  • Hi Rejandre,


    This is a known bug in Tswa and it is fixed. The fix will be available with Tswa SP1 which is going to be released soon. Thanks for your feedback and patience.

    Hi Serkan,

    Is this fix is included in TFS SP1?

    Is TSWA SP1 is available in next week? If not can I get Fix early before TSWA SP1 release?

  • Raj,


    We have been experiencing this also, and have been told for quite some time that the fix will be in SP1.


    For your information, this may assist in the short term, we found that the issue relates to a situation where a work item is linked to a work item in another project, and the user doesn't have permissions to that other project.


    Our workaround has been to add users who needed to access these work items into the "Readers" group for the linked projects.


    Of course, this may not be the case in your situation. Good luck, anyway.

  • Hi,

    The new version of TSWA should have fixed this issue.

  • This issue is not fixed in TSWA SP1. Its alive and well. To clarify, the "issue" as manifested in our environment, is the one outlined by Dylan: Users get the error who don't have permissions to one or more projects referenced by a linked work item.

  • First of all, we are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    I've just tried the following scenario with the latest version of Team System Web Access and it worked. Please let me know, what am I doing different or wrong here to reproduce this issue.

    Here are my repro steps:

    • User A is Contributor in Project A
    • User A cannot access to Project B
    • There is a Work Item A which belongs to Project A
    • There is a Work Item B which belongs to Project B
    • There is a link between Work Item A and Work Item B
    In my case, User A can open Work Item A successfully. In the links of Work Item A, there is a warning for Work Item B saying that "Unable to access work item B".

  • Hi all,
    This is globalisation cluture issue. TSWA 2008 SP1 will not support all langaugages like Finish. If we set the globalisation culture to fi-FI, this error does not come.
    This solved our problem
