TFS sync errors for releases/iterations

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

I am trying to setup synchronization between Spirateam and MS TFS, and it seems to be working for incidents and tasks.
For releases/iterations however, it is not working properly.

If there have been releases/iterations defined in TFS in hierarchy, for instance Release 1.0, Sprint 1, only the Sprint 1 is imported into Spirateam.

I tried the other way around also, created the releases and iterations in Spirateam, and not in TFS. This resulted in an error in the windows event log:
Error Synchronizing Incidents between TFS and SpiraTeam: TF26065: The project hierarchy node is not recognized.

The releases and iterations are not created in TFS. The user which is used for synchronization has admin rights in TFS.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Best regards,

Hi Yvette

The TFS plugin will only add releases / iterations to the other system if that item is in 'use', i.e. has a work item or incident/task/requirement using it.

If that doesn't explain what you're seeing, please log a help desk ticket with us.

Best Regards
