As I did after the last major TFS release, the TFS Administration Tool has been updated to depend upon the TFS 2013 Object Model. You no-longer need Team Explorer 2012 installed to use the tool. It can be installed on machines running either the stand-alone object model (http://aka.ms/TFSOM2013), TFS 2013 or Visual Studio 2013.
This release supports SharePoint groups/roles, thanks to a community contribution. There are no other major functional changed between the release and the previous (2.2) release.
Currently, the MSI in the downloaded ZIP file is flagged by Windows SmartScreen as “unsafe” – based upon the experience of the last release, in about a week, it will build enough “reputation” to be considered safe.
The TFS Administration Tool allows Team Foundation Server administrators to manage user permissions on all three platforms utilized by Team Foundation Server:
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.
- Team Foundation Server,
- SharePoint, and
- SQL Server Reporting Services.
