Mike Azocar So long and thanks for all the Fish!
Team Foundation Server has a pretty slick security model for source code.á On my current project, we have run into a situation that requires us to have two development teams running in parallel but deploying to production at different times.á One of the challenges that we face is that we share a code library and many common classes.á To make sure that no change slips through without both teams being made aware of it, we have locked down all of the files by taking away "Check Out" permissions from the "Contributors" group in Team System.á That forces any changes to these files to go through either the architect or one of the project managers.á What is cooler about this is that I have set permissions on folders as well as individual files.á To access this feature, right click on the file or folder in the Source Code Explorer, select properties and choose the Security tab. Happy Coding! Posted on Friday, July 21, 2006 8:07 PM Tools | Back to top
