Delete TFS 2010 Work Items

פברואר 18, 2010

Many customers ask me about deleting Work Items from the TFS.

Here is how to do it for TFS 2010:

Step 1: Log-in to the TFS using a TFS administrator user.

Step 2: Open a command line and go to:

32bit machine – “X:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common 7\IDE”
64bit machine – “X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common 7\IDE”

Step 3: Use the “witadmin.exe destroywi” command in the following way:

witadmin.exe destroywi /Collection:http:\\[ServerName]:8080\tfs\[CollectionName] /id:[WI ID]

you can add as many Work Item IDs as you like using [,] for example 54,88,92 etc.

You can disable the prompt message by using /noprompt.

    What if you don't have witadmin.exe? (I have TFS installed on a workstation, though I'm not sure if that is the reason I don't have witadmin.exe.)

    The witadmin.exe comes with the Team Explorer installation and not with the TFS installation.

    All you have to do is just to install the Team Explorer 2010 and you will have it!

    Have Fun!!!
