How to: Set Project Lead Permissions for Windows SharePoint Services

Visual Studio 2005

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

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be either a member of the Windows SharePoint Server Site Administrators group, a member of the SharePoint Administration group, or a member of the Administrators group on the Team Foundation application-tier server. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add a member to the Windows SharePoint Services Administrator group for the project site

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

  2. Right-click the team project node and then click Show Project Portal.

  3. Click Site Settings, and then click Manage Users.

  4. Click Add Users.

  5. In Step 1: Choose Users; add the Windows logon name for the person to whom you want to grant site-wide administration permissions.

  6. In Step 2: Choose Site Groups, select Administrator, and then click Next.

  7. In Step 3: Confirm Users, add the e-mail address of the user.

  8. In Step 4: Send E-Mail, select whether to automatically send the user an e-mail, and then click Finish.

After you complete this procedure, you must also grant project lead permissions on Reporting Services and Team Foundation Server in order to add a person in the Team Project Lead role.
