Gated checkins and associated workitems

Jul 7, 2011 at 6:13 AM

I've just added your plugin to TFS and it works great.

We've got an interesting scenario however - we use gated checkins on our destination branch.

This still works ok with the plugin, but I suspect because a gated checkin works off a shelveset, it means that the option in the build process template to 'Associate Changesets and Work Items' appears to happen before the work items are linked to the changeset.

So then the work items don't get updated with the details from the destination changeset.

I'm not sure if this is something that could be fixed in the plugin, or by modifying the process template.

Same issue here... People are interested in getting a list of Associated Work Items, issued from a Merge, directly in the Build Report.
But it doesn't "work" as expected with Gated Check-ins as the check-in in only made after the Build => no Work Items Associated until that check-in.
