In Test Manager 2010 It seems that I can't order test cases in a Requirement based Test Suite (ordering a test cases in normal test suite works fine) Please anyone explain me why they forbid me to do that, or suggest a way to work around Thanks a lot

How to order / reorganize order of testcases?
Ordnen von Testcases / Testfällen
Ändern der Reihenfolge von Testcases / Testfällen
- create 2 suites, one of them query based
- customize the query of the query based suite and run it
- select all needed testcases and copy them to the clipboard
- insert them in the manual suite order them by
- use "order" from the menue-bar by changing the values in criteria order
- delete the query based suite
- que te diviertas
Just ran into this myself. It turns out that requirement-based test suites are a special case of a query-based suite, which also cannot be ordered. All test cases linked to a requirement / user story will show in the corresponding test suite.
As for work-arounds to the default sort order (apparently, the test case's work item ID), I couldn't find any. However, you could approximate the requirement-based query with a regular query, and then use the query-based suite's sort order capability. There are two problems with this: (1) the requirements that a test case is associated with are not available in the query editor, so you'd have to use some other criteria; and (2) you still don't have ad-hoc test case ordering control like you would with a non-query test suite.
I didn't find anything about adding any ordering capability to requirement-based test suites in an upcoming version, or in any third-party tool. Might be something to look into creating.
