How to Create Input Connection to Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS)




I am new to Alteryx and I wondering if anyone is using Designer to connect to TFS. I would like to directly access the database so that I don't have to export large excel files each time I need to query the data.

I don't use TFS myself, but i think it uses an SQL Server as repository, so the first approach will be to try to connect directly to the SQL Server.



I think probably TFS / VSTS's REST API is the way to get data out.
