Git Question

Work Items, Pull Requests menu not visible in Visual Studio

I'm using VSTS and Visual Studio enterprise on two different machines (both VS2015U3 on Win10). The project has a git-repository. On one machine I do have all expected menu's (https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/connect/work-team-explorer ) on the other some (pull requests, work items) are missing. On both machines editing code and commiting/synching works fine.

Any suggestions ?

Answer

The reason is that you just connect to the local git repository and it likes this: enter image description here

You configured Remotes (Home=>Settings=>Repository Settings=>Remotes), so you can commit and sync.

Refer to these steps to connect to the remote repository.

  1. Go to Team Explorer
  2. Click Manage connections=>Connect to Team project enter image description here
  3. After that Open Solution in Solutions section (if it is empty, you need to clone this repository) enter image description here
