Templex-Sharing Team System Process Templates

We always asked for a library of process templates available and also easy way to share ones we created.

Templex is a new CodePlex project has just been created for this purpose. 

From the project’s page:

This CodePlex projects serves as a repository for open source Team Foundation Server (TFS) process templates, work item type definitions and report definitions. TFS uses process templates to configure new team projects. Each process template includes the following:

  • TFS Security groups and permissions
  • Initial set of Areas and Iterations
  • Work item type definitions
  • Initial set of work items
  • Work item querys
  • MS Project Mappings
  • Version control permissions and settings for check-out and check-in
  • Project portal document library settings, including an initial set of documents
  • SQL Reporting Services report definitions

Once a team project is created, the following configuration items can be imported, exported and modified:
  • Work item type definitions
  • Work item queries
  • Report definitions
