CAN WE INTEGRATE JIRA WITH Microsoft TFS ????

Hello All,

I got a requirement to integrate TFS with JIRA..

Can we do that?

If yes what is the process?

what are the PROS and CONS?

What actually the use if we integrate both?

What are all the details i would be needing to integrate both and what details i have to know and ask the people who require this integration.

Thank you and please reply

Although the question isn't very articulated, you should definitely check out this add-on: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.spartez.jira.plugins.bork.tfs4jira/server/overview

Also checkout ConnectAll. You might want to request for a demo to see it in action.

Thank you!

First, define "integrate" - you need to have a clear set of functions you'd like to see from the integration.

We can't really tell you a lot more than "yes, you can", without knowing what you want from "integration"

My question is can we connect both JIRA and TFS?

If yes

what is the process?

PROS?,CONS?

 

Again, you need to explain what you want.

Let me go back to the original questions:

-----

>Can we do that?

Yes

>If yes what is the process?

You "integrate" them.  The details of "integration" depend on what you want from it.

>what are the PROS and CONS?

Depends on what you want from it, and how you do it.

>What actually the use if we integrate both?

Depends on what you want from it.

>What are all the details i would be needing to integrate both and what details i have to know and ask the people who require this integration.

Depends on what you want from it.

I'm afraid it's no good repeating a question when you are being asked for more information.  There is a good reason we ask for more information: we cannot give you an answer without that information.

Thank you Nic.First of all i dont have clear understanding on the requirement.when i got to know clearly ,I will ask again !!!

Nic, Is there documentation on connecting Jira and TFS?

Not really.  There's documentation on specific ways to do it, but when you have not defined what you want, there is nothing beyond "use REST to talk to Jira"

Hey Nic, What if I wanted to see my TFS changeset numbers in the related Jira ticket?

Hi Kevin,

 

I am Kit, Support Engineer from Spartez. In fact, you may use our product, TFS4JIRA to achieve this. You will be able to see your changeset ID, comments and detail in the associated Jira issue.

 

If you have any questions regarding TFS4JIRA, feel free to contact us at our Support Portal or email us at support@spartez.com.

 

Cheers,

Kit

[Spartez Support Team]

Thanks for your reply Kit, I would prefer to just write something myself.

If it's just the TFS changeset numbers, you've got a couple of options.

  1. Code TFS to update a field in Jira whenever a related changeset is updated.
  2. Write code in J?ira to scrape TFS for changed information regularly and pull it into the issues.

Personally, I'd skip it and use a supported add-on.  I'm fond of the Spartez ones (and I work for a different partner)
