TFS 2010 Dashboards with SharePoint 2010 (MOSS)

By default, TFS 2010 installs with SharePoint Services 3.0.  This gives you basic dashboards and reporting.  In order to take full advantage of what TFS 2010 provides, you should integrate it with SharePoint 2010 (aka MOSS).  This is what you get when you add that integration:

SharePoint 2010 introduces 5 new dashboards that were not available in previous versions of SharePoint: Burndown, Quality, Bugs, Test, and Build:

Previous versions of SharePoint only had “My Dashboard” and “Project Dashboard”:

    Hi Esteban, i am working on integrating my company’s TFS 2010 with a SharePoint 2010 portal. I have been looking that several blogs shows that when the configuration is done they get several dashboards. In my case the only dashboard that was created was “My Dashboard”. Wath do I need to get other dashboards like the ones mentioned in your article.

    I am working on a sharepoint 2010 farm single server test enviroment with my production TFS 2010. My configuration goes as follows:
    – TFS 2010 Standard
    – SharePoint 2010 Enterprise
    – Sql 2008 r2 Enterprise with Report Server in Integrated Mode.
    – SP has been integrated with reporting services.

    Jose,
    Do you see any errors in the Team Project creation log? I seem to remember running into this before, and I think it had to do with permissions during the creation of the Team Project, but I may be mistaken. Can you take a look at your log file and let me know?

    Hi Esteban, Thanks for this nice explanation, But i do have some other requirement.
    Lest say if we have WorkItemLinkFilters LinkType=”System.LinkTypes.Hierarchy” then WorkItemTypeFilters should be “Task” and if we have WorkItemLinkFilters LinkType=”System.LinkTypes.Hierarchy” then WorkItemTypeFilters should be “child” only. Is it possible to achieve ?
