In our latest release of the Team Services Plugin for IntelliJ, you can quickly and easily associate your Team Services or Team Foundation Server work items with your commits. The workflow is as simple as it can be:
1. Click on the “Select Work Items” button in the Commit Dialog to see a list of work items assigned to you
2. Select one or more work items and click OK
The Select Work Items dialog shows all work items (like bugs or users stories) from the repository’s project that are currently assigned to you. Once you hit OK, we update the commit message with the work item details. The #id tag will tell the server to make the association when the changes are pushed. Simple and elegant, this feature doesn’t get in the developer’s way or change their workflow in any way.
Check out this video for a demo of this new feature.
You can find the VSTS Plugin for IntelliJ here or simply search from within IntelliJ or Android Studio for the “Visual Studio Team Services” plugin.
