Aha! integration with should create a hyperlink record in TFS to link back to the Aha! item

Aha! integration with TFS should create a hyperlink in the TFS item when the Send to Team Foundation Server action is selected and a new TFS item is created.  Additionally, an action that sends a link record to TFS would be helpful if the link is lost in TFS or if the TFS item was created prior to these features being available

    We have launched enhanced VSTS and TFS integrations. These integrations will allow you to send the Aha! link to VSTS and TFS along with several other new capabilities including the ability to:

    • Set record mappings for Aha! initiatives, releases, master features, features, and requirements and link them to nearly any corresponding record type
    • Map default or custom fields in Aha! to any “like” field and specify which direction the updates should flow (e.g. from Aha! or from VSTS/TFS)
    • Automatically send outgoing changes from Aha! or choose to review and approve them
    • Import records directly from VSTS and TFS to make getting started in Aha! easy
    Check out the blog post for more details.

    This would be a most welcomed change.

    Agree, it's confusing to not have a link.

    Even if not a hyperlink, would like as ready only.

    Aha! is not letting me vote on this, so I'm chiming in with this comment.

    This feature does not seem to be actually completed like it states as 'Shipped'.  I believe this idea is asking to have a hyperlink available in TFS which would allow you to open up, or at least identify, which Aha! object it is linked to.  For example...i do have a hyperlink within Aha! that allows me to open up the TFS object instantly within the web browser but I do not have the ability to open up the Aha object directly from TFS...or to know if/and what it is linked to in Aha!.

    Hi Jeremy, this is possible with our enhanced TFS integration. Within the mapping step, add a field mapping and choose URL on the Aha! side. You can then map this field to a custom field in TFS. Thanks!
