Option

Description

/server

Identifies the Team Foundation Server. This option is required if the command is invoked from a directory that is not mapped to a workspace.

You can manage the following team project settings using the configure command:

  • Check-out settings can be used to determine whether multiple users can edit files at the same time. Also, they can be used to configure the get latest on check-out behavior.

  • Check-in policies provide controls that are invoked at check-in time, to make sure that defined criteria are met before a user checks in pending changes.

  • Check-in notes define custom fields into which users provide information during the check-in process. Check-in notes can be either required or optional.

The settings are configured in the Source Control Settings dialog box which appears after you run the configure command. When you complete your changes, click OK to save them to the server.

For more information about these settings, see Walkthrough: Customizing Check-In Policies and Notes.

For links to other Team Foundation commands that provide additional information about the items in your Team Foundation version control server and all the workspaces that map to it, see Informational Commands.

For more information on how to find the tf command-line utility, see Tf Command-Line Utility Commands.
