TFS 2015 Builds–Required rights to upload tasks

Today I introduced a colleague into the world of the new TFS 2015 task based build system. Unfortunately he didn’t succeed on uploading a task. I couldn’t remember the required rights to upload a task.

Some investigation brought the answer, to upload tasks you should be at least Agent Pool Administrator. This can be configured on the TFS administration page.

Here are the steps involved to configure this on VSTS(the steps for TFS on Premise are similar):

  • Click on All Pools

  • On the right you should see 2 groups: Agent Pool Administrators and Agent Pool Service Accounts

  • Click on the Agent Pool Administrators group and choose Add… to add extra users
