Sharepoint integration in TFS Express? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am currently testingTFS Express and wonder if there is a possiblity to integrate it with SharePoint Foundation 2010.

    On several pages I have read that such integration is not possible.

    On the other hand, I find in the ISO from the TFS directory express a directory named like "SharePoint extension" ... This makes me suspect that an integration is possible.

    Does anyone know the answer to this?

    Thank you very much

  • Hi Gernot,

    As you correctly noticed, tfs express does not integrate with sharepoint. 

    The Express edition is essentially the same TFS as you get when you install the TFS Basic wizard except that the install is trimmed down and streamlined to make it incredibly fast and easy. In addition to the normal TFS Basic install limitations (no Sharepoint integration, no reporting), TFS Express:

    1. Is limited to no more than 5 named users.
    2. Only supports SQL Server Express Edition (which we’ll install for you, if you don’t have it)
    3. Can only be installed on a single server (no multi-server configurations)
    4. Includes the Agile Taskboard but not sprint/backlog planning or feedback management.
    5. Excludes the TFS Proxy and the new Preemptive analytics add-on.

    And if you want more of the standard TFS features, you can upgrade to a full TFS license without losing any data.

    So, unless you avail the TFS full license you will not be able to upgrade to using the share point integration.
