Renaming your Team Foundation Service Account

21Jan13

If you haven’t checked out TFS Service from Microsoft then I thoroughly recommend trying it out. It is basically a TFS instance in the cloud and at the moment its free for everyone to use and there‚Äôs an official a free plan for small projects up to 5 users. I run a small TFS instance on my WHS but I’m planning on switching completely to the TFS Service offering to avoid having to manage a TFS installation locally.

One thing that caught me out was the issue of naming your TFS Service Account. I didn’t give much thought to it initially but then once I found how good the service was I began to wish I’d named it something more appropriate. Well, as the TFS team are releasing service updates at such a rapid cadence I didn’t have to wait long for a rename feature. The process to rename your service account is detailed in Brian Harry’s blog here.

Even if you are not enthusiastic about a cloud based centralised ALM tool I recommend checking out Brian Harry’s blog anyway for informative posts on how his team is managing three week sprints and continuous delivery within Microsoft. What this team is delivering for their customers is impressive.
