TFS Settings

When you are setting up your version control configurations on the Version Control Settings dialog, and you set the configuration type to TFS, the dialog  presents a set of fields specific to TFS-based configurations. You can then define details such as:

The working copy folder to be used with the configuration
The user name and password to log in to the TFS server
The path to the TFS command line client

Server Name

Displays the name of the TFS Server that is associated with the working copy folder specified in the Working Copy Path field, above.

This field is read-only; Enterprise Architect retrieves the value it displays by querying the TFS client.

 

 

Workspace Name

This field is read-only; Enterprise Architect retrieves the value it displays by querying the TFS client.

Click on this button to specify the path to the TFS command line client, by opening a file browser dialog and navigating through the file system to locate the appropriate file.

 

 

VC Time-Out Value

Specify the amount of time that Enterprise Architect waits for a TFS command to complete; if the command does not complete within the allowed time, the system displays a Time-out error message, detailing the command that failed to complete.

This single time-out value is applied to all version control configurations (of types SVN, TFS and CVS) that the user accesses from this workstation.

 

 

Notes

If you automatically log in to TFS through means external to Enterprise Architect (for example, through MS Integrated Security), you can leave the User Name and Password fields blank
If the Password field is blank, Enterprise Architect retrieves the your Windows username and uses that value when determining whether a package file is checked out to you or to another user
TFS version control can also be accessed using the TFS MSSCCI client; to make use of the TFS MSSCCI client, please define an SCC based version control configuration
You define the TFS-specific details as part of the broader process of setting up a version control configuration on the Version Control Settings dialog
