Team Foundation Server Administrator Permissions

Visual Studio 2005

To enable users to act in different Team Foundation roles, they must have the appropriate permissions for Team Foundation Server, Reporting Services, and Windows SharePoint Services. In this topic, you will learn what permissions are required for a Team Foundation Server administrator and where to find information about how to appropriately set those permissions.

Members of the Team Foundation Administrators group have the highest set of permissions of any Team Foundation Server users. Administrators maintain a Team Foundation Server and administer permissions and security for other roles. For most organizations using Team Foundation Server, this same individual will be responsible for creating projects, managing projects, and customizing process guidance. A Team Foundation Server administrator must be a member of the following groups:

  • Team Foundation Administrators.

  • SharePoint Administration group in SharePoint Central Administration.

  • SQL Server Reporting Services Content Manager

  • SQL Server Reporting Services System Administrator.

  • The following topics describe how to set these permissions.
