Adding Report to Existing TFS 2017 Project

I had an issue where I couldn’t see reports for my TFS projects because they weren’t installed. I knew this because I opened SQL Reporting Services and I didn’t see a folder for my project under the TFS collection’s folder. I did a little digging and found a command that I could run to install the reports:

  1. Open administrator command prompt on server hosting TFS.
  2. Change directory to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 15.0\Tools
    Note: 64bit would be Program Files (x86)
  3. Run TFSConfig command to add project reports

TFSConfig addprojectreports /collection:”https://{TFSServerName}/{TFSCollectionName}” /teamproject:{TFSProjectName} /template:”Scrum”

You should replace the tokens with names that fit your context (remove the brackets). The template will be the template for your project:

  • Scrum – you will have backlog items under features
  • Agile – you will have stories under features

There’s another one, CMMI, but I’ve never used it. You should see a requirements work item, but I’m not sure if this template has a feature item.

Once you run the command, the reports will be added and you will be able to see how your team is doing by viewing the reports in SQL Reporting Services.
