Add Users to a Default Group

This procedure describes how to add a member to a group that is predefined by Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. You can add a user or group that is defined in Team Foundation Server or a user or group that is defined in Active Directory or on the local computer. Active Directory users and local users are collectively known as Windows users.

Default groups exist at the server level, the collection level, and the project level. You can add collection-level groups to a group at the project level. However, membership changes to a default collection-level group made at the team project level are reflected across the entire team project collection.

NoteNote

If you add a user to a group in Team Foundation Server, you do not automatically add that user to any group that supports this project in SQL Server Reporting Services or SharePoint Products. You must manually add the user to groups in those products also. For more information, see Add Users to Team Projects.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Project Administrators group to add a user or group to a Team Foundation Server project-level group. Additionally, you must be a member of the Project Collection Administrators group to add a user or group to a collection-level group. For more information about the permissions that are required for adding and removing users to projects, and also to descriptions of collection-level and project-level permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
