How to: Modify Permissions for a Default Group

Some default groups are defined at the server level, whereas others are defined at the team project level. There are different permissions at the server level than at the team project level. For a full list of server permissions and project permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions. Use this list to decide whether you must allow or deny a permission, and see the following procedures.

NoteNote

Some default groups are derived from other group memberships, and cannot have their permissions changed directly. For more information, see Default Groups.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Project Administrators group or have the Edit Project-Level Information permission set to Allow to modify a Team Foundation Server project-level group. Additionally, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators group or have the Edit Server-Level Information permission set to Allow to modify a Team Foundation Server server-level group. For more information about the permissions that are required for adding and removing users to projects, in addition to descriptions of server-level and project-level permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To change permissions for a default server-level group

  1. In Team Explorer, select the Team Foundation Server for which you want to display group permission information.

  2. From the Team menu, point to Team Foundation Server Settings, and then click Security.

  3. In the Global Security dialog box, in Users and Groups, select the default group for which you want to display permissions.

  4. Review the list of selected permissions at the bottom of the dialog box. If an item is shaded and cannot be selected, that permission has been set by default and cannot be changed.

  5. For the appropriate permissions at the bottom of the dialog box, select or clear Allow or Deny as appropriate. Click Close when finished.
