If you are setting up to run Team Foundation Server’s vNext build system that Microsoft is previewing on VSO you may hit a “Unable to load task handler PowerShell for task VSBuild with version 1.0.1” error when you try to build on Windows Server Technical Preview.
I am going to show how to create a Build.vNext build definition on VSO. Microsoft recently announced the creation of a brand new build system for TFS and VSO at the Connect event last year. This new build system will eventually replace the current one and be much more modular and friendly. Happily I am in the early adopter program and the product team just made an early alfa of the service available for that program and I have been giving it a spin.
I have been working through my demos for NDC London next week. And I found it almost impossible to create log entries in Release Management where I wanted.
Using the TFS 2013 API along with a little PowerShell we can add a ‘team field’ to our global list.
Have you ever wanted to use PowerShell to interact with the TFS 2013 API? Well I have been working through a few scenarios and wanted to get them to you so that I can get some feedback.
There are many reasons that you would want to Create a Portfolio Backlog hierarchy in Team Foundation Server 2013 not least of which is modelling your existing processes.
You want to upgraded to the Visual Studio Scrum 3.0 Process Template in Team Foundation Server 2013 but you really want to upgrade your whole process template in place and not jut enable new features.
Users coming from a SharePoint 2010 system that try to access SharePoint 2013 after a migration receive a “this site has not been shared with you” message. This mean that they are not able to authenticate to SharePoint 2013.
Did you know that you could be writing .NET in PowerShell? PowerShell can be used to instanciate and call any .NET object and that includes the TFS API.
Running a remote execute PowerShell against each Windows 8 VM on your Hyper-V host can help you maintain the guest VM’s in a minimal amount of time.
