Integrate Aha! With Microsoft VSTS and TFS
Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and Team Foundation Server (TFS) provide an integrated, collaborative environment for software developers. Both offerings include the same essential capabilities, such as source code management, continuous integration, and agile tools. The main difference is that VSTS is a cloud-based solution that is available through a web browser or IDE client, while TFS is an on-premise offering.
Aha! provides a two-way integration that allows you to do your product planning in Aha! and then send features into VSTS or TFS for the engineering team to work on. Real-time updates keep you informed on progress every step of the way.
You decide how you want your integration to work. Choose which records you want to send to VSTS or TFS — including initiatives, releases, master features, features, and requirements. You also have full control over your field mappings and the direction of updates.
Our integration wizard lets you configure your integration with VSTS or TFS with no hassle. We also provide detailed instructions in the Aha! support documentation.
You need to be a product owner in Aha! to set up the integration. You will also need access to your VSTS or TFS account and have the ability to create records. This allows you to:
- Create the integration in Aha!
- Authenticate using your VSTS or TFS username and password.
- Select the VSTS or TFS project, area, and team that you want to integrate with.
- Map your Aha! records to corresponding record types in VSTS or TFS.
- Add the webhook to your VSTS or TFS account.
Once you have created an integration with VSTS or TFS, you can directly import your feature backlog using the import from development system functionality.
