I need to change the permissions other users workspaces.
The workspace is actually private and i need to change it to public to perform some operations and after back to private.
with command line i can perform this:
tf workspace /collection:COLLECTION WORKSPACE;USER /permission:Private|Public
there is a way to make this using the api?

Thanks for your post.
For how to change the Workspace’s permission using TFS API, please refer to this blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/phkelley/archive/2010/02/04/improvements-to-workspaces-in-tfs-2010.aspx.
// Use the current directory to infer the workspace and TFS team project collection.
WorkspaceInfo wi = Workstation.Current.GetLocalWorkspaceInfo(Environment.CurrentDirectory);
TfsTeamProjectCollection tpc = new TfsTeamProjectCollection(wi.ServerUri);
VersionControlServer vcs = tpc.GetService<VersionControlServer>();
Workspace workspace = vcs.GetWorkspace(wi);
// Get the identity service for the TPC.
IIdentityManagementService ims = tpc.GetService<IIdentityManagementService>();
// Get the security service for the TPC and use it to get the workspace security namespace.
ISecurityService security = tpc.GetService<ISecurityService>();
SecurityNamespace workspaceSecurityNamespace =
// Get the access control list for the workspace, using the workspace's security token in the namespace.
AccessControlList acl = workspaceSecurityNamespace.QueryAccessControlList(workspace.SecurityToken,
