A group with project scope is essentially a security group for your team project. Project groups can be used to grant read, write, and administrative permissions to meet the security requirements of your organization.

The following example creates a group specific to the project specified by the URI:" vstfs://Classification/TeamProject/088e66e2-714a-476d-8f04-db899712f92a." The group is named "Test Group" and it has the description "This group is for testing."
