Updated Plugin For TFS 2012 Released

21-Aug-2013 by Inflectra Product News

We are pleased to announce the release of an updated plugin for customers using SpiraTest, SpiraPlan or SpiraTeam with Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2012 and later. It makes using both tools together even more seamless and powerful. As always this plugin is freely downloadable from our website.

Since SpiraTest is one of the most popular test management system in use with TFS, we have upgraded the functionality to provide the following new features:

  • The plugin uses the new TFS 2012 API that offers enhanced access to TFS data and also allows use of Windows Live IDs as well as ActiveDirectory credentials.
  • Work items such as user stories can now be imported directly into SpiraTest as requirements.
  • Support for additional custom property / field types including user, multiselect lists, dates and boolean flags.
  • The hyperlinks and related work item links added to the TFS work item are now imported into SpiraTest as associations. Similarly, associations in SpiraTest are now imported into TFS work items.
  • Attachments (screen shots, error files, etc.) added to SpiraTest incidents are now imported into TFS and attached to the appropriate work item.
  • Attachments (screen shots, error files, etc.) added to TFS work items are now imported into SpiraTest and attached to the appropriate incident, requirement or task.
