Team Services | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

You can track change requests for CMMI work items by using these six fields: Justification, Impact on Architecture, Impact on User Experience, Impact on Test, Impact on Development, and Impact on Technical Publications. A description and a reference name for each of the change request fields are provided in the following table. When you open a work item form for a change request, the Justification field appears on the Justification tab, and all other fields appear on the Analysis tab.

The Change Request work item type is provided only with the CMMI process.

None of these fields are reportable or indexed. They all have a data type of HTML.
