I have a TFS Group, Assignable Users, which contains a Windows group, Applications Devs. THe work item xml looks like this:
<FieldDefinition reportable="dimension" refname="System.AssignedTo" name="Assigned To" syncnamechanges="true" type="String">
<VALIDUSER for="[global]\Assignable Users" />
<VALIDUSER not="[global]\NonAssignable " />
<HELPTEXT>The person currently working on this story</HELPTEXT>
- Not all users in Application Devs are showing up in TeamWeb Access. -
- The behaviour does not occur in Team Explorer!
Question: How do I ensure that all members of a windows group get shown in the AssignedTo dropdown on Team Web Access?

If you want to have Assigned to field populated with a certain group you should use group attribute instead of for. For and not seem to control to whom the rules apply whereas group specifies for whom the rule applies.
I know this a bit confusing but that's what I understood from the following link.
And please make sure that you reset the app pool of Web Access after making any change in the work item type definition.

There seems to be a variance between Team Web Access and Team Explorer. I use the Process Editor toadd the xml, using the 'group' attribute. Unfortunately, even after iisreset and recycling the Team Web Access app pool, I do not see certain users in the Assigned To field in Team Web Access, even though they belong to the specified group. The list is fine in Team Explorer, however.
