    Is there any plans to have API for writing TeamPulse addons, since many (or all?) of TeamPulse users are programmers and people have very different needs or habits. I know that there are project templates and that can help alot to customize things. But it would be awesome to write some scripts/code to automate some things on various events etc.

    I am just interested is there any plans for something like that :)

    Hi Antonio,

    Yes, we have many plans for TeamPulse integration points. We are looking into providing an API for directly interfacing with our entities and data structures beyond the existing, undocumented WCF Data Service endpoint.

    Furthermore, we plan to make the Best Practice Analyzer available for customer-written plug-ins to be added, which will allow custom best practices to be applied when analyzing your projects.

    In terms of event-driven integration points, we do not forsee anything like that at this time. Do you have any specific events or drivers for actions you would like to take? We are interested in hearing any and all ideas that can lead us to further improving our product for our users.

    Best wishes,

    I would like to execute some code/script when story is changed. So I can automatically change something in that story or other related stories or even some other system or application.

    Real usage for me would be this:

    QA people are using MantisBT as a bugtracker, and they are really like it, and there is a significant knowledge in that system. So I would like to connect these two apps, for example trough templates add some fields to stories/tasks and store information about related Mantis posts, so when my story or task status becomes "Done" I would like note that in Mantis or even change status of related Mantis post.

    Hello Antonio,

    Thanks very much for the feedback.  Integration of TeamPulse with other systems in scenarios like you describe is definitely on our radar.  There are a few integration points in TeamPulse right now that can be leveraged but none that support an eventing "push" feature such as you request.  

    We are preparing a blog that we will be publishing very shortly which will describe the existing integration points in TeamPulse.  You can find TeamPulse blogs here.  Hopefully you will see something there that will allow for your integration scenario.
