Similar to the "Move" feature in Team Services, we need the ability to migrate work items from one project to another (same collection) keeping history, links, attachments. This includes Test suites, plans, cases, and runs. There are a lot of 3rd party tools, but have not been able to successfully migrate completely with any of them. This should be built into TFS.

Similar to the following User Voice post except for on-prem:

    We just upgraded to TFS 2018 On-Prem and were really hoping this feature existing. Sad to see this doesn't exist yet after existing in the SaaS solution for quite a while. :(

    I'm also interested being able to move WI's from project to project with TFS on-prem. We are not ready to move to VSTS, and this need arises a couple times per year for us. Any help is appreciated.

    Hello VSTS Team,

    can you say when this feature will go live for TFS ON-Premise?
    There are any dates on roadmap?

    Best regards,
    Robert
