You can get Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition with Team System client products that are licensed with MSDN Premium Subscriptions. The functionality of the Workgroup Edition is identical to that of Team Foundation Server, Standard Edition except that the number of users is limited to five.
Special Group Membership for Workgroup Edition
After you install Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition, you must add users to Team Foundation Licensed Users security group in order for them to connect to the server.
This security group is a server-level group specific to the Workgroup Edition. This group is created during installation of the Workgroup Edition, but not the Trial Edition or the Standard Edition. The user account used during installation is added to the group by default. You can add up to four additional users to this group manually.
This group controls connection to the server only. It does not control access to creating projects or working within projects. Additional security groups control access to the server's functionality.
Other Team Foundation Server Roles and Membership
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators security group.
All Team Foundation Server editions require users to be members of a Team Foundation Server group at the project level or server level. The level and group depend on the functionality you want to enable for the user. For example, if you want to allow a user to create a Team Project, the user must be a member of the Team Foundation Server Administrators security group, must be assigned to the role of Content Manager in SQL Server Reporting Services, and must be assigned to the role of Administrator for Windows SharePoint Services. However, the user does not need to be a member of the local administrator group on the computer. For more information about users and roles, see the topic “Team Foundation Server Permissions” in the Team Foundation Server Administrator’s Guide.
