Edit a Workspace

A workspace includes a client-side working folder on the local disk that is mapped to a version-controlled folder on the Team Foundation version control server. You can modify the mappings and change the client-side working folder. You can modify a workspace mapping in Team Foundation, or from the command line by using the Workspace Command. The following procedure demonstrates how to modify a Team Foundation workspace from your computer.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must either own the workspace or have the Administer workspaces permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To modify a workspace

  1. From the File menu, click Source Control, and then click Workspaces.

  2. In the Manage Workspaces dialog box, under the Name column, highlight the workspace that you want to modify, and then click Edit.

  3. In the Edit Workspace dialog box:

    1. Modify the name in the Name box.


      The computer name value is nonmutable. If a computer name changes, run tf workspaces /updatecomputername from the tf command-line utility. Otherwise, workspaces cannot move from one computer to another. For more information, see Workspaces Command.

    2. Enter a comment that describes the modifications that are made to the workspace in the Comment box.

    3. Modify the working folders.

    4. Click OK to save the workspace changes.


    Once the workspace is established, you must now populate your workspace with files from the server. For more information, see Get Command.

  4. In the Manage Workspaces dialog box, click Close.
