How to: Go To Specific Work Items

Work item IDs are unique across all work item types in all team projects on a Team Foundation Server. If you know the ID of the work item that you want to find, you can go to that work item. If you do not have the ID, you can also search for specific work items by using queries. For more information, see How to: Add New Work Item Queries.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Readers group or have the View work items in this node permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To go to specific work items

  1. On the Team menu, click Go To Work Item, or right-click the Work Items node for your team project, and then click Go To Work Item.

  2. In the Go to Work Item dialog box, in the ID box, type the ID number.
