/gcg Command

Use /gcg to create a server-level group.

Required Permissions

To use the /gcg command, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators security group. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

NoteNote:

Even if you are logged on with administrative credentials, you must open an elevated Command Prompt to perform this function on a server that is running Windows Server 2008. To open an elevated Command Prompt, click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and click Run as Administrator. For more information, see the Microsoft Web site.

TFSSecurity /gcg groupName [groupDescription] /server:servername

Argument

Description

groupName

Specifies the global group name.

groupDescription

Optional. Group description.

/server:servername

Required. Specifies the name of the application-tier server.

Run this command on the local application-tier computer.

Global groups are groups that are created directly on Team Foundation Server. This is in contrast to team project groups, which are associated with a specific project. Global groups can be assigned permissions to perform tasks on the Team Foundation Server itself, such as creating new projects or administrating users.

The following example creates a global group called "cwintst" with the description "Coho Winery Testers."

>TFSSecurity /gcg cwintst "Coho Winery Testers" /server:MyServer
