How to connect ONLINE TFS in UiPath

Using UiPath Studio 2018.4.1 Community Edition and unable to connect ONLINE TFS.

ERROR Message:
TF31002: Unable to connect to this Team Foundation Server… Possible reasons for failure include:
The name, port number or protocol is incorrect
The Team Foundation Server is offline
The password has expired or is incorrect.

Refer to the following link and not sure how I can authenticate Microsoft account in UI Path Studio and connect to online tfs.

If the TFS server is online (e.g. https://.visualstudio.com) UiPath Studio requests authentication with a Microsoft account.

Thanks and much appreciated!

Hi @samarm,
Welcome to the Community!
Regarding description of TFS:

“A user signs in using a Microsoft account to set up an environment, creating projects and adding team members.”

As I understand where you are creating TFS instance you are declaring the account which has an access there. This is called Microsoft account.

Thanks Pablito for your reply.

Could you please share me how I can add my UI Project on online TFS.

Have you checked this?

Yes I checked and tried to connect using Manage TFS Online option but the problem is UiPath Studio NOT requesting me to authenticate Microsoft account.

Please check if you are providing correct address for the server.

“If the TFS server is online UiPath Studio requests authentication with a Microsoft account.”

Yes It is correct because with the using Microsoft Visual Studio I am able to connect that TFS. Its annoying to stuck this issue and can’t find proper detail.

It will really appreciated if you could give me example to connect online TFS with UiPath.

Thanks

The connection to TFS is not complicated.
Example:

You just need to provide proper address and port (local or network, based on what server do you have). And Studio should automatically ask you for credentials based on what I wrote in previous post.

Thank you Pablito for your help.

Finally, I got the solution and it works fine. I would like share the steps that might help other readers and save their time. I have closed network in my organization and tried to connect through proxy server setting. UI Path have given how to set proxy server on their site but it was not fully working for me.

I have performed the following steps to fixed this issue:

  1. Navigate to the installation folder, %ProgramFiles(x86)%\UiPath\Studio
  2. Open UiPath.Service.Host.exe.config file in Notepad++ and Navigate to the Proxy configuration section and uncomment the tags under it, by removing the comment tags (<!––, ––>).
  3. Set usesystemdefault to false and proxy server information according to my org server etc
    <proxy usesystemdefault=”false” value=“http://10...:8081”
  4. Save the file and close it.
  5. Important Step: Copy the proxy setting information from “UiPath.Service.Host.exe.config” file and paste it in “UI Path Studio.exe.config” file. etc tags under <system.net>. UI Path Studio.exe.config exist on same directory.
  6. Restart the UI Path studio and finally able to connect to TFS

Cheers!
