TFS 2008 – HP Quality Center (QC) Connector


Allows Quality Center 9.2 users to synchronize their Defects with Work Items in TFS 2008.  This synchronization can be performed interactively with a Windows (GUI) application or as a background task (running as a service).  The Connector is built on the TFS Synchronization Toolkit and is available for download from Microsoft Connect.

The Connector itself is free. It does, however, require a TFS CAL and a Quality Center CAL.  This is the second pre-release with the next one (due later this month) planned as the formal Beta release. If you have any questions about the Connector, please contact Jim Lamb.

Features of the Connector
  • Synchronize Quality Center Defects with TFS Work Items 
  • Map enumerated values (i.e. priority, severity)
  • Map aliases in QC to display names in TFS and vice versa
  • Synchronize attachments
  • Synchronize links to other defects/work items

  1. How or who do I need to contact to get the lateste version of the connector? I\’ve looked at Micorsoft connect and it is still the December release. I\’ve emailed Jim Lamb and never got a response. I\’ve put out a post on the Microsoft forum and nothing. Any help would be appreciated.
