Uppercase and lowercase issue in Work Item field custom values

by Xavier Dilip Kumar 9. October 2015 08:31

Issue:

The uppercase value entered for a Work Item field is displayed as lowercase once the Work Item template is deployed.

Example:

The N/A value is displayed as n/a

Explanation:

The custom values defined in the Work Item templates are stored in the collection database table named Constants

SELECT [ConstID],[DisplayPart],[String] FROM [Tfs_DefaultCollection].[dbo].[Constants] where DisplayPart = 'N/A 

Workaround:

Manually update the DisplayPart data to required case letter.

Update [Tfs_DefaultCollection].[dbo].[Constants] set [DisplayPart] = 'N/A' where [ConstID] = '7777' 

Warning: Manipulating TFS tables directly is neither recommended nor supported and might corrupt the database leading to unrecoverable state.

Can TFS service account be non interactive?

by Xavier Dilip Kumar 8. October 2015 19:34

Explanation:

Yes. The TFS service account can be non interactive. But the account which is used to install and configure should be interactive and should have the following permissions.

  • Local admin on the TFS Server
  • SysAdmin on SQL Server

The interactive admin account used to install and configure the TFS will grant the necessary permissions to the non interactive Service account
