Spira Build Server Plugin for MS TFS Released

Date 2015/8/14 8:15:46 | Topic: Product News

Inflectra has announced the release of the Spira Build Server Plugin for the Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) build server. This plugin allows you to integrate the build management features of TFS with Spira. This is in addition to our existing source code plugin for TFS and Visual Studio IDE integration.
How does SpiraTeam work with Build Servers?

SpiraTeam includes the ability to integrate with a variety of continuous integration / automated build servers so that the results of automated builds can be displayed in SpiraTeam linked to the associated release or iteration. In addition, the results of automated tests and source code operations can be linked to the build events, providing traceability from a specific build to the bugs that were fixed, tests that were run and source code files that were modified.

Microsoft Team Foundation Server (commonly abbreviated to TFS) is a Microsoft product offering source control, data collection, reporting, and build management, and is intended for collaborative software development projects. It is available either as stand-alone software, or as the server side back end platform for Visual Studio Team System (VSTS).

When you use the SpiraTeam Build-Server Plug-In for TFS, it will allow you to associate each TFS project with a corresponding project and release in SpiraTeam. Then, each time TFS creates a new build, a new build artifact will be created in SpiraTeam. Each build in SpiraTeam will be automatically linked to the incidents fixed, tasks implemented, tests executed, requirements developed and source code revisions committed.
