How to: Add Users to a Team Project Group

Adding users to already-existing groups for your team project is a simple way to manage users and the permissions they require. Adding users to a security group is an efficient way to grant a specific set of permissions to a group of users on your team project.

Adding users to a team project group will give users the permissions of that group only at the level of that particular project. To make changes globally to a default group, see How to: Add Users to a Default Group.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Project Administrators group. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add users to a group

  1. In Team Explorer, select the team project that the group is in.

  2. On the Team menu, point to Team Project Settings, and then click Group Membership.

  3. In the Project Groups dialog box, select the team project group you want to add users to, and then click Properties.

  4. In the Team Foundation Server Group Properties dialog box, on the Members tab, under Add Member, select Windows User or Group.

  5. Click Add.

    In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, under Enter the object names to select, type the user you want to add in the appropriate format for the network.

    To add more than one user at a time, separate the entries with a semicolon (;).

  6. Click OK, and then click Close.
