Team Foundation Server 2015–Create a new Team Project from the web interface

For a long time, the only way to create a new Team Project in TFS on premise was through Visual Studio. With the introduction of Visual Studio Team Services(VSTS), an option was added to create your Team Project directly from the web interface.

Unfortunately this feature was only available in the online version and I couldn’t find the same option on premise… or at least this was what I thought.

Recently I discovered the following option inside the web interface(look at the last option at the bottom):

Yes! The option is finally available. I have no clue when it was added, but I’m glad it’s there…

When you click on it, the New team project window is shown:

Note that you cannot create and configure Reporting Services and Sharepoint integration for your team project, if you decide to create your team project through the web interface.
