Importing work item type fails


Using the Work Item Configuration section to edit the template for "User Story" to constrain the allowed values for a field. I received the following error, which I encountered previously when using the wrong version of the witadmin tool. My installed instance is TFS 2015 Update 1, so perhaps that version is just not supported yet. Please note that I am able to successfully upload the template when using the command line witadmin myself.

Validating Work Item Type Definition: User Story for Team Project "YourProject"
TF248020: You cannot specify the 'Reportable' attribute for field 'System.BoardColumnDone'. You can only define the reportable attribute for Integer, Double, String, or DateTime fields. Remove this attribute for the field, or change the field type and try again.

Resolved with changeset 78343: Upgraded to latest version of NuGet packages

I've released a new version which includes the latest available version of the TFS SDK. Hopefully that's sufficiently up-to-date that it now correctly recognizes the attribute.
