Team Queries (CMMI)

You can use the team queries that are provided with MSF for CMMI Process Improvement v5.0 to list the requirements, tasks, bugs, and other work items for which you must take action. Each query is designed to find only work items that are defined for the team project from which they are accessed.

You can open these queries from Team Explorer by expanding your team project node, expanding Work Items, and then expanding Team Queries. All team queries list work items that are defined for the team project. Team queries whose query type is Work Items and Direct Links Query or Tree Query may also list linked work items that are defined for another team project.

NoteNote

To access work item queries, you must have the appropriate permissions. For more information, see Organize and Set Permissions on Work Item Queries and Team Foundation Server Permissions.

If you are new to Team Foundation and team queries, you can review the following tips for an overview of how you can manage work more effectively by using team queries:

  • You can find work items that are assigned to you by opening one of the "My" team queries. To open a query, right-click it, and then click Open or View Results.

  • You can find work items that are neither resolved nor closed by using any of the Active or Open team queries. For example, the Open Work Items query lists all work items, except for shared steps, that are not closed.

  • You can modify any query by adding criteria to focus on a product area, an iteration, or another field that is defined for the types of work items that you want to find. To modify a query, right-click it, and then click Edit. For more information, see Specify Query Filter Criteria.

  • You can open any query in Office Excel and Office Project, where you can modify the query and publish your changes to the database for tracking work items. For more information, see Create, Open, and Modify Work Items Using Office Excel.

For more information about how to work with work item queries, see Finding Bugs, Tasks, and Other Work Items.

You can find the work items that are assigned to you by using one of the team queries that the following table describes.

Team Query

Description

My Test Cases

Lists all test cases that are not closed and that are assigned to the team member who is running the query. Test cases are sorted by priority and then ID.

My Work Items

Lists all work items, excluding shared steps, that are not closed and that are assigned to the team member who is running the query. Work items are sorted by rank, priority, type, and ID.

Team members can use the team queries that are described in the following table to track the status of development and test tasks and active and resolved bugs.

Team Query

Description

Active Bugs

Lists all active bugs and sorts them by rank, priority, and severity.

Development Tasks

Lists all tasks whose Discipline is set to Development. Tasks are sorted by ID.

My Test Cases

Lists all test cases that are not closed and that are assigned to the team member who is running the query. Test cases are sorted by priority and then ID.

Open Tasks

Lists all tasks that are not closed, sorted by rank, priority, and then ID.

Open Test Cases

Lists all test cases that are not closed, sorted by priority and then ID.

Resolved Bugs

Lists all resolved bugs that are defined for the team project, sorted by rank, priority, and severity.

Test Tasks

Lists all tasks whose Discipline is set to Test, sorted by ID.

Product owners can use the team queries that are described in the following table to track the status of requirements and untriaged work.

Team Query

Description

Customer Requirements

Lists all requirements, sorted by ID, that have been identified as Scenario or Quality of Service work items.

Product Requirements

Lists all requirements, sorted by ID, that have been identified as Functional, Operational, Security, Safety, or a Feature.

Open Requirements

Lists all requirements that are not closed, sorted by iteration ID, priorty, and then work item ID.

Open Requirements without Test Cases

Lists all requirements that are not closed and that do not have a Tested By link to a test case, sorted by work item ID.

Open Work Items

Lists all work items except shared steps that are not closed. Work items are sorted by rank, priority, type, and then ID.

Proposed Work Items

Lists all proposed work items, sorted by rank, priority, iteration, area, triage, and then work item ID.

Reviews

Lists all reviews, sorted by work item ID.

Untriaged Work Items

Lists all requirements, tasks, change requests, bugs, and issues that have not been closed or triaged. The Triage field for these work items is set to Pending, More Info, or Info Received.

Work items are sorted by state, triage, rank, priority, iteration, and area.

Work Breakdown

Lists all requirements that are not closed and their child requirements or tasks.

Work Items With Summary Values

Lists all tasks that have child tasks and that contain non-zero values for the Remaining Work or Completed Work fields. This query is designed to find tasks that report work effort that is already accounted for in their child tasks. For the hours to be counted only once, summary tasks should not be assigned any hours.

For more information, see Address Inaccuracies Published for Summary Values.

Product owners can use the team queries that are described in the following table to track change requests and dependencies that have been identified between change requests and requirements.

Team Query

Description

Change Requests

Lists all change requests, sorted by ID.

Open Change Requests with Requirements

Lists change requests that are not closed and their linked requirements, sorted by ID. Only change requests that are linked to a requirement with a link type of Affects appears in the list.

Requirements with Open Change Requests

Lists requirements and the change requests that are not closed and that depend on them, sorted by ID. Only requirements that are linked to a change request with a link type of Affected By are listed.

Product owners can use the team queries that are described in the following table to troubleshoot issues and risks to the product schedule.

Team Query

Lists

Blocked Work Items

Lists all work items where the Blocked field is set to Yes.

Only requirements, tasks, bugs, issues, and change requests can be blocked.

Corrective Action Status

The Issues Workbook references this query. For more information, see Issues Workbook (CMMI).

Risks

Lists all risks, sorted by ID.

The following team Office Excel workbooks are supported by the listed team queries:

  • The Issues workbook uses the Open Issues team query.

  • The Triage workbook uses the Untriaged Work Items team query.

You can use these workbooks to review open issues and to rank and assign untriaged work items.

Caution noteCaution

Because these queries support workbooks, if you change these queries, it will affect those workbooks that use them. For more information about workbooks, see Workbooks (CMMI).
