of referenced assemblies required by this project in its test environment"). and must manually navigate to the project in the configuration pane, which is tedious for large solutions.

  3. Add "/VS" switch (vstudio version) to grid node server configuration

    I have some tests requiring vs2013, these work fine with ncrunch.exe since I can use the /VS version.
    However when I use vs2017 for local development the tests are failing (since the grid node uses vs2017 if that is available).
    I would like the grid node configuration to be able to specifiy a vs version to use, so I can dedicate 1 grid node to run in vs2013 environment (in combination with capabilities to ensure such tests are run on that)

  4. Option to suppress TC service msg "NCrunch result: TestFailure" in console tool

    From https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2618_NCrunch-Console-and-TeamCity-muted-tests.aspx

    I want to be able to utilize TeamCity Test Muting (see https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/TCD18/Muting+Test+Failures ) and therefore I need NCrunch to not report build failure via TC service message if a test fails.

  5. Detect Microsoft.Net.Compilers references and automatically copy it to the workspace

    The Microsoft.Net.Compilers package allows projects to use a specific version of the compiler. When NCrunch attempts to build a project referencing that package it will fail by default with the error: "packages\Microsoft.Net.Compilers.2.4.0\build..\tools\csc.exe" is invalid." The current workaround is to add the tools directory for that package in the "Additional Files to Include" dialog.

    NCrunch should recognize that this package is unique and handle it automatically.

  6. Allow to rerun all tests matching current engine mode

    If I have 2 engine modes "Manual" and "All Automatically except HttpTest", I must toggle between the 2 in order to re-execute all tests.

    I would want a way to execute all tests matching the active engine mode, without having to toggle between "Manual" and the one I would want to be re-executed.

  7. Engine mode condition to allow distribute processing only of some tests

    Summary: I would like to specify an engine mode e.g. "Run db tests locally, all other distributed".
    Details: I would like to define grid nodes condition in the NCrunch engine mode settings. A first simple step would be to add setting similar to "Tests to execute on this machine", but under the Distributed Processing node. This way I can ensure no test with category [DbTest] is executed on grid nodes, but only on local (where I have the test db set up).

  8. Attribute to exclude specific tests from automatically running

    I have several unit tests and integration tests within the same project. It would be great to have an attribute to exclude the integration tests from automatic runs. These tests would only be trigger-able manually

  9. Include Process Id in NCrunch Console Timeline report

    I would like to see when NCrunch starts up a new, or reuses existing, process in the NCrunch Console Timeline report, so I can find if long test run duration is due to process startup time or due to slow test run.

  10. Allow negative wildcard inclusions

    NCrunch allows you to add files and directory to include in the workspace using file globbing patterns. This is a great feature. However, this feature could be improved to also allow you to specify "negative inclusions", which would greatly benefit large solutions.

    My solution has 107 projects in it and one of the projects is a test project that runs some "solution-wide" tests using Roslyn Compiler Services. So this test project requires that the entire solution be in the workspace. However, what I don't need are all the {bin,obj}*. files, just the *.cs and *.csproj files.

    Currently, it's really difficult…

  11. Run same test with different configuration options (similar to NUnit's TestCase)

    Let's say I need to support 2 db providers (e.g. SqlServer and Sqlite) and I write the same (1) test for both but in the configuration file for the test project I define which db provider it should connect to.

    Currently the work process is something like:
    1) Run all tests with SqlServer provider setting set
    2) Change configuration file to use Sqlite provider.
    3) Re-run all tests to tests towards Sqlite provider.

    What I would like to have is something like:
    1) In a setting for a test project, define x number of "environment configurations" where I guess the…

  12. improve indicators for explicit and ignored tests

    I use Nunit but I guess there are similar concepts for other test frameworks. Currently any explicit or ignored tests have white icons in the editor and show as unexecuted in the tests window.

    I would like the option to change these indicators. In particular to change the colour/shape for the ignored/explicit tests icon in the editor.

    I would also like a filter for both explicit and ignored tests in the tests window. This would help me to track these tests down quickly

  13. Allow AssemblyVersion to be ignored in order to prevent errors in NCrunch

    If the AssemblyVersion attribute contains an asterisk (eg "1.0.0.*") then NCrunch cannot reliably build the solution.

    Currently, there is no way to prevent NCrunch from resolving the AssemblyVersion of each project and this causes problems with inconsistencies and NCrunch reporting build errors because MSBuild is expecting a different version of the assembly to the one provided.

    The current alternative to this involves polluting non-test project files with NCrunch-related hacks, which is not very clean.

    In order to resolve this issue, I suggest that a setting feature be added to NCrunch which allows AssemblyVersion resolution to be disabled.

  14. Option to hide NCrunch warnings per user

    I would like a solution setting so clicking "Click here to hide this warning" ends up in my .ncrunchproject.user instead of team shared .ncrunchproject file.

    Background:
    I have a lot of warnings in projects I am hiding, after validating they are valid to ignore. If I am not experienced with NCrunch I probably do not know what they mean, hide it and commit changes to .ncrunchproject files.
    The warnings also include grid nodes warnings, which might only be specific for my machine (if we e.g. do not share grid nodes for the team settings) and really makes no sense to…

  17. White color for "lines covered by passing tests"

    I have tried using the color white for marking lines covered by passing tests, so that I only get highlights on lines of code needing my attention.

    However, when setting anything above 224 it switches back to black, probably some kind of contrast code that kicks in. Could I ask for an option to turn this behavior off, so that if I want white color, I can get white color?

  18. In Tests window, include analyze time in "Last execution time" for test projects

    For test projects, the "Last execution time" seems to contain the build time, where "Cumulative Build time" (I assume) aggregates these figures.
    Say I have some projects with a build time of 20s, and analyze time of 30s before any test is run, I would like build+analyze time as a column, so I can spot test projects being overall bottlenecks.
    Since analyze time is part of my "sit and wait" period, I get a better overview of which projects are bottle necks if these durations are inccluded in metrics, and can tell which projects I need to split into smaller…

  19. Time limit option for Churn mode

    I would like to be able to Churn tests for x seconds/minutes and if it hasn't failed within that time stop churning.

    This so after I have fixed a failing test, which I know fails in churn mode within x seconds, I don't want to run "Churn until it fails" but rather set a time period I know should be sufficient to reproduce it.

  20. Don't show "NCrunch Client Disabled" as an error in red

    When I try to connect to an NCrunch grid node and get "NCrunch Client DIsabled" in red text, my first impulse is to troubleshoot. Is it a firewall problem? Bad password? Something else?

    Then it clicks...client. I don't have NCrunch enabled in my current Visual Studio solution (or maybe I don't even have a solution loaded yet).

    Well, obviously NCrunch won't send anything to the node if there's nothing to send. This isn't really an error, per se, so I don't think NCrunch should show the message in red in this case.
