Time for a stampede! If you can’t stand having to manage users in three different places, run – don’t walk, to the Product Feedback Center:
There should be a way where adding a user to TFS at the same time adds the user to SharePoint and SQL Reporting.
We have a team that has the bandwidth for providing such a tool, but they’re asking for customer feedback on that item to justify the work.
One shortcoming of TFS is that when you add a new user to the system, the user is only created in the Team Foundation Server…not in the other two areas where the account needs to be created (in SQL Server and in Sharepoint). This creates extra work for the administrator of the TFS…they need to go into Sharepoint and SQL and add the user, with the correct permissions, manually. The Aftermarket Solutions team here has decided that we could build a tool that overcomes this obstacle…now we need to figure out whether or not customers really want this tool.
