VisualStudio.com Repositories


VisualStudio.com support requires a license of Power Pack. You can download a trial license or purchase a license for your team.

Review Board supports posting and reviewing code on VisualStudio.com repositories. Existing commits in a repository can be browsed and put up for review.

The following types of Assembla repositories are supported:

  • Git

  • TFS

To simplify posting changes to Review Board, we recommend using RBTools. This ensures that the diffs are in the correct format, and makes managing review requests much easier. If you’re using TFS, this is a requirement.

Adding the Repository

To configure a VisualStudio.com repository, first proceed to add the repository and select VisualStudio.com from the Hosting type field.

Step 2: Provide Repository Information

Next, you’ll need to fill out the following fields:

VisualStudio.com account name:

The account name for your team. This is the my_account in https://my_account.visualstudio.com/.

VisualStudio.com project name:

The name of your project on VisualStudio.com.

This is only required for Git repositories, and is not used for TFS.

VisualStudio.com repository name:

The name of your Git repository on VisualStudio.com.

This is only required for Git repositories, and is not used for TFS.

Step 3: Choose a Bug Tracker

You can specify a bug tracker on another service. At the time of this writing, support for bug trackers on VisualStudio.com is not supported.

Learn more about bug tracker configuration.

Step 4: Manage Access Control

You can now choose who should have access to this repository (both posting against it and viewing review requests posted against it). This is separate from VisualStudio.com’s own access controls.

Learn more about access control.

Step 5: Save the Repository

At this point, you should be able to save the repository. If saving succeeds, you’re done! You can start posting changes for review.
