In this post we will discuss about the roles and permission in Team foundation server 2015. These concepts comes handy while you try to manage users within your project, but giving them permission and access to what each and every individual in team must see in their TFS.

TFS Roles and permissions

For users to have access to your team project in Team Foundation Server (TFS), you need to grant them access. TFS has three inter-connected functional areas for access management
  • Access level management
  • Membership management
  • Permission management

Access level management

Controls access only to features provided through TWA, the TFS web application. Based on their user license, administrators grant access to Basic, Advanced, or Stakeholder (previously labeled Standard, Full, and Limited) set of features

Membership management

  • Supports adding individual Windows user accounts and groups to default TFS groups. Also, you can create TFS groups.
  • Each default TFS group is associated with a set of default permissions. All users added to any TFS group are added to the Valid Users group.
  • A valid user is someone who can connect to the team project.

Permission management

  • Controls access to specific functional tasks at different levels of the system.
  • Object-level permissions set permissions on a file, folder, build definition, or a shared query. Permission settings correspond to AllowDenyInherited allowInherited deny, and Not set.
