How to close someone else's Code Review Request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are using the built-in Code Review tool and finding that if someone leaves a team for example, there is no obvious way to Complete or Abandon an existing Code Review Request from that user.

    The reason this becomes an issue is that we are trying to create a query that shows all open Code Reviews to provide visibility for our Scrum Master/Product Owner and these old Code Review Requests add noise to the query.

    Can anyone provide any suggestions?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Burton,  

    Thanks for your post.

    Please try this workaround: create a work query to get all that user’s Code Review Request work items which in Requested state, save this work item query and open this query in Excel, then edit them work items in Excel to change the state to Closed, then click Publish button to publish the updates to TFS Server.

  • That worked!  I had to add the Closed Status column and set the value for all Code Review Responses to Declined.

    Thanks!
