Using 3rd party Git tools with TFS 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • If we setup and activate Git support with a new TFS 2015 deployment and then create some new Git repos via Visual Studio 2015, then I know we can use VS 2015 to push changes to TFS but can we also use 3rd party tools like SmartGit or SourceTree or is TFS some how locked or restricted so that ONLY Visual Studio can interact with the server?

  • any 3rd party tool should work with Git repo on TFS as long as the tool could authenticate against TFS either using windows credential manager, passing plain text user/password on commnad line etc.
