Disable Bugs as Product Backlogs

The default behaviour for Scrum for Team System version 2 is to handle bugs as items on the Product Backlog, if you like us rather wish to import Bugs as tasks you should change the tfsViewBugsAsProductBacklogs setting in Scrum Dashboard (see above).

Also, for "Work remaining" on Product Backlogs to be calculated correctly you must disable the calculation for type Bug:
  1. Open c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ScrumForTeamSystem\web.config
  2. Find the following line and delete the bold section below:
<!-- The target work item types to update with the calculated value-->
<setting name="TargetWorkItemTypeNames" serializeAs="Xml">
<ArrayOfString xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">
<string>Product Backlog Item</string>
