For basic integration information, please see:  ‘Integrating With Third-Party Bug Tracking Systems’


Helpful Hint:  For easier tracking, create a new user within your user system with €œApplause€ in the name. This will help you quickly locate bugs exported from Applause  into Microsoft TFS.  

After selecting Microsoft TFS  for your new connector, you will be presented with a number of fields.

  • URL:  Configure your web-based access to Microsoft TFS.
  • User:  Case sensitive login credentials for your Microsoft TFS  implementation.
  • Password:  Case sensitive login credentials for your Microsoft TFS  implementation.
  • Project Name:  Case sensitive, and need to exist in your Microsoft TFS  system prior to connector configuration. Bugs will be assigned  the specified Project name as a default value.

Visual Studio Team Services:

The Microsoft TFS connector will work with Visual Studio Online as well.

  1. Add the collection to the end of the URL: ->
    To find the collection name, just login to the TFS and it will appear in the url.
  2. Get the password by following these steps: Personal Access Token

NOTE:   We do not support two step authentication at this time, only basic authentication.
