Example folder structure on TFS server with branches

For our example we would like to have all branches from the Branches folder except for the branch HackFix, the release branches from the Release folder and the Main branch included. Furthermore, only code located in the src directory should be included in the analysis. The connector configuration parameter values are listed here:

Config Parameter Values for the TFS Example

Path suffix$TFS Example/Code
