v3 - Only shows Projects from DefaulCollection

Jun 2, 2010 at 7:19 PM

I just installed the new Beta release for V3, and its great. Works very nicely. The problem Im having is that in TFS 2010, there are Collections, and by default, you get a collection "DefaultCollection" installed for you. v3 only sees projects in the DefaultCollection, and does not see other collections.

Is this an issue/configuration setup/planned future release?

Actually i noticed, that if you change your web.config file to point to the collection path, instead of just the url path, you can force it to use that specific collection. In that case, you would have to deploy multiple sites specific to the collection. So for example...

Site: http://tfsserver/taskboard/defaultcollection would have a setting like this:

<add key="tfsServer" value="http://tfsserver:8080/tfs/defaultcollection"/>

Site: http://tfsserver/taskboard/another_collection would have a setting like this:

<add key="tfsServer" value="http://tfsserver:8080/tfs/another_collection"/>

This, obviously, would be a small hack to get going.

Thanks, I will update the installations docs. If you think a single site should be able to handle multiple collections you can always register a feature request. But, I am guessing that it would require a lot of refactoring.
