Organize and Set Permissions on Work Item Queries (Team Explorer Everywhere)

Visual Studio 2010

You can organize and share your queries and team queries by using folders and subfolders. You cannot set permissions by using the Team Foundation Server plug-in for Eclipse. You must instead use another Team Foundation client, such as Team Web Access or Team Explorer in Visual Studio. You can set permissions on queries and folders that are created under Team Queries to enable or restrict access. You can set permissions for individual users or groups in Windows or Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. For more information, see Organize and Set Permissions on Work Item Queries on the Microsoft Web site.

In the Team Foundation Server plug-in for Eclipse, you cannot copy or paste queries, folders, or subfolders. You can perform these operations in other clients for Team Foundation Server. You can open a query and can save that query under a new name or location. For more information, see Creating, Saving, and Copying Work Item Queries.

Your Full Control permission must be set before you can add, delete, and move queries and folders under My Queries. By default, when you create a query or a folder, you are assigned as its owner and your Full Control permission is set.

You set query permissions through the Security dialog box for each query or query folder. To manage queries and folders under Team Queries, you must have the permissions in the following table to perform the associated tasks:
