A detailed shape analysis of the kinematic distributions of the new boson decay allow to extract the couplings and tensor structure of its production and decay amplitude. Expectations for spin/parity measurement, using this method, will be shown, combining ZZ, WW and gamma-gamma final states, as well as first results of parity analysis from CMS data (12.2 fb-1).
