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

Meteoroid

Hi,

 

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.

 

Thanks

Hi,

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.

 

Take a look at https://www.visualstudio.com/integrate/get-started/rest/basics

 

What are you trying to get out? Feels a fun one to look at :)
