Installation and setup are very easy. Axosoft Integration and functionality work well. It could use some polish just to make it look a bit prettier but prettiness doesn't seem to be Axosoft's main concern in their default web portal either..
When viewing either a defect or feature there is one thing that bugs me. If there is a scroll-bar visible (most of the time) scrolling doesn't work when the mouse is over a text field. So for example: I scroll down > This brings the mouse right over the Description field > I try to scroll up and nothing happens. Having lots of dead-zones for scrolling is annoying because it makes me think about where the mouse is when scrolling.
Edit: I'm using Visual Studio 2013. Don't know why the name of the extension is still 2010.
At least is MUCH BETTER to be able to work from within VS. But still a buggy, interface ugly and not VS2013-like, pop-up windows too annoying. Lacks basic feats. Like searching some specific ID! And crashes all damn VS.
Unable to properly evaluate since the plugin does not support the use of Windows Integrated Credentials (i.e. using domain credentials for connection), which is what we use for connecting to OnTime through our web browser. This is obviously a significant oversight.
Here's hoping that in the future this feature will be supported.
Extension works fine, I have finally the possibility to integrate OnTime into VS. But it is unstable, and is able to crash the whole Visual Studio. This happens when switching to the tab. (tested with v126.96.36.19900)
The extension connects well to my OnTimeNow ... I got Projects list, Releases... my User stories list ... but in this list, only the "selection" and "item type icon" columns are displayed !!! no 'item id", "item name", "priority" or other column ! Furthermore, the contextual menu on grid columns headers, called "Show other columns" does not work : no popup window to choose which columns to display...
Just downloaded and installed it to, running Windows 7, and VS2010 Professional. I am unable to get it to connect - I did notice that there are options for "HTTP" and "HTTPS", is this designed to only connect to your web version? In the office we just use the client software and point it to our database - but having entered these details and my Windows credentials it still fails to connect - pity, it looked promising...
This version of the VS2010 extension will work with both OnTime V12 OnDemand and OnPremise. If you need help getting the extension to run, feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we'd love to give you hand.
Logged into my account through the web just fine; tried to log in using _exactly_ the same settings ([https://]majuda.ontimenow.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, <password>) through this VS extension and received several "Could not connect" message boxes, followed by an email "Your OnTime user account has been locked out due to too many attempts".
Installed, tested connection, connection passed, clicked "Ok" then VS2010 crashed. Tried to reopen VS2010 and was prompted by the VS2010 JIT debugger if I want to debug the broken VS2010 process. Now I cannot get VS2010 to launch without the JIT debugger popping up.
Might be a good plugin if it didn't crash your IDE, but who knows?
Would love to see some ALM-like capabilities added to this tool.
Specifically and one that I could use for my team immediately would be the ability to tag a code commit (pick your favorite SCC tool) with an OT item number and description
The version details show it supports Visual Studio 2012. Is this correct ? If so how do you connect to database as the extension complains that the version of Ontime is incompatible with the plugin. We are using a remotely hosted account.
Same problem here, running Visual studio premium 2012, and ontime onpremise 188.8.131.5295.
Get the "The version of OnTime you´re using is incompatible with this plugin" . I can log on through the web without any problem with the same credentials.
I, as some others have, get the issue with the plugin that states the "All Items" tab must be selected. I get no details on the plug-ins view. When I go into OnTime under the setting for the Main View as suggested there only lists options for specific tabs and not an "All Items" option. Any suggestions???
I had the same question, and this is the response I got from Axosoft Support:
The OnTime Visual Studio plugin connects to your database using the OnTime Web site so you would need to enter in the URL that you use to access your OnTime database. The Visual Studio plugin does not currently support Windows Integrated authentication so for any users that would be using the plugin, you would need to update their login info under Tools/Manage/Users to use OnTime Built-In Authentication and enable anonymous access for your OnTime website in IIS.
Please let us know if you need anything else or if you have any further questions.
