Find PBIs Without Test Cases

I’m feeling encouraged. It seems that more and more teams, whether they are using automated or manual tests, are using Azure Test Plans to create and track their acceptance testing efforts. I was teaching a pre-conference workshop at STARWEST last week, and a student asked how to find all the Product Backlog Items (PBIs) in the current Sprint that *didn’t* have any associated Test Cases. If a team is using Bug work items, they could be included as well.

I decided to go old school with a solution. I created a work items and direct links query, returning all RequirementCategory (PBI) work items found in the current Sprint, that do not have a matching Tested By link.
