item types, terminology, and state transitions.

Team Foundation Server Administration Tool

Managing user permissions is always a problem for Team Foundation Server administrators. I have been always looking for a tool that allows Team Foundation Server administrators to manage user permissions in a single console. Recently, I have been playing around with Team Foundation Server Administration Tool ( This is a great tool. The Team Foundation Server Administration Tool allows Team Foundation Server administrators to manage user permissions on all three platforms utilized by Team Foundation Server: Team Foundation Server, SharePoint, and SQL Server Reporting Services. The tool also allows administrators to easily copy user permissions among team projects and to easily identify any missing permissions on any of the three platforms.

The following are the software requirements for running the tool:
    * Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1
    * Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2008 Service Pack 1
    * Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Service Pack 1 Forward Compatibility Update for Team Foundation Server 2010
    * Team Foundation Server Administrator permissions on the Team Foundation Server you wish to manage with the tool

Have fun!!
