I would like to have the ability to connect to TFS via sharepoint 2010 and extract specific details out of the tfs projects that would already exist. I have been doing a research and have come up with nothing other than the fact that tfs has a sharepoint portal.

  • What kind of data do you want to extract? – Servy Jun 8 '12 at 15:21
  • I want to extract the work items and make it an issue tracking list in sharepoint and also extract the source control and make it a code base repository. – wayne9999 Jun 8 '12 at 17:09

Team Foundation Server provides reporting capabilities that can show various indicators of your development life cycle (ALM) - Creating Reports for Team Foundation Server 2010. You can also customize the reports - Creating, Customizing, and Managing Reports for Visual Studio ALM.

UPDATE: While there are integration points between TFS and SharePoint, I think what you are seeking would need programmatic access to the internals of TFS and Extending Team Foundation (via its object model).

Other examples that may be helpful in your case -

  • I am wondering if i can try and connect to tfs database and build my queries from that source, or if tfs has a pre-built Cube – wayne9999 Jun 8 '12 at 17:35
  • I have updated my response above based on your additional comments - I don't think SharePoint integration to TFS by itself would provide the answer. You'll need to access the internals of TFS via its object-model (programmatically). – Supriyo SB Chatterjee Jun 8 '12 at 18:46
