Import work item type definition - TFS 2017 error (Error while copying content to a stream) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently upgraded from TFS 2015 Update 2.1 to TFS 2017 Update 2.

    We are using a customized version of the Scrum 2013.4 and I had to create a new TFS project. I created the project and went to import some WIT files like I normally do.

    I am importing with the TFS Team Project Manager Tool and getting the following error:

    "Validating Work Item Type Definition: Bug for Team Project (project name)

    Error while copying content to stream."

    How can I resolve this?

    Yeah I tried to use witadmin and that worked.

    However.. I am concerned why I am unable to use the tool with TFS 2017 update 2.. Any ideas?

     TFS Team Project Manager Tool is not the official tool, maybe with some issues with TFS 2017 update 2 or later version. 

    You can use the official tool TFS Process Template Editor or witadmin command to  Import, export, and manage work item types

    Best Regards.
