Unable to Change Owner - RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm receiving the following error when attempting to change the owner of my TFS account online....

    Access Denied: xxxxxxx needs the following permission(s) to perform this action: Edit collection-level information

    I've tried changing the permissions and everything looks correct (event set ALLOW for the admin user - and am logged in as that user), but it refuses to change. 

    Anybody run into this scenario.

  • Hi Zachary,

    Thanks for your post. Only an account owner can change TF Service account ownership. If an user is in admin group but not the owner, it cannot perform the action.
