Create a new drop down field with all domain users


  • Hello,

    Hoping someone can help me out.

    I am looking to add a new drop down field called 'Requester' to our Product Backlog Item work items. I am using Process Editor to modify the work items.

    The purpose of this field is to identify the end user that initially logged the request so that we can go back to them in the future when the item gets worked on.

    How can I have this new drop down automatically populate with all domain users? I understand that I can create a new global group and have domain users as a member, however this will mean that they all become 'Valid users' and I don't think I want that as it will impact other lists.

  • Hi Anil,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, 'Valid users' is necessary when create a new global group, or the group will not have the permission to access work items.

    Best regards,

  • You may create a TFS group (say Requester) of Valid Domain Users. Assign this TGS group as user source. If you remove/ update the user list from Requester Group same will be reflected in WIT.
