Team Foundation Server Project Lead Permissions

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

A Team Foundation Server project lead is generally in charge of a team project and can maintain a team project work item database and team project portal and administer permissions and security for the team project. Only members of the Team Foundation Administrators group can create a new team project. Most of the time, the Team Foundation administrator must add a user or group to the project to act as the team project lead. A team project lead must be a member of the following groups:

  • Team Foundation Server Project Administrators.

  • Windows SharePoint Services Site Administrators.

  • SQL Server Reporting Services Content Manager.
