Microsoft TFS for Version Control

The TFS (Microsoft Team Foundation Server) VCS to CA Agile Central connector shows traceability of code changes to artifacts in CA Agile Central.

The connector comprises of code that skims a centralized, master TFS repository for recent commits. It extracts information from the commit messages, and posts changeset and change information to a CA Agile Central SCMRepository, according to specifications in a configuration file. The connector needs to be installed on only one computer for your company.


Developers can add FormattedIDs (such as US42) in their commit messages and the connector will process all commits for configured repositories and push information about those commits into changeset objects and change objects in CA Agile Central. If a valid FormattedID is found in a commit message, the changeset created by the connector will be associated with that defect , story, or task in CA Agile Central.

See the TFS VCS Installation & User Guide for information on installing, configuring, and using the connector. See Understanding Supported Versions for more information on supported versions.
