/gcg Command

Use /gcg to create a global group.

Required Permissions

To use the /gcg command, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators security group. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

TFSSecurity /gcg groupName [groupDescription] /server:servername


Argument Description

/server :servername

Required. Specifies the name of the application tier server.

Run this command on the local application tier computer.

Global groups are groups that are created directly on Team Foundation Server. This is in contrast to team project groups, which are associated with a specific project. Global groups can be assigned permissions to perform tasks on the Team Foundation Server itself, such as creating new projects or administrating users.

The following example creates a global group called "cwintst" with the description "Coho Winery Testers."

>TFSSecurity /gcg cwintst “Coho Winery Testers” /server:MyServer
