 HI ,

What is the  difference between TARGET_PROPERTY and FOUND_IN_PROPERTY?
 I understand that the two arguments mean iterations in which there is WorkItem

Hi Robert,

"Found_In" conceptually means the release or stable configuration in which a defect was detected, so that further investigation starts on the correct version of the code base.

"Planned_for" means the target iteration. This field points to the timeline and iterations defined in the associated project area. If you file a work item against a certain iteration by setting its "Planned_for" attribute, it becomes visible in plans for that timeline.

Example 1: a new enhancement request is created. When setting its "Planned_for" to "backlog", it would become visible in a Backlog plan. When setting the "Planned_for" to "Sprint 1.0", it would become visible in the Sprint 1.0 plan. Since it is a new request, you would not set the "Found_in" attribute on that work item.

Example 2: a defect is found in V2.1 of a software. Creating a work item of type defect you would populate the "Found_in" with "V2.1" (or the actual name of the release). After triage and estimation the "Planned_for" would be filled with the timeline in which the defect is planned to be fixed.
