Licencing for TFS - RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    If someone is a SCRUM master using TFS, what licencing do they need to access the TFS system? We have a new guy who is not a developer so does not have MSDN or Visual Studio, but is our SCRUM master and needs to interact with TFS.

    I don't think they will need Visual Studio or MSDN licences so what is the minimum licence required to use TFS?

    Thanks

    Jason
