tfs-proxy allows you to access information of your on-premise Team Foundation Server via simple web requests.


Currently it was created as side-project for node-build-monitor. Microsoft had released a REST API for its Visual Studio Online Services. But for the on-premise Team Foundation Server there is no easy way to query the build information.

How does it work?

tfs-proxy is a standalone Java console application running the Spark web framework. On a request
the Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 SDK for Java is used to access the information of the Team Foundation Server.

How to use it?

  1. Run tfs-proxy via Docker (see Run with Docker below) or build it with maven (see Dockerfile for the needed build commands)
  2. Make a web request to http://localhost:4567/builds with the following headers:
    • url, eg. http://tfs-server:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection
    • username: eg. domain\buildadmin
    • password: eg. buildadmin_secret
  3. Check the JSON response for the queried build details

For a quick check if tfs-proxy is running correctly you can use curl

curl --header "url: http://tfs-server:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection" --header "username: domain\buildadmin" --header "password: buildadmin_secret" http://localhost:4567/builds

Run with Docker

You could build the tfs-proxy docker image by your-self, if you want to.

docker build -t tfs-proxy .
docker run -d -p 4567:4567 tfs-proxy

You can also use the pre-built docker image marcells/tfs-proxy in the Docker Hub.

docker run -d -p 4567:4567 marcells/tfs-proxy
