Reportable fields reference for Visual Studio ALM

A default set of fields appears in the relational warehouse database or the cube. The following tables list those reportable fields defined in the default process templates provided with the current release of Team Foundation Server. These fields have a reportable attribute value of Detail, Dimension, or Measure. See Add or modify work item fields to support reporting.

For a complete list of fields that are defined in the default process templates, see Work item field reference for Visual Studio ALM. If you upgraded a team project, you may need to perform additional tasks before you can work with some of these fields. For more information, see Configure features after a TFS upgrade.
