Integrated Development Environments

SpiraTeam is fully integrated into your developers' IDEs, allowing them to view and manage their assigned requirements, tasks and incidents in the same environment that they write code. SpiraTeam has add-ins currently available for Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse (using the Mylyn task-based interface).


Microsoft Visual Studio 2010+


One of the challenges facing organizations today is the need to reduce the number of disparate systems and interfaces that people have to use to manage their software lifecycles. With SpiraTeam, organizations can migrate away from old fashioned, stove-piped separate requirements, quality assurance, software testing, project management and bug tracking systems into an integrated web-based lifecycle management system.

Such a seamless web-based environment provides a superb interface for business analysts, testers, managers and executives. However, developers responsible for developing the software code typically need to work in powerful IDEs that are appropriate to the type of the software being developed. Therefore to maximize efficiency and improve productivity, developers can now access their SpiraTeam information directly within their existing IDE.

The SpiraTeam Add-In for Visual Studio snaps into the existing Solution Explorer, adding a SpiraTeam project explorer that displays the assigned requirements, tasks and incidents. You can open up any of the artifacts in the main viewing pane and act on them accordingly.


By double-clicking an artifact in the Project Explorer, you can open the details for the item in the main tabbed-document view. All the details screens are very similar:


All of the fields closely match the fields as they appear in SpiraTeam’s interface. The toolbar at top lets you Save the item, Refresh the details, and view the item in the browser if you so wish. Tasks and Incidents also have a Work Timer button on the toolbar, which lets a developer mark an item as being worked on, and when the developer stops working, it will update the fields with any time worked. Incident screens also have the Workflow steps up in the toolbar under the “Change Status” dropdown. Once you make changes to the artifact, changes are saved to the server when the “Save” button is clicked.

Note: This integration requires at least version 4.0 of SpiraTeam and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition or later.

Eclipse / Mylyn


One of the challenges facing organizations today is the need to reduce the number of disparate systems and interfaces that people have to use to manage their software lifecycles. With SpiraTeam, organizations can migrate away from old fashioned, stove-piped separate requirements, quality assurance, software testing, project management and bug tracking systems into an integrated web-based lifecycle management system.

Such a seamless web-based environment provides a superb interface for business analysts, testers, managers and executives. However, developers responsible for developing the software code typically need to work in powerful IDEs that are appropriate to the type of the software being developed. Therefore to maximize efficiency and improve productivity, developers can now access their SpiraTeam information directly within their existing IDE.

For Eclipse users, we have used the Mylyn task-focused interface to deliver SpiraTeam information directly into the Mylyn task repository so that using SpiraTeam is as familiar as any other part of the Eclipse environment.

The SpiraTeam connector for Eclipse Mylyn includes queries that display the assigned requirements, tasks and incidents. You can open up any of the artifacts in the main viewing pane and act on them accordingly.


By double-clicking an artifact in the task list, you can open the details for the item in the main tabbed-document view. All the details screens are very similar and use the native Mylyn fields wherever possible:


All of the fields closely match the fields as they appear in SpiraTeam’s interface. The buttons at the top let you Submit changes the item, Refresh the details, and view the item in the browser if you so wish. Incident screens also have the Workflow steps as a custom Mylyn task section so that you can move incidents through the SpiraTeam workflow. Once you make changes to the artifact, changes are saved to the server when the “Submit” button is clicked.

Note: This integration requires at least version 3.0 of SpiraTeam and Eclipse v3.5 (or later) with the Mylyn plugin installed
