TFS Aggregator vs. SfTS Aggregation Service

Dec 15, 2011 at 8:22 AM

We are using "Scrum for Team System" templates. These templates are working with a special Aggregation Service. Do somebody know whether it's possible to deal with both - TFS Aggregator and Aggregation Service? I'd like to use the Aggregation Service because there are a lot of predefined rules but any change in the rules calls for a restart of the TFS what I don't like.

I have never tested using this service combined with SfTS aggregation service.

My Guess is that it could lead to circular updates.  I would not recommend it (thought it could work if there was no overlap in fields that are updated).

As for the Restart, when you drop the file in for TFS Aggregator, it restarts the sever.  (TFS needs to reset to get those processes updated.  There is no realistic way around that.)
