Submitting defects to Microsoft Team Foundation Server

You can submit bundles with one or more findings to Team Foundation Server - or you can submit individual findings. The first time you submit a finding from AppScan® Source for Analysis to Team Foundation Server, you must log in with your username and password. If you want to configure the preset field values that will be used during submission, you can do so in the Team Foundation Server preferences.

About this task

When you submit a bundle to Team Foundation Server, the work item number is associated with the specific findings in the bundle, rather than the bundle itself. This ensures that you can manipulate the bundle further while preserving the association of specific findings to work item numbers.
Note: When configuring the login to Team Foundation Server 2010, the Server URL must contain the Team Project Collection you want to connect to. For example, http://myserver:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection.


  1. Select the finding or findings in the table, or open the bundle. (If you open the bundle, select the bundle findings to submit.)
  2. Right-click the selection and choose Submit Defect > Dispatch to Team Foundation Server from the menu.
  3. The submission dialog box will then guide you through the process, including login, if necessary, and filling in required fields.


A bundle will be automatically added to the submitted work item that can then be opened at a later time by a user of AppScan® Source for Analysis or AppScan® Source for Development.
