Step 3: Create Your Collection(s)

Types of Collections

Your collections define which artifacts are eligible to flow as part of your integration. 

You can create five types of collections:



Work Item Collection (Repository)




Container Collection


Container Collection (Repository)



Work Item Collection (Database)


Gateway Collection


Outbound Only Collection

Outbound Only Collection

Work Item Collections (Repository) are available in all Editions.


Container Collections (Repository) are available in all Editions.


Work Item Collections (Database) are only available in Editions that contain the Enterprise Data Stream add-on.  See Tasktop Editions table to determine if your edition contains this functionality.

Gateway Collections are only available in Editions that contain the Gateway add-on.  See Tasktop Editions table to determine if your edition contains this functionality. Outbound Only Collections are only available in editions that have access to the Git repository.  

A work item collection (repository) contains work items, such as defects or requirements, from repositories, such as Jira or ServiceNow.


A container collection contains containers, such as folders or modules, from repositories such as DOORS Next Generation or Jama.

A work item (database) collection connects to a database, such as MySQL or Oracle.

A gateway collection contains artifacts sent via an in-bound webhook, from an external tool.

An outbound only collection contains artifacts like code commits or changesets, which you may want to flow out of your repository, but which would not receive updates into your repository.
