News TFS is just too much fun not to share. So, along with some of my TFS colleagues, we have organized a local TFS community.
Check us out.

TFS Austin Agile SCM Talk Visual Studio ALM Team Foundation Server Practice
TFS uses a version of NTLM over unsecure HTTP and Firefox doesn't want to allow this by default. Of course, Firefox doesn't tell you it's forbidding something; instead it just acts like you got a 403. Here's how to fix it so you can use FF on TFS: In your address bar, go to "about:config" You should get a little search bar and a giant list of properties. ......

I ported my TFS API code to use the V12 (2013) assemblies. I then built and created a NuGet package of the TFS API Lib and installed it in an application. Immediately that application build failed because the Microsoft.WITDataStore.dll assmebly was missing from my TFS API NuGet package. I found that by default, when the reference tag is not used at ......

You can delete a published branch from Visual Studio, but to remove it from the server use the this git statement from the command prompt of the local repo:

C:\_s\Git\myRepo>git push origin --delete myBranch



I was surprised at the dearth of information on this. Here’s the whole enchilada. I did not have to enter user or password information for the TF commands. This could be because my Mac account and password is identical to the Windows AD account and password. Use TF help to get a full listing of commands and TF Help [command] for details on each command. ......

1. Go to the target team project admin site 2. Create the new repo on the TFS server (with the same name as the source repo except under the target team project) 3. Go to the target team project site and display the empty repo. Note the new repo remote url 4. Open Visual Studio 2013 team explorer connect tab (Update 2 or >) and connect to the remote ......

It should be simple, but due to the length of the string, the syntax was not obvious. The out-of-the-box default is as follows. Note the backslash escape character and stick to the syntax: {New Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Bu... { ""AssemblyFileSpec"": ""**\\*test*.dll;**\\*test*... ""RunSettingsFileName"": null, ""TestCaseFilter"": ......

When we upgraded to NuGet 2.8 our PUSH command starting failing. The first fix was to appended “packages” to the source URL string like this: myFeed.com:8080/api/packages We use the SetApiKey command on our server so we don’t have to explicitly include the API key itself in the push command. After making the change above we had issues with the PUSH ......

Here is a handy TFS 2013 build activity for getting the last build by build number filter. In this case: We get the 4th version node number: we call it the revision number We use semantic versioning and some of our branches are “version named” i.e. 1.4.10 using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Activities; ......

We don’t need to keep our drop folders after a week. Here some code to accomplish that. [TestMethod] public void SetDeleteBuildDropFolder() { //method parms string collectionUrl = "http://myCollectionUrl"; string projectName = "myTeamProjectName"; var buildDefinitionNames = new List<string>(); buildDefinitionNames.Add("m... ......

The Team Foundation Server build can include command output in the report log or summary by using the stdOutput and errOutput variables in the WriteBuildMessage or WriteCustomSummaryInformation activities. I’ve often been frustrated with bad formatting that you get. However, I found that if you simply use String.Format with stdOutput or errOuput, you ......
