Assign To: not getting populated

Aug 7, 2008 at 5:01 PM
None of the dropdowns that appear to require population from the TFS server are being populated.  Could this be a security issue?  Or what else might cause this.

Hi - sorry for the delayed response, I have been on vacation for a few days.

The symptoms to your problem are vague enough that I am not certain to the cause. TFS Permissions may be good place to start. Do you experience this behavior on multiple TFS projects? In Visual Studio (not using TeamReview) are you able to create new Work Items and assign them to other users?

We might need a little back-and-forth troubleshooting on this one, so let me know what you can find out and I'll do some more thinking.

I am having this issue also, it appears to be a client problem, as for another member of my team (we are both TFS administrators, permissions should be the same) the dropdowns are populated.  I am only having an issue with the assign to: dropdown.  I am able to create new work items and assign to other users.  Let me know what I can do to help troubleshoot.

This is a tough one. Theoretically the assign to drop down should be populated with all users in the Contributors and Project Administrators groups; assuming that I am using the Team System API correctly. Have you debugged an Add-In before? Would you be willing to try? I've linked to directions how to debug TeamReview below, and I'd be willing to walk you through it any way that you'd like. This bug seems situational; and I haven't been able to recreate that situation.

Debug directions:

You'll need to uninstall TeamReview first.

I very much appreciate that you've posted what you've been able to find so far.

Sorry All - totally my bad.  Looks like I didn't have *any* users in the contributers groups that was being read by the add-in.

Once I added the users in the proper groups - everything populated and it is working great!

Thanks for the replies, sorry for the wasted time...

  What groups did you have to add the developers to?
Sep 9, 2008 at 7:06 PM
With release 1.0.6 -  Contributors. The next release will use both Contributors and Project Administrators

Any idea when this release will be ready for release?
Sep 15, 2008 at 4:52 PM
Yes, sometime this week. The feature you are looking for has already been committed, you can get a preview by downloading the latest check-in and compiling. I am at VSX Dev Con today and tomorrow, I'm hoping to get some feedback on TeamReview and then commit any easy wins from that feedback before releasing.
