    In TFS the priority backlog is ordered by stack rank, but in Teampulse there seems to be an arbitary field for ordering the backlog items, how do you propose the TFS backlog and Teampulse backlog are synched up to match each other?

    I'm familiar with the synch mappings so if there is a Teampulse field I can map to the stack rank that will be the best solution for me.

    Many thanks

    Hello Jonathan,

    We have similar field to Stack Rank called SequenceNumber. You can sync it with TFS field. You have to add a filed mapping to the Synchronization Mappings.

    <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="SequenceNumber" TeamPulseFieldType="double" DestinationFieldName="Microsoft.VSTS.Common.StackRank" DestinationFieldDisplayName="Stack Rank" DestinationFieldType="double" />

    You can read more about them in our documentation here.Regards,

    Hi Jonathan,

    I've made a mistake in the previous post. Instead of SequenceNumber you have to use the BacklogPriority.

    <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="BacklogPriority" TeamPulseFieldType="double" DestinationFieldName="Microsoft.VSTS.Common.StackRank" DestinationFieldDisplayName="Stack Rank" DestinationFieldType="double" />



    All the best,

    Is there a way of keeping both sequence number and backlog priority in synch as some screens (i.e. Assign Bugs) you only have sequencenumber and no backlogpriority?

    Thanks

    I'd vote for that.

    Hi Guys,

     There is currently no way to keep both of these in sync and we are looking at fixing this is a future release.  Thanks very much for your feedback.

    Kind regards,
