SSIS and Team Foundation Server

    一般討論

  • First let me say, I play to try and write up something more formal with some details of my recent frustrations of moving my SSIS packages into Team Foundation Server, I'm curious though if I'm the only one doing this.

    Its seems that TFS is severely lacking some functionality to make it truly useful for SSIS. First and foremost the lack of it's ability to have an offline working mode and its inability to merge DTSX files (coupled with the fact there is no "Check-out but keep local copy" ability)

    Has any one else been using TFS and SSIS, are you finding it to be adequate? I'm hoping to find out where the major issues are so we can bring it to the attention of MS for some updates. I fear this combination might not be extensively used and as a result support will be overlooked by MS in upcoming service packs.

    I have been using it and I find it more than adequate.

     

    I haven't had the requirement to work offline from my TFS server so can't comment there.

    Merging .dtsx files - what should there be in TFS that is specififc to .dtsx files? Should it be the responsibility of the TFS team to build it, or the SSIS team?

     

    I would be surprised if the issues you mention are specific to using SSIS with TFS. I would think it more likely they are true of TFS in general - certainly your comment about "Check-out but keep local copy" ability would, I think, be better placed on the TFS forum rather than a SSIS forum would it not?

     

    One problem I HAVE had is that checking in (not just to TFS but Sourcesafe also) a .dtsx file sometimes causes it to lose details of one of the data-flows. Unfortunately I can't repro on demand although there is a Conenct posting open about it.
