How to: Configure Work Item Hyperlinks to use Team System Web Access

You can configure work item hyperlinks that are sent from Team Foundation Server or Team Explorer to link to Web pages in Team System Web Access. By default, Team Foundation Server sends e-mail alerts that contain links to static read-only Web pages. Also, when you send query results from Team Explorer in e-mail, the work item links are to static read-only Web pages. Web pages in Team System Web Access are dynamic and can modify items in the work item database. You can configure this Team System Web Access setting by using the ConfigureConnections command on the tfsadminutil utility.

Required Permissions

To use the ConfigureConnections command, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators security group on the Team Foundation application-tier server and a member of the sysadmin security group for SQL Server on the Team Foundation data-tier server. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To configure alerts to use Team System Web Access

  1. Log on to the application-tier server for Team Foundation Server.

  2. Open a Command Prompt window and move to the following subdirectory:

    \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server\Tools

  3. Type **tfsadminutil configureconnections /tswauri:http://TSWA computer:**port

    Replace TSWA computer as the name of the computer that is running Team System Web Access and Port as the port number that Team System Web Access is configured to use. The default port number is 8090.
