Tuesday, May 01, 2012 2:10 PMWe have a few VM's set up in different projects and we have some users who are unable to see the environments in MTLM that the rest of us can see. I have looked through all of the permissions I know about but have been unable to allow them to see them. Strange part is they are able to see environments in other projects. I am at a loss here, please help. What permissions do I need to set to allow someone to see the environments in MTLM?

Hi, you can give them the below permission
Manage test environments
Users who have this permission can create and delete test environments for this team project.

As far as I know that you need to have the View Lab Resources on the team project level to view the envrionments in the MTLM. By default, members of the Team Foundation Server Administrators, Team Project Collection Administrators, Team Project Administrators, Team Project Contributors, and Team Project Readers groups have this permission.
You can also grant this permission for users by using the TfsLabConfig Permissions command: TfsLabConfig Permissions /collection:http://TfsServerName:8080/tfs/collectionName /user:domain\userName /allow:Read

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 11:53 AMThanks Vicki that was the permission I needed exactly. I have to say though it really is aweful that a set of tfs permissions are behind a command line and not exposed in any UI like the rest of the TFS permissions.
