Grant Access to the Databases of the Data Warehouse for Visual Studio ALM

Before team members can create reports for Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), you must grant them read access to the databases that make up the data warehouse. You can grant access to the analysis services database, the relational database, or both, depending on what types of reports will be created.

Required Permissions

To grant access to the analysis services database, you must have the Administer permission in that database. To grant access to the relational database, you must be a member of the securityadmin or sysadmin server role in SQL Server Database Engine.

To grant a user or group read access to the analysis services database

  1. On the Start menu, point to All Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2008, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.

    SQL Server Management Studio starts, and the Connect to Server dialog box appears.

  2. In the Server type list, click Analysis Services.

  3. In the Server name box, type the name of the analysis services server for Team Foundation Server, and then click Connect.

    NoteNote

    The analysis services server for Team Foundation Server is typically the same as the data-tier server.

    The Connect to Server dialog box closes.

  4. In Object Explorer, expand the server's Databases folder, then expand the Tfs_Analysis database, and then expand the Roles folder.

  5. Right-click the TfsWarehouseDataReader role, and then click Properties.

    The Edit Role dialog box appears.

  6. Under Select a page, click Membership, and then click Add.

    The Select Users or Groups dialog box appears.

  7. Add the user or group, click OK, and then click OK.
