TFS 2010 Aggregator for different WI types

Jun 19, 2011 at 8:45 AM


i have been using the TFS Aggregator for Tasks on Bugs and PBI's. this works great !

what i want , is to use it for different WI types - Like Tasks on User Stories or Requirements.

is it possible ?

i want to add that what i need to aggragate is the "Work Remaining" field on the Story or Requirement.

TFS aggregator supports most any work item type.  It just needs to be setup in the config file (as shown on the home page).

tnx for the answer

this is what i had setup :

  <!--Add the time from the task up to the parent (Bug or PBI)-->
  <AggregatorItem operationType="Numeric" operation="Sum" linkType="Parent" linkLevel="1" workItemType="Task">
    <TargetItem name="Baseline Work"/>
    <SourceItem name="Baseline Work"/>

Yet when i create a UserStory, and connect tasks to it , the Baseline Work field does not add up.

what am i doing wrong ?

weirdly , it seems to be working now, after a restart to the FTS service.

thanks very much for the assistance
