In the previous we saw the different steps to go from v2 to MS Scrum templates.
Now I will touch in each of the steps, but skipping the first one
2- Tools for Migration, the unique TFS Integration platform.
The tool covers in details any of the strategies to follow, I suspect that this is material is difficult to follow when you want to go forward quickly, so I provide one of the ways, not necessarily the most systematic or recommended, if you have the time probably the best way should be, do it aside and then if all is good do it again for real. But as I don't have the time for testing I will do the process in a single shot.
The Risk: Not much, if fail define the real as demo and start again. The produced workitems can be destroyed (not friendly interface but possible) and the sourcecontrol too.
And as I said before: No risk, no chance.
First step: You will need to change your project, I know this is a lack in the continuity of the project but look at this a necessarily change, even if you could you will prefer to leave the current project unchanged for sure.
Install the TFS integration platform (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Team Foundation Server Integration Tools)
Start to read the documentation in Getting Started
(Required time: from 0 to Days)
After Installing you expect the template to be there when you create a project, but for that you will need an extra step.
Open VS2010 or team explorer shell and from menu open the Process Template Explorer
The following dialog will be open…
Probable you will have the v2 here as result of the upgrade (You have the template as part of the Upgrade even that you didn't and can't install it because of the v2 limitations with TFS 2010)
To add the MS Scrum select Upload and select the template folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 1.0\Process Template)
After that go through the wizard to create a project, in template step you will have the new one
Project creation takes time… (some minutes)
Then you will have your project based MS scrum.
This is your target project! You will transfer the workitems and/or sourcecontrol and/or changesets to it
The migration process takes time, you have done the easy step.
The longest journey starts with a single step…
