I am currently investigating how to push data from Team Foundation Server to SharePoint.

Are there any connections available out of the box? Any useful online references? Third party tools?

    Have you thought about licensing? Everybody who is working with TFS data needs to have a license. There might be an exception for those who only create bugs and view their own created bugs: microsoft.com/download/en/… – Ewald Hofman Dec 21 '11 at 22:18
  • Pushing from TFS to SharePoint is actually rather unusual outside of the TFS/SP integration for dev purposes. Can you elaborate on what you are trying to accomplish? – Dave Wise Dec 21 '11 at 22:19

    @Ewald - You don't need CAL's to update work items - see here: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-SG/… – Russell Dec 21 '11 at 22:29
  • @Dave: I need to share some data with people who have SP access but not TFS access. – Christophe Dec 21 '11 at 22:59

    @Russel: the thread says that you don't need a CAL if you update work items you have created yourself! Updating work items created by others is not included. – Ewald Hofman Dec 22 '11 at 4:55

TFS can integrate with SharePoint by installing TFS on the SharePoint server (and installing the extension).

I have used it before and found it very valuable. It allow business users (non-devs) who may not have access to TFS to add work items/bugs etc. and check bug fix rates and do reporting.

This is an MSDN article about integrating TFS and SharePoint: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms253177.aspx

Here is an MSDN blog article with some extra links: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfsadmin/thread/4acefd21-725d-4107-ba9c-bdfa8fe54012/

There is a similar question on the same topic - TFS Project linking to sharepoint 2010 and I have posted a response that may be helpful. The approach would be to access the internals of TFS via its object model.
