I have a little problem with a work item.
My goal is to change the
<ALLOWEDVALUES>of a work item to an AD group, so that not all "ValidUsers" can get a work item assigned. For this I've created a new TFS group "TFS_AssignGroup" and added the AD-group (AD-TFS_AssignGroup) to it.
Now I've changed the work item type definition:
<FIELD name="Assigned To" refname="System.AssignedTo" type="String" syncnamechanges="true" reportable="dimension"> <HELPTEXT>The person currently working on this bug</HELPTEXT> <ALLOWEDVALUES expanditems="true" filteritems="excludegroups"> <LISTITEM value="[project]\TFS_AssignGroup" /> </ALLOWEDVALUES> </FIELD>
Now I expected, that the AssignedTo-field only shows the people, who are in the AD-group. But it actually only shows me the AD-group itself. So I have exactly one entry in my AssignedTo-field: AD-TFS_AssignGroup.

that's exactly how it should work,
but TFS need some time to synchronize changes made on user groups. You can try to restart TFS, or IIS on TFS. But, until now it should already be synchronized.
Did you refresh your project or restart your Visual Studio after that?

Oh my, looks like I was to impatient. You are right, everything is how it should be.
