Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice


You are the team foundation administrator of your company. You want to create a new work item type.


Which group membership will allow you to create a work item type? (Choose two. Each correct option provides a single solution.)



  1. Project Reader
  2. Project Contributor
  3. Project Administrator
  4. Project Build Services
  5. Team Foundation Administrators
  6. Team Foundation Licensed Users

Answer:
C. Project Administrator
E. Team Foundation Administrators


Tutorial:
Either the Project Administrator or the Team Foundation Administrators group membership will allow you to create a new work item type. The Project Administrator is a project-level group that allows its users to manage team projects. The Team Foundation Administrators is a server-level group that provides its users the permissions to perform all administrative operations on the Team Foundation Server. If you have either of these two group memberships, then you follow these steps to create a new work item type:



  1. In Visual Studio, click the File menu, click the New option, and then click the File option to open a New File dialog box.
  2. In the New File dialog box, under the Categories section, select the General option, and under the Templates section select XML File.
  3. Use the following XML syntax to create a new work item type:

<witd…>
<WORKITEMTYPE name=”WorkItemTypeName”>
                                                <DESCRIPTION>description</DESCRIPTION>
<FIELDS>

<FIELD name=”FieldName” refname=”Microsoft.VSTS.Common.ResolvedDate” type=”DateTime”>
</FIELD>

</FIELDS>
</WORKITEMTYPE>
</witd:WITD>


The Project Reader group membership will not allow you to create a new work item type. The Project Reader is a project-level group that provides its users the permissions to only view a team project. These users cannot create, modify, or delete any team project element.


The Project Contributor group membership will not allow you to create a new work item type. The Project Contributor is a project-level group that provides its users the read and write permissions to modify a team project. However, members of this group cannot perform administrative tasks such as creating a new work item type.


The Project Build Services group membership will not allow you to create a new work item type. The Project Build Services is a project-level group that provides its users the permission to build a project. However, members of this group cannot perform administrative tasks such as creating a new work item type.


The Team Foundation Licensed Users group membership will not allow you to create a new work item type. The Team Foundation Licensed Users is a server-level group that is created by default after the installation of Team Foundation Server Work Group Edition and allows a minimum of one and a maximum of five users to connect to the server.
