Team Foundation Server 2012 Build: The deployed status

When looking at the TFS 2012 Web Access, I noticed that there are 3 possible Build States: ‘queued’, ‘completed’, ‘deployed’

‘queued’ and ‘completed’ I was aware of but ‘deployed’ I had never noticed before.

I found out that the ‘deployed’ value is only set when you are using the Azure integration. But if you really want to use it yourself, you can always set the value through Powershell:

I hope you may help me, I tried the snippet above with the parameters below. Values in curly bracket removed to protect the innocent :)

$TfsService = "http://{url of tfs service}:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection"
$Quality = "Released"
$Uri = "vstfs:///Build/Build/{number}"

Result is error {username} needs Update build information permissions for build definition {build name} in team project {project name} to perform the action. For more information, contact the Team Foundation Server administrator

Seeing as I am the administrator what do I need to do?
