Adding TFS Issue Tracking Profiles

You need to configure a Team Foundation Server Web Service Proxy, which is provided by Micro Focus to enable Silk Central to access TFS issues.
Important: This is not the Team Foundation Server Proxy provided by Microsoft.

To add a TFS issue tracking profile:

  1. In the menu, click Issues > Issue Tracking Integrations. The Issue Tracking page displays, listing all issue tracking profiles that have been created for the system.
  2. Click New Profile to open the New Issue Tracking Profile dialog box.
  3. Type a Name for the new profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where the profiles are available for selection.
  4. Type a Description for the new profile.
  5. Select Team Foundation Server from the Type list box.
  6. Type a valid Username and Password. These credentials will be used to access the issue tracking system.
  7. Type the Domain of the TFS user.
  8. Enter the URL of your TFS installation. For example, http://tfsserver:8080/tfs.
  9. Type the Collection to which your project belongs. For example DefaultCollection. All projects in the collection are listed in the Projects list box.
  10. Select the Project from the list box.
  11. Type the URL of your TFS proxy. For example http://tfsproxyserver/DotNetTfsWebServiceProxy_deploy/TfsWebServiceProxy.asmx.
  12. Click Load Work Item Type. The Work Item Type list box is populated with the available work item types.
  13. Select the Work Item Type from the list box.
  14. Click Load Initial State. The Initial State list box is populated with the states that are allowed for the selected work item type.
  15. Click OK.

    Silk Central attempts a trial connection to the external system using the information you have provided.

    Note: If an error occurs, please review the information that you have supplied, or consult your administrator.
  16. If the trial connection is successful, a confirmation dialog box displays, asking you if you want to map internal issue states to the states of the newly defined profile.
    • Click Yes to proceed with the related Mapping Issue States procedure.
    • Click No to map issue states later.
