New and updated DevLabs extensions in the Visual Studio Team Services Marketplace
Microsoft DevLabs is an outlet for experiments from Microsoft, experiments that represent some of the latest ideas around developer tools. Solutions in this category are designed for broad usage, and you are encouraged to use and provide feedback on them; however, these extensions are not supported nor are any commitments made as to their longevity.
Since Connect last year, we have been busy creating new and updating extensions in the Visual Studio Team Services Marketplace.
Here’s a little bit about them…
- Countdown Widget NEW
Counts down to a configurable moment in time.
- File Owner NEW
Simplifies the process of determining ownership of a file.
- Folder Management
Quickly create a folder in your Visual Studio Team Services source repositories from the web. No need to clone the repository locally or install extra tools.
- Print Cards
Print cards from your backlog for use on a physical scrum board.
- Sample Data NEW
Create sample data in your Team Services project.
- Show Area Path Dependencies NEW
Show area path dependencies a team has with other teams.
- Test Case Explorer
Manage your test cases better. Find, filter, analyze usage of test cases, and more.
- TFVC Branch Hierarchy Visualization NEW
Visualize your TFVC branch hierarchies
- Work Item Visualization
Visualize relationships between work items from within the work item form.
Other recent extensions and tooling solutions worth mentioning are:
- AAD OAuth2 provider for SonarQube
This plug-in enables Azure Active Directory (AAD) users to automatically be sign up (a login is created if they don’t have one already) and authenticated on a SonarQube server.
- Migration of release management assets from RM server to VSTS
Migrate assets from 2015 or 2013 U4 RM server to 2015 TFS server, and start using the Release hub in Team Web Access.
