Rule Knowledgebase

Summary

This rule generates warning alerts for any issues that are not specific to "TFS Collection" instances.

Causes

This rule watches the Windows event log for entries created by the "TFS Work Items Creation Rule" workflow. It subscribes to the following events:

  • 1003 Task timeout: "Task execution exceeded timeout limit in N seconds", where N stands for the configured timeout.

  • 1008 The application name was not found in the target alert (Not APM alert): "Sources of some alerts that are Assigned to Engineering are empty. Alert ids: {List}"

Resolutions
  • Task timeout means that the TFS work item exceeds the configured timeout time (default is 5 minutes). If you receive this alert frequently, you might change the "Task Timeout Seconds" override of TFS Creation Workflow Event Collection Rule.

  • The application name was not found in the target alert (Not APM alert). This alert occurs when someone tries to change resolution state for non-APM alerts. This cannot be done because non-APM alerts have no associated application name that links alerts to TFS projects.

This rule does not contain any external references.
