How to: Open Changesets from Work Items

If your team uses Team Foundation version control to store code, you can now tie a work item to the code change that addresses it.

Required Permissions

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

To open a changeset linked to a work item

  1. In Team Explorer, open the team project, open Work Items, and then search for the work item you need.

  2. Double-click the work item to open it and then click the Links tab.

  3. Select the changeset you want to open.

  4. Click Open. Team Foundation version control displays the changeset details.
