How can we link a defect to a build apart from using the build result and is there a way to create a build result manually

Hello,

Is there any way to link a defect to a build apart from using the build result

Can we create a build result manually?

Thanks

No, there is no way to link a build to a work item other than the build result. The build result is the only meaningful artifact representing a build.
You can not "manually" create build results, other than running a build. You can probably use the API for that, but what is the purpose? The Build result links SCM, Build and work items together.

You might want to explain what you really want to do.

If you are looking for how to create entries in the "Found In" deliveries attribute of work item, you can either create a release from the build result in the Eclipse client, or you can create a new release in the Project Configuration.

Hi Ralph,

Thanks for your swift response. The purpose is to migrate build results from another tool to capture details like Fixed IN and Verified In parameters.

thanks

You might be able to create build results with the Build system toolkit or using the Java API. I haven't tried that, so I can't provide any more details.

As a side note. I am not a big fan of migrating all the data over from another tool. this is usually only cumbersome and wastes money.

In all most all cases you should be able to keep the old system up for some time.

Migrate the minimum required amount of data. Then keep the old system running. After 3 to 6 month limit access to it and wait for complains. If you haven't heard anything after a year, backup the data and switch it off.
