Microsoft: The future of our TFS/SharePoint Integration

Team Foundation Server (TFS) has provided SharePoint integration since its inception in 2005.  That integration included SharePoint site templates and automatic site provisioning as well as support for browsing document libraries from inside Visual Studio Team Explorer.

In the ensuing years, a lot has changed – both in SharePoint and in TFS.  The extensibility models have evolved, TFS has added dashboards, SharePoint has added modern team sites (to replace their classic sites), and more.  It’s time for us to take a step back and rethink what integration between TFS and Office’s premier collaboration tools looks like.

With the next major release of TFS, we will no longer offer the TFS Extension for SharePoint.  Additionally, we have no plans to go back to TFS 2017 and add support for installing the TFS Extension for SharePoint on SharePoint 2016.  However, to enable customers who want to upgrade their SharePoint servers to 2016 or later, we will provide a way to remove the older TFS Extension and unblock SharePoint upgrades.  Older versions of TFS (TFS 2017 and before) will continue to work with their supported versions of SharePoint but, going forward, we will be rethinking our integration.

We still believe Integration between TFS and SharePoint (and other Office applications, like Microsoft Teams) is important, however, we need to do it in a way that is in line with modern trends and supports both on-prem and cloud-based solutions.
