TFS 2010 API - Create WorkItems(Bugs)

TFS 2010 API - Create WorkItems(Bugs)

WorkItems(Bugs) can be filed in an automated way by using TFS 2010 API

You first need to add a reference to Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.dll and Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client

These dll can be found under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies

The below code describes how to create a Bug

// Supply the credentials of the user who will be impersonated to create the bug

ICredentials credentials = new NetworkCredential(userName, password, domain);                       

TfsTeamProjectCollection tfs = new TfsTeamProjectCollection(new Uri("http://<server>:8080/tfs/<collection>"), credentials); 

WorkItemStore workItemStore = (WorkItemStore)tfs.GetService(typeof(WorkItemStore));

WorkItemTypeCollection workItemTypes = workItemStore.Projects[teamProject].WorkItemTypes;

// Define the Work Item type as Bug

WorkItemType workItemType = workItemTypes["Bug"];

// Assign values to each mandatory field

workItem = new WorkItem(workItemType);

// testcaseID is the ID of the test case which failed in a test run. Refer for how to obtain this ID

workItem.Fields["System.Title"].Value = "Testcase #" + testcaseID + " - CI Bug";

workItem.Fields["System.AssignedTo"].Value = "Test Team";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Severity"].Value = "1-Critical";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Priority"].Value = "1";

workItem.Fields["System.AreaPath"].Value = "Area";

workItem.Fields["System.IterationPath"].Value = "Iteration";

workItem.Fields["System.State"].Value = "Proposed";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.ED.Type"].Value = "Code Defect";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.ED.BugSource"].Value = "Customer";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.FoundInEnvironment"].Value = "7-Continuous Integration";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.Build.FoundIn"].Value = build;

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.HowFound"].Value = "Automated Test";

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.Symptom"].Value = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode("Symptom");

workItem.Fields["Microsoft.VSTS.TCM.ReproSteps"].Value = "CI Run";

// Link the failed test case to the Bug

workItem.Links.Add(new RelatedLink(testcaseID));

// Check for validation errors before saving the Bug

ArrayList validationErrors = workItem.Validate();

if (validationErrors.Count == 0)
    Console.WriteLine(message + _workItem.Id);
       foreach (Field field in validationErrors)
              Console.WriteLine("Validation Error in field " + field.ReferenceName);

Similarly other types of work items can be created by defining the work item type as workItemTypes["Task"],  workItemTypes["Test Case"], etc
