View Default Groups

You can view group information and membership for any group in a team project collection or a team project. Review the group information and membership for the default groups in your collection regularly, to help ensure the security of your deployment. Make sure that only users who require the permissions granted by membership in those groups belong to those groups.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Project Collection Valid Users group or your View Project-Level Information and View Collection-Level Information permissions must be set to Allow. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
