Make ‘Associate’ the default checkin action

by Ewald Hofman 19. November 2010 00:17

When you associate a work item to a checkin, the work item will be resolved by default. Some teams have work items that are bigger then one checkin (although this is not recommended) and don’t want to resolve the work items during a checkin.

The only ways to modify the behaviour are:

- Remove the default checkin action from the work item type. Downside is that it is not possible in the UI to choose resolve if you actually want to resolve the work item.

- Change the Resolve action to associate.


In Visual Studio 2010 you can modify this behaviour by changing a registry setting. Change value the following key to “False”.
