Associating work items with change sets

If you associate a work item with a change set, you can use the work item as a central place for you and your team to verify changes made to change sets during the lifecycle of the work item.

About this task

You can associate a work item with a change set by dragging the work item from the Work Items window or the Work Item History folder of the Team Artifacts window to the change set in the Pending Changes window. You can also drag work items across change sets or components in the Pending Changes window for work item association.
Tip: You can drag work items from the Work Items window or the Work Item History folder of the Team Artifacts window to other applications that supports text drop such as WordPad.

Procedure

  1. In the Pending Changes window, navigate to the change set in the Outgoing folder, right-click the change set and click Associate Work Item.
  2. In the Select Work Items dialog box, do one of the following tasks:
    • If a work item is already created, enter the work item ID or summary text in Containing ID or text, and click OK. You can filter work items by selecting an option from Matching work items or by selecting the check boxes.
    • If you need to create a new work item, click Create new work item. Enter the work item details and click OK.

What to do next

You can now deliver the change set.
