Team Foundation Server Support¶
Power Pack adds support for using Review Board for code review when using Team Foundation Server 2013 for source code hosting. Power Pack supports both TFVC and Git repositories hosted via TFS.
Adding a TFS repository is done using the same procedures as adding any other repository. See Repositories for the basic steps of adding and configuring a repository.

Repository type. Once selected, add the fully-qualified path to the
TFS server and collection (i.e.

To create a TFS Git repository, select (None - Custom Repository)

Team Foundation Server (git) for the Repository type.
Once selected, add the fully-qualified clone path for the repository (i.e.

For both cases, add your domain login credentials to the Username and Password fields.
The RBTools command-line tools include support for posting pending changes against TFS repositories. This currently requires the tf.cmd command, which is included in Visual Studio 2013 (Update 3 and below), and in Team Explorer Everywhere (which runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux).
If you are running Visual Studio 2013 Update 4, you’ll need to install Team Explorer Everywhere to get tf.cmd. In Update 4, this was replaced with a new version called tf.exe which is missing several crucial features.
