New Code Review Details Report fails to output linked Work Items

New Code Review Details Report fails to output linked Work Items

The new Code Review Details are nice, but they still don't allow to create a report which links code changes and reviews to requirements (work items). Also, when I use the command line tool, the extracted information doesn't have the linked work item either.

Please fix to where it displays this information both in the report, and is reported in the command line tool.

This probably wouldn't be as big of an issue if the "Code Coverage" Report would handle Shelvesets (Pre-commit reviews)

Unfortunately, due to the technical restrictions, it is impossible to show TFS work items in reports at the moment.

However, we will consider the possibility of implementing such feature in future releases.

All you really need to show is the number, not the WI's content. I know it is tracked in the DB because if I pull up a archived review, the work item link is still there.

Also, if I could pull out the number with the command line, then I could create Peer Review Audit reports for QA for each work item.

Review Assistant dynamically queries TFS work items at the client side, so it isn't stored in the database.

The command line API directly works with the Review Assistant server, that's why it doesn't return information about TFS work items.

The Code Review Details report is generated at the server side, so it doesn't have TFS work items for the same reason too.

I'm sorry, but this doesn't make sense. I can go into the Review Archive and look up a review from months ago (a review that I did not perform), and it still shows the work item attached. So it was saved SOMEWHERE. And, that somewhere had to have been on the database server.

Regardless, we NEED the ability to link back to the review. Otherwise, it didn't happen.

Review Assistant queries TFS work items from TFS server at the client side. But Review Assistant server doesn't have such code, so it has no ability to query TFS work items yet. We have plans to do such functionality in the future.
