    Hi,

    I have managed to add a new status called "Tested" for one of our project.
    How do I updated the base Scrum template XML used by Team Pulse so that new projects will have this "Tested" status by default?

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Hello Evan,

     From TeamPulse it is not possible to change the default templates. The only thing you can do is save the template and apply it through advanced settings each time a project with the same template is created.
     
    However, it is possible to change the default templates from the database. What you need to do is check the id of the project you have modified. You can find it in the url after "/#/Project/". Then open sql management studio and execute the following query:

    UPDATE [TeamPulse].[dbo].[ProjectTemplate]
       SET [Template] = (SELECT Settings FROM [TeamPulse].[dbo].[Project] WHERE ProjectID = {id of your modified project})
    WHERE Name = 'Scrum'
    GO

    This way from now on projects that use Scrum template will have the "Tested" status you have entered.

    Please let us know if that worked for you and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other question or suggestions.

    Hi Elena,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I notice that you have another template called "TeamPulse".
    Within that template it has "Ready For Test" status. That is kind what we are looking for.

    The question is if we use that template is possible to synchronize it with TFS?

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Hi Evan,

    The question is if we use that template is possible to synchronize it with TFS?
    You can if your TFS template has the same State and the required fields are available. You can learn more about the synchronization mappings here.
    You have two options. One is to change your existing TFS template (here) or to create a new project in TFS with our TeamPulse template (here).
    If you just want to add additional State my suggestion is to update that State for the work item and add the same in TeamPulse. Do not forget to update the transitions also.

    Hi Jordan,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Just to be clear this is what we have done:
    We have added "Ready for Test" status in our scrum template for TFS.

    What we want:
    Every new team pulse project that we created to have that status.

    I am assuming what we have to do is:
    Update the xml for scrum template in team pulse database to include the new status and the associated workflow.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Hi Evan,

     Yes, you are correct. You need to update existing scrum template in ProjectTeamplate table.
