            G'day everyone,

            This has been a difficult choice for us but we have decided to close this issue. It has been opened for several years already and realistically we are not going to implement support for Team Foundation Server.

            Our team wants to focus on improving FishEye with the SCMs that are already supported. Adding another one to the list would slow down development significantly and every customer would be impacted in a negative way.

            Ideally we would like to be able to support every team out there and this was a tough decision to make – the impressive number of votes on this issue shows how much FishEye can help developers.

            You can reach out to me at spittet@atlassian.com if you have any question, I'll be happy to respond.

            Regards,

            Sten Pittet

            I'd just like to say thanks for making a decision and preventing this issue hanging around too much longer, and for taking the trouble to explain the situation and communicate what may not be a popular decision with some of your customers / user base.

            We use TFS and were hoping for integration to be implemented but I can entirely understand why you have taken this decision, and will now be able to make our own decisions about how we move forward with SCM for the future.

            Kind regards

            Chris

            I must say - I'm disappointed in the decision.

            TFS is a major enterprise SCM product - and I honestly feel that you guys are really tripping yourselves up when it comes to big-enterprise uptake of your products.

            In the last 10 years, I can honestly say that there was only a single shop that DIDN'T involve TFS in some way, shape, or form - be that as their primary SCM, or as a forced decision due to client requirements.

            One particular company I worked at, with 6000+ employees, still uses TFS as their primary SCM. I was involved in an attempt to switch the entire organisation over to using Jira, but it was things like this that caused the greatest resistance - why use Jira, over the integrated tools that come with TFS? Because Jira has better features? Hardly an argument when those features aren't available unless they change their ENTIRE business at once.

            I have yet to work anywhere where TFS isn't the primary SCM.

            I share Peter's disappointment - The last two organizations I've worked for have both made heavy use of Confluence and JIRA, but have had to look elsewhere for their Code Review software due to lack of TFS support. It's a shame really, none of the other code review software out there plays nicely with JIRA but we can't use this software because it cannot be integrated with our primary SCM.
