When you save a work item in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server, you receive the following error message:
The server operation failed (BackendArgumentException)
This problem occurs because a combination of the Deny Read
permission and of the Allow Write
permission is not supported in work item tracking. If you have this permission combination, you receive an error message when you save a work item.Note
Even though you receive an error message, the work item that you are trying to save is still saved to the team project.
To resolve this problem, set the Read
permission to Allow
for the affected user. To do this, follow these steps:
- In Team Explorer, right-click the project for which you want to modify the permissions. Click Team Project Settings, and then click Areas and Iterations.
- Select the area or the iteration that you want to modify, and then click Security.
- Select the user, click to select the Allow check box for the View work items in this node option, and then click Close.
You must log on as a user who has administrative credentials for the team project that you want to change before you follow these steps.
