Editing TFS Source Control Profiles

To add a TFS source control profile, the Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere 2015 command-line client (English version) needs to be installed on the front-end server and every execution server on which you want to use the source control profile. You can download the CLC from the Microsoft GitHub repository. You must run Team Explorer Everywhere and accept the license agreement to make the integration work. For more information, refer to this knowledge base article.

To modify a TFS source control profile:

  1. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  2. Click the Source Control tab. The Source Control page opens, listing all of the source control profiles that have been created for the system.
  3. Click on the name of the source control profile that you want to modify. The Edit Source Control Profile dialog box opens.
  4. Edit the Name of the profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where profiles are available for selection.
  5. Edit the URL of the TFS Repository you want to access.
  6. Edit the Username and Password. These credentials are used to access your repository.
  7. Optional: Edit the Common working folder to which the Silk Central execution server copies the source files. The working folder must be a local path. For example, C:\TempSources\.
    Warning: It is recommended to leave this field empty and let Silk Central use a temporary working folder instead. Specifying a static working folder can lead to unexpected results when running parallel executions. The temporary location can be queried from the predefined parameter #sctm_source_root_dir.
  8. Edit the Project path you want this profile to use.
  9. Click OK.

    Silk Central attempts a trial connection to the external system using the information you have provided.

    Note: If an error occurs, please review the information that you have supplied, or consult your administrator.

If the trial connection is successful, you are returned to the Source Control page.
