Re: HP PPM integration with TFS

Hi,

Currently we do not have any plugin for TFS, however RnD is aware of this situation and they have logged an internal enhancement request to created it:

Enhancement QCCR1L38253 : Microsoft Team Foundation Server plug-in for PPM

There is not documentation for this. Nevertheless, there are seeded object types like "PVCS File Migration". Their commands could be inspected to figure out how to implement the integration of the version control system. It is possible to integrate PPM with any third part application that permits a command line interface. We have had several customers integrate PPM with version control systems such as RCS, pvcs and CVS. Each integration requires custom object types and commands for PPM to interact with the version control system via the command line. The integration is usually configured by the customer or by Professional Services consultants as this is considered a customization.

Re: HP PPM integration with TFS

Hi

 

We have been using PVCS for years.  I was curious how you have your object types setup to get your file revisions?  We have a filename field where the user can enter the  filename.  We then grab the file with the right promo group.   I tried to use file chooser, but its not really setup to show revision history.   We also have some workflows that use labels and scan for them to grab the file revisions.

 

Thanks

Re: HP PPM integration with TFS

Its definitely possible to integrate PPM with TFS. I did it about 4 years ago and I dont have any documentation on it now.

 

Since TFS is hosted on windows server, I used the cygwin utility with TFS command line commands to check out the code.Once the code was checked out, it can then be ftped across to your destination server. 

 

Thanks

Re: HP PPM integration with TFS

Hello Shiju,

 

Were you able to integrate TFS with Deployment management? As I would need some guidance on the same. I too have to integrate TFS with PPM Deployment management. Your inputs would be really helpful. Thanks.

Re: Integration HP PIMP with PVCS

We have been using it with our deployment workflows using 2 fields. 

PVCS source path using token = P_SUB_PATH       which is set to a directory chooser validation

another called PVCS Filename using token = P_ARCHIVE_FILENAME which uses file chooser validation.  

 

In the file chooser validation, I have the environment token set to [P_SRC_ENV]   and  this token is pointing to our PVCS server.  

 

When you create  a pkg line  you click source path and it jumps into the PDB and you select a folder in the PDB

Then after you select the folder you clicki nto the filename field, and this will jump into the PDB folder you selected

and show all the files in the pdb at that level.   You select and your done.  Note that ours shows -arc at the end

of the filename,   I have not found a way to prevent that.   Also, you can you the multi validations and when you click

that you can select more than one file at a time and PPM will auto create each line when you click done.  That is nice.

 

However one other point.  My experience with using all this is its not extrememly fast.  Sometimes when I click the directory chooser, PPM will take 1-2 min to connect and return the folder listings.  same can happen when clicking the

file chooser.  Some of our users have complained about this. 

 

If anyone has found better ways to manage this, please let me know.   Especially that are faster, dont include the -arc, dont allow users to traverse backwards up to other PDBS, or can do it in one field VS select the folder... then selecting the filename.
