Have you ever wanted a single place to see what all the fields are that are defined in Team Foundation Server?
Well now you can.
Here are two new resources you can use to look up a definition and quickly see which fields are written to the relational database and which are stored in the Analysis Services cube. These cover all the fields defined in the process templates that Team Foundation Server 2012 provides.
- Work Item Field Reference for Visual Studio ALM: Provides an index to all fields used in the default process templates that TFS 2012 provides. Each field links to a topic that describes the field and its default attribute assignments.
- Reportable Fields Reference for Visual Studio ALM: Provides a description of all fields that are reportable, and whether they appear in the cube, and which ones are a measure.
Here’s a snapshot of the index:
For an overview of the attributes that are defined for each field, see Work Item Field Attributes – What You Can and Can’t Change.
