TFS Synchronization and Migration

Martin Hinshelwood recently posted about the current state of TFS sync and migration tools here and while I thought the post was very detailed and covered the market pretty well I think he did miss one smaller tool that I’ve used with some success:  TFS Bug Item Synchronizer .

Now I don’t know what his criteria was for the article and if perhaps this tool didn’t fall into some category but I definitely think it is worth a look especially for smaller companies with smaller budgets or even TFS teams that might not need one of the huge enterprise solutions.  (and it even has a trial period)

From the product site

 

TFS Bug Item Synchronizer is an tool which allows testing and development teams to work together using tools built for their usage. Testers enter defects in Quality Center and when defect is created and updated into TFS, developer can fix it, link all changes to it and mark it as fixed. After this the tester will continue process on Quality Center side to verify the fix.

 

I implemented this product last year and like most sync tools it takes a little up front work and definitely some understanding of how TFS works but the support  that was available was incredibly helpful and you can’t beat the price point.

So hopefully this will add one more tool to what seems to be an ever growing list of tools in this space.   Now if we can just get one that requires little to no configuration  ;)

  1. Ben. My criteria required the migration of Test Cases. 😊 and unfortunate the tool that you mentioned does not sync anything other than bugs…
