We run TFS 2010 and use the work items. We are migrating the support desk but don't want them to be able to raise bugs, tasks etc - is there a way to lock them down to just issue? Also despite putting security on the iterations the support desk user is still able to see all the iterations in the project?
- You can lock down the creation of a work item type by adding 'not' rule to a transition. In that case you deny a TFS group to be able to execute that transition.
- Not showing the iterations you don't have security for, is something we hear more often. It is on our backlog to do, but it will not be part of Dev11 (TFS vNext). There is also a request on UserVoice you can vote on if it is important for you. Sorry I cannot do more for you on this topic.
