useTFS is crashing when loading Jira workitem schema file

When i load the jira xml file into the useTFS client i have an error message:

System.InvalidOperationException: There is an error in XML document (1, 2). ---> System.InvalidOperationException: <WITD xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/2008/workitemtracking/typedef'> was not expected.

at Microsoft.Xml.Serialization.GeneratedAssembly.XmlSerializationReaderUseTfsWorkSynchronizer.Read7_UseTfsWorkSynchronizer()

I have VS2012 and TFS2012.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Based on the exception message I believe you're trying to load JiraIssueTfsSchema.xml into UseTFS client which is not correct.

The sample file you should load there is called BugWorkSynchronizer.xml and resides under [USETFS_INSTALL_PATH]\WorkSynchronizerSamples (by default: c:\Program Files (x86)\UseTFS\WorkSynchronizerSamples\BugWorkSynchronizer.xml )

In case you have any other questions or issues please contact directly with me at andrzej.pasterczyk@pigsty.com.pl
