How to: Set Project Lead Permissions for Team Foundation Server

Visual Studio 2005

To add a person to the Project Manager role for a team project, you must set permissions in Team Foundation Server groups, Windows SharePoint Services groups, and Reporting Services groups. In this topic, you learn how to set permissions in Team Foundation Server for a project-level content manager for a team project.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators group or have the Edit Server-Level Information permission set to Allow. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add a member to the Project Administrators group

  1. In Visual Studio, open Team Explorer, and then connect to Team Foundation Server.

  2. Right-click the team project node, point to Team Project Settings, and then click Group membership.

  3. Select [Project_Name]\Project Administrators, where Project_Name represents the name of the project you want to add an administrator to, and then click Properties.

  4. In Add member, select Windows User or Group, and then click Add.

  5. Add the Windows logon name for the person or group you want to grant permissions to, and then click OK.

Besides completing this procedure, you must also grant project lead permissions on Reporting Services and Windows SharePoint Services in order to add a person in the Team Project Lead role. For more information about these procedures, see How to: Set Project Lead Permissions for Reporting Services and How to: Set Project Lead Permissions for Windows SharePoint Services.
