As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
The following functionality is not supported in WebFOCUS 8.2.01: - Accessibility - support limited to HTML and PDF formats. For additional information, see - Accessibility Compliance on page 9. - App Studio Source Control - Magnify - Open Portal Services
Give me code, or give me retirement. In FOCUS since 1991

My name is Latha Gunashekaran and I am the Senior Product Manager for App Studio. I am excited to work with the customers on resolving some the concerns expressed and suggestions on App Studio. I will also work closely with our Focal Point Moderation team and Customer Support this year. I am aware that there are some concerns regarding the user experience with App Studio. Please continue to open cases so we can assist you further. I will be presenting via Webex on March 2nd on the App Studio Roadmap and Innovations which I encourage everyone to join and ask your questions and address your concerns (http://forums.informationbuilders.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/7971057331/m/3047003586). We have new updates to App Studio coming in our upcoming release that I believe will prove to be valuable in enhancing the product.
Please see my response to the Source Control question: Source control will be available in 8201M release. Source Control is integrated with the WebFOCUS client, thus eliminating the need to install third party providers. In this release: 1) Support for Microsoft's Team Foundation Server is available. App Studio will provide the user interface to interact with the source control system. 2) The functionality is only available in the Domains development area.
Future Release Plan: 1) Support for GIT and Subversion source control systems will be next. 2) Support for other development areas like Web server.
I am working closely with the Product Manager for Source Control to support the UI integration from App Studio. Thank you and look forward to meeting some of you at the upcoming Information Builders Summit 2017 Conference.

We use TFS 2017/2018 on-premise here for our .NET projects, but haven't as of yet dabbled into using it with IBI yet. Once we have our production environment stabilized by moving to 8202M (hopefully), and getting a handful of priority projects accomplished, we plan to start trying it out to see how things go with it in our test environment. I honestly wish we went with GIT, but I'm but a humble developer who's wishes are passed over like breeze upon one's face...
8.2.02M (production), 8.2.02M (test), Windows 10, all outputs.
