Msdn Command

VSTS | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | VS 2017 | VS 2015 | VS 2013

Displays a help topic from the MSDN library that contains detailed information about a Team Foundation version control command.

tf msdn commandname


Argument Description
commandname Specifies a Team Foundation command for which to display a help topic.


When you need a command and are not sure which one to use, type tf msdn for a list of command reference topics and links to additional resources. If you use the msdn command without specifying a commandname parameter, you will see a topic that lists all commands together with usage requirements and a description.

When you specify the commandname parameter, the help topic opens for that specific command. If the system cannot find a match for the commandname, it searches for aliases and short names. If it does not find a matching command, alias, or short name, you will get an error message.

For more information about how to find the tf command-line utility, see Tf Command-Line Utility Commands.
