How do I create a true service account on TFS Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In TFS online, there is the optionfor secondary credentials for a user that can be user as a servoce account. Downside for me is that these are credentials linked to a person (that can leave) and also seems connected to the permissions that this user has.

    I am looking more for a true service account. Not linked to anybody with minimal permissions for the service that it is meant for (in this case TeamCity build, which is already set up so I do not want to move to TFS build just yet)

    HOw should I set this up?

  • Hi Owin,

    According to your description, you are using TFS online, the Visual Studio Team Service is the better place for this issue and I will move it there for you.
