  • Hi Chris,

    This will depend on your situation. Usability is the main issue.
    If you are a developer with TFS integrated into Visual Studio then stick with that.
    But if you are a help desk user or project manager (depending on how you use JIRA) then the JIRA interface is likely to be much easier and more intuitive.

    But both are excellent products. The attraction with JIRA for many companies is the ease of logging timesheets against work items – something that TFS still lacks.

    Cheers,
    Craig

  • We have multiple projects in our JIRA installation, some for support tickets, others for management of our third party products and another project for our internal development. TFS is the source control tool we are using for internal development, which has us duplicating creation of stories in JIRA and work items in TFS. We would love to see Atlassian build a plugin to TFS like they have for Subversion!

  • Recently Microsoft came in and did a demo of TFS 2010 … Pretty impressive. This is the direction we will be going… such a plugin is no longer a nice to have but a real need.

  • We are very much interested in Jira integration with TFS 2008 . Is this something we can expect in near future?

  • Chris,
    It would be beneficial to build the TFS integration as it will then allow a more seemless interaction when creating bugs and tasks within TFS that in our organisation are then referenced back in Jirra by our PMs and BAs.
    It would also allow people to work smarter and avoid a duplication of information, not to mention make things more transparent across different teams.

  • TFS plugin for JIRA is very useful especially for companies that still use JIRA for issues/bugs tracking and looking to use TFS for souce control.

  • We’re a 50/50 Java/.NET shop, so an integration between Jira and TFS is pretty much a must for us.

    Thanks,

  • Hello guys,
    we are using TFS as VCS and there are some commercial reasons for that.
    and OnTime as bug-tracking system, but it has to be changed.

    Jira is one of the preferable products to use, but no TFS integration which is very desired.
    Otherwise we’ll chose for Jetbrains products which have integration with TFS.
    Wait for your input.

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    I’d like to know the benefits of using TFS over Jira. I’m a pure QA, which is more suitable to me.?

    Thanks,
