Making changes in one user store is modifying other user stories also RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can see that modifying the field in one user store is modifying the same field of other user stories automatically.

    Points

    1) User stories are independent . 

    2) User stories are assigned to different person.

    3) Not able to track which all the user stories are getting modified when i am changing one user story.

    4) Using TFS 2013

    5) Mainly stack filed is getting modified.

    Can you please help me to understand what is the cause of this.

  • Hi Uchitha Unni,

    Thank you for posting here.

    How did you modify the user story filed? Bulk modify or by changing the user story work item definition file or directly change the filed value via SQL query in sql server or just open a user story and change the filed value directly?

    • Bulk modify will affect several work items which you have selected.
    • The definition file is just the template of the user story. If you modify by editing the work item definition file (UserStory.xml), it will affect all the user stories.
    • If you change the filed value by sql query, please make sure you have added the conditional statements, (eg : UPDATE tablename set Fieldvalue = 'abcdef' WHERE ID = 'xxx')It would also affect all the user stories if you missed the conditional statements (WHERE).

    Normally it will not affect other user stories If you just open a user story and change its filed value. In this case, you can try to clean all the caches both in server and client or reboot the server them check it again.

    Best Regards.
